"How to Train Your Dragon" continues to breathe fire at the box office, The Associated Press reports.
The DreamWorks Animation adventure took in $15 million to reclaim the No. 1 spot in its fifth weekend of release. "How to Train Your Dragon" opened in first place in late March, then dropped back into the pack. The tale of a Viking youth and his pet dragon raised its total to $178 million.
"To be No. 1 in week five, it's an exciting time," said Anne Globe, head of marketing for DreamWorks Animation. "Especially to be decisively No. 1 after last weekend's box-office shenanigans." The box office had ended in rare photo finishes for two straight weekends as movies bunched up tightly in the rankings.
