by on June 16, 2014

In a box office battle of sequels, comedic cops beat dragons this past weekend. DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.’s How to Train Your Dragon 2 came in second place at the box office in its premiere weekend, with its estimated $50 million in ticket sales falling $10 million short of Sony’s 22 Jump Street ticket sales. How to Train Your Dragon 2’s sales are better than the original movie’s open of $43.7 million, but is still being viewed as soft by most box office analysts.The original How to Train Your Dragon was written off as a flop after a weak debut weekend until sustained staying power at the box office, ultimately becoming the fifth top grossing DreamWorks Animation film, and the top-grossing non-Shrek film.
