How To Train Your Dragon 2 Is Now 2014's Biggest Animated Feature
Following a very strong opening weekend in China, Dean DeBlois's sequel has soared past the $500 million mark. Not only does that put it ahead of the previous film's already impressive $495 million haul, it also takes it clear of Rio 2 to become the year's biggest animated hit at the global box-office so far. In it's home market, Dragons 2 is a distant second to The Lego Movie, only managing 12th place overall. The toy-based brickbuster is in fact currently the second biggest film of the year overall in the US, but whether it can hold on until year's end is a different matter entirely. How To Train Your Dragon 2 is still playing in select cinemas in the US and UK.
