COUNTRY OF DRAGONS LOVES DREAMWORKS’ FILM ABOUT THEM

August 18, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

China once again set the pace for the international box office as How to Train Your Dragon 2 opened there with $25.9 million, representing 69 percent of the entire foreign gross this weekend for the DreamWorks Animation feature, which opened in 28 markets. That pushed the film’s worldwide gross past $500 million to $537.2 million. Coming in second was Disney/Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which added $33.1 million to its gross to bring its worldwide total to $418.7 million. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got off to a solid start in 29 markets with $25.6 million. But any hope of foreign sales rescuing The Expendables 3, which had a disappointing opening domestically, was dashed when the studio counted only $15 million in overseas ticket sales.
