DreamWorks seems to like not having to compete against Pixar in their latest 3D animated movie. Now in it’s fourth weekend, it raked in around $20 million this weekend to bring its total to just shy of $160 million and this is why one should watch How To Train Your Dragon online free. The film has a staggering 98% on Rotten Tomatoes right now. Looks like 3D continues to impress audiences.
Lionsgate’s superhero parody Kick-Ass placed an incredibly close second in its debut, so close that when the numbers are made official tomorrow it may end up snagging the top spot. Steve Carrell’s Date Night was third.
You can expect these box office numbers to grow in popularity in at least some small segment of the public consciousness, as betting of box office success has exploded on sports booking websites. That’s an interesting trend I look forward to seeing more of.
