Box Score: How to Train Your Dragon flies back on top.



With two new R-rated films underperforming at the weekend box office, the family-friendly How to Train Your Dragon [HTRYD] regained the top stop with an estimated $20 million in its fourth frame.   The 3D fantasy from DreamWorks Animation declined just 20% in bringing its cumulative gross to $158.6 million.

Like its title character, Kick-Ass [KCKAS] got its ass kicked at the box office.  The Lionsgate release debuted in second place with $19.7 milion.  The violent superhero satire did not live up to its fanboy buzz, while its R-rating kept out its prime target demographic of young males teenagers.

Date Night [DATEN] ended the weekend at the third spot with $17.3 million.  The adult-oriented comedy tailed off a respectable 31% second weekend to bring its 10-day sum to $49.2 million.

Death at a Funeral [DEFUN] gathered $17.0 million to open fourth overall.  The R-rated comedy remake was unable to cross outside the core African-American audience.

Personally I found the movie pretty awesome, much better than Kill Bills. This is going to cult category as far as I'm concerned, it's fresh, daring and well acted. Shame teens can only pirate the movie to see it, otherwise it could have had a much strong
