    Re: Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon Discussion Thread

    The weekend's No. 3 title was DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon," which boosted its overseas gross total to $176.5 million after four rounds thanks to a $15.5 million weekend at 6,582 venues in 58 markets.

    Paramount, the animation title's distributor, said about 65% of the overall weekend gross came from 3D screens. Despite unseasonably warm weather in the U.K., "Dragon" managed to hold nicely with $2.1 million generated from 683 sites (80% of which were 3D screens) for a market cume of $20 million.

    Re: Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon Discussion Thread

    I went to the local Walmart and the How to Train Your Dragon toy aisle has been wiped clean. I think Dreamworks has finally found their answer to Cars.

    Re: Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon Discussion Thread

    "How to Train Your Dragon" continues to breathe fire at the box office, while newer releases are mostly blowing smoke.

    The animated adventure took in $15 million to reclaim the No. 1 spot a month after its debut. "How to Dragon Your Dragon" opened in first place in late March, then dropped back into the pack. But it has held up strongly and climbed to the top again amid a flurry of so-so new releases.

    Re: Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon Discussion Thread

    Lets just say I'm a little more than obsessed with this movie. I've seen it 5 times now, twice in IMAX. I've been waiting for a truly great movie for dragon lovers such as myself ever since I saw Dragonheart when I was younger, Dreamworks totally caught me off guard with this one! From the trailers, I wasn't expecting this movie to have a lot of depth, and instead be more comedic than anything else. When I went to see it, I found it hard not to at least get a little teary-eyed during some of the scenes, Toothless is just the most adorable thing ever. With all its differences from the books, it is still one of the greatest animated films I've seen to date, and the $20 IMAX tickets were totally worth it, IMO.

    Sadly, my local Wallmart was out of Night Fury plushies.

    Re: Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon Discussion Thread

    How To Train your Dragon has been an enduring yet unlikely success since its launch on Mar. 26. Enduring in the longevity of its box office run, and unlikely due to its genre and how it strayed from the DreamWorks Animation norm.

    With close to $209 million through its eighth week, Dragon has grossed nearly five times what it did on its opening weekend, which is the biggest multiplier of any 2010 nationwide release thus far and, among major animated releases, the biggest multiplier since Finding Nemo. Its average weekend drop-off rate has been a slim 26 percent. When it led the April 23-25 weekend, it was the first movie in over four years to reclaim the weekend top spot, and it's been in the Top Five since it opened. The last animated feature to spend that much time in the Top Five was Toy Story in 1995.
