Universal/Dreamwork Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, the third and final installment in the franchise, dominated the U.S. box office for the second consecutive week grossing $30 million for a total of $97.6 million at home.
Following a franchise-best opening weekend of $55 million, the film dropped 45.4% in its second frame, which was better than the 50% fall of HTTYD2, but steeper than the original’s 33.7% second-week performance.
The Dean DeBlois-directed threequel was also the weekend’s top performing film internationally, scoring an additional $52 million from 58 markets. A big chunk of that figure — $33.4M — came from China, where the film displaced Alita: Battle Angel as that country’s top grossing film. The film’s total foreign gross to date is $280.9M, and the global total stands at $378.5M.
