Yay! "How to Train Your Dragon" Flies Back Atop Box-Office! 


It's another "too close to call" weekend as "How to Train Your Dragon" soared back to the top, fending off "Kick-Ass." The fantastic animated adventure earned $20 million at the box-office, versus $19.75 million for "Kick-Ass." (Watch my movie review of "Kick-Ass" right here)

"How to Train Your Dragon" made a rare dramatic leap back to the top. So far, the DreamWorks Animation film raised its total to $158.6 million. The film's quality gave it longevity at the box-office.

Last weekend, it was a "too close to call" fight between "Date Night" and "Clash of the Titans" but the greek mythology actioner eventually won. This week, the remake starring Sam Worthington, fell to No. 5 with $15.8 million. (Check out my movie review of "Clash of the Titans" right here)
