Everyone expected '22 Jump Street' and 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' to open well, but you won't find many people who expected the raunchy R-rated comedy to open bigger than the family friendly animated adventure. But here we are! Both films opened well, but '22 Jump Street,' like the first film, is has taken a hammer to all expectations.
How to Train Your Dragon 2
With the highly anticipated film 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' set to begin a series of screenings among academic circles, we decided it was time to put pen to paper and do what biologists have failed to do for centuries -- it's time to begin surveying and classifying Draconia.
The appeal of putting humans and animals together for maximum dramatic potential, comedic hijinks, and a healthy dose of "aww, so cute" can't be denied, but that doesn't mean it's always a good idea.
Though still a couple of months away from release, you can watch the first five minutes of 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' online right now, and get reacquainted with all your favorite characters and their dragon friends. Things have changed a bit since we last saw Hiccup and Toothless, and these days the big source of entertainment for their friends comes from the rowdy and delightful dragon racing competition, which also features some sheep. Yes, sheep. But don't worry, the sheep aren't getting toasted.
Following some sneak peeks at 'How to Train Your Dragon 2,' DreamWorks has unleashed the first full trailer for the upcoming sequel, which finds Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) -- a little older, a little scrappier -- and his loyal dragon Toothless going on a dangerous new adventure to protect men and dragons alike from a new threat. And there are so. Many. More. Dragons!
We've already seen a teaser trailer for 'How to Train Your Dragon 2,' but we've known little about the voice cast this time around. During DreamWorks Animation's panel at Comic-Con this afternoon, the studio made a big casting announcement for the sequel, with actors Cate Blanchett, Kit Harington, and Djimon Hounson joining the line-up.
