How to Train Your Dragon Is No. 1 at the Worst Box Office Weekend of the Year

Box Office: Dragon Swoops In During a Slow Weekend

After last week's close call with Kick-Ass, the animated family film How to Train Your Dragon came out on top this time with $15 million. Unfortunately, the win is somewhat diminished by the fact that this weekend's box office had the lowest intake of the year thus far (perhaps everyone was playing outdoors?). Even the star power of Jennifer Lopez in newcomer film The Back-up Plan couldn't muster up big figures. It came in second with a modest $12.2 million.

Taking third was Date Night with $10.6 million, while The Losers debuted in its first week with a disappointing $9.6 million for fourth place. Following closely behind was Kick-Ass which dropped from No. 1 to No. 5 with $9.5 million.

I LOVE How to Train Your Dragon. I'm so glad it's doing well. I saw it in Imax 3d and in 2d (I definitely preferred it in 3d), and I want to see it in 3d again before it leaves the box-office. If you haven't seen it yet, GO SEE IT!!!!

I saw Dragon the day it came out. It was adorable! And no talking animals, thank god. Glad to see it's still doing well.
