“How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ Trailer

The third, and reportedly final film in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise has dropped a new trailer online and showcases just why this franchise is so successful – it full of heart, has great characters, and still funny.

This new trailer for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World shows that the creators will dive deeper into two key story threads; toothless encountering a potential mate and stopping the villainous dragon hunter Grimmel from making his way to Berk with the intention of capturing as many dragons as possible.

It stands to reason that The Hidden World will meet the very high standards of the previous two films in the franchise.  But we shall have to see for ourselves.  The film will be released into theaters on February 22, 2019.

What did you think of this trailer?  Will you be seeing the this third instalment in the franchise?  Leave a comment below and lets make a discussion about it.

March 10-12 Box Office Results

If you guessed that Kong would emerge from this past box office as the victor, then you were correct.  Kong: Skull Island was able to draw a pretty decent crowd to the theater and made just over $61 Million, beating expectations that had predicted the film would only make $50 Million.  However, if the studios are going to make any money with Kong, then the film needs to be a hit oversees in order to get back their budget of $185 Million.

However, while Kong did get number one at the Box Office, I do not think it it’s the top story.  What I believe is even more impressive is that Universal’s Get Out was able to cross the $100 Million mark, which is something that nobody had predicted would happen.  Especially on just its 3rd weekend in theaters.

The other thing worth noting is Logan’s performance, which only had the film dropping 50% between week one and week 2.  While that does seem like a bit of a drop at first, after considering its competition this weekend it is actually very impressive it made that much money again. The critical praise and great word of mouth from fans are driving people to see this movie, and I am predicting it stays in the top 5 for the rest of the March.

It looks like a ‘Trolls’ seaquel is already in the works.

Universal finally has another animated property that can be milked to death and it’s NOT tied to Despicable Me.

The studio has announced it will release DreamWorks’ sequel to Trolls.  It has a release date set for April 10, 2020.  Interestingly enough, this is a date previously reserved for an untitled Universal event film.

Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake are reprising their roles as Poppy and Branch in the musical comedy-adventure.

This property was originally inspired by the popular Troll dolls of the 1960. Mike Mitchell‘s Trolls featured a script by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger.  Besides Kendrick and Timberlake, the film stared James Corden, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor and Quvenzhane Wallis. It also got an Academy Award nomination this year for best original song for Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!”

I have never seen Trolls, but it comes as no surprise that a sequel is in the works.  Last year Trolls grossed $339 Million at the world-wide box office – on a budget of $125 Million. And it’s going to continue to make money on DVD and Digital Download sales due to its appeal with families.

While the yet untitled Trolls sequel is still three years away, audiences are for sure going to flock out to see this film in 2020

The ‘Fate of the Furious’ International trailer shows a little more story

Universal Pictures Latino has released the new international Fate of the Furious trailer!  Check it out.

The film is being released on heels of 2015’s Furious 7, one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion worldwide in box-office history and the sixth-biggest global blockbuster of all time.

Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon, Brian and Mia have retired from the game, and the rest of the crew has been vindicated.  The globetrotting team has finally found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime and betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage… and to bring home the man who made them a family.

The Fate of the Furious, Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Helen Mirren. The film is directed by Straight Outta Compton director, F. Gary Gray.
