How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World has managed to stay in the number one spot for the second week in a row, beating out the newly released Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral by just $3 Million. The third movie in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise continues to be a money making juggernaut despite 2019’s trend of being a pretty slow box office year so far.
According to a report put out by The Hollywood Reporter Winter 2019 box office revenue has hit an 8-Year low in the U.S, and after this past box office result it has not gotten any better.
Looking at the top 5 movies at the box office there are three films that could be described as “blockbusters,” and yet none of them have created enough revenue to get 2019 out of this box office slump.
