Most thought like myself that this would have been a quiet weekend due to the lack of new activity and the Oscars being shown, but we shouldn’t have forgot of the power of dragons and families. As the second sequel of the ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ series, did significantly better compared to the rest of the films these past weeks and also had the best performance out of three films in the series for its opening weekend.
Elsewhere in the box office it was indeed quiet as expected, with all the films doing only from 12 million and under.
