The movie made $50 million in its opening weekend in the U.S., $10 million shy of several analysts’ $60 million estimate. How to Train Your Dragon 2 made an additional $24.8 million internationally but the film’s opening weekend was still deemed a disappointment.
The film has an estimated budget of about $145 million and it looks like the studio is banking on Dragon 2 to get back on track. How to Train Your Dragon — released in 2010 — grossed over $215 million in the U.S. and close to $500 million overall.
DWA stock is down about 10.7% Monday afternoon.
