How to Train Your Dragon 2 is so awesome. It’s everything you want in a big summer blockbuster. Action, romance, surprises, suspense, yet for some reason it hasn’t struck a cultural chord like many people expected it to. However, it’s not over yet for Hiccup and Toothless.
In its second week at the box office, the film crossed $100 million domestic and will pass $200 worldwide later in its third week. Plus, it was the number one movie on a daily basis in its second week. That indicates staying power. Sure that’ll change thanks to Optimus Prime and the gang but there’s still plenty of time for film goers looking for a dynamite time at the movies to find How to Train Your Dragon 2, a beautiful and rewarding movie in every way.
And when I say “in every way” I mean that. The Soundworks Collection has done a video detailing the sound work in the film. It’s great watch to see some of the small details that can regularly go unnoticed in a film of this size and scope. Read More »
Gallery Nucleus has once again teamed with Dreamworks Animation for an art show celebrating the company’s How To Train Your Dragon film series. The How To Train Your Dragon art was created as a tribute to the movies by artists on the film’s creative team, curated specifically for this art exhibit. While the show does have some beautiful original works of art, those are a bit pricey — so I wanted to showcase some of the more affordable limited edition prints they have released (available to purchase online). The piece above is my favorite from the series, TOOTHLESS ON TOP by Ryan Savas. Hit the jump to check out my favorite pieces from the How To Train Your Dragon art show.

We here at /Film love How To Train Your Dragon. In fact, our own David Chen saw it in theaters seven times. Seven. Times. So it’s been a long four years as we waited for director Dean DeBlois to show us the second chapter in his family fantasy story, based on the books by Cressida Cowell.
That day is finally here. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is now in theaters bringing us the return of Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), Astrid (America Ferrara), Stoick (Gerald Butler) and, of course, Toothless. A few years have passed since the end of the first film and a lot of changed in Berk. Things will get especially different with the gang runs into a group of dragon trappers who open the doors to a wild, expansive story that’s bigger and more emotional than the first one in every way.
Below, we encourage you to talk about How to Train Your Dragon 2. What did you think? Is it better than the first one? What was the biggest surprise? Did the trailer “spoiler” ruin anything for you? Talk all about How to Train your Dragon 2 below. Read More »
I saw How to Train Your Dragon seven times in theaters when it was released in 2010. For me, few other films have taken better advantage of the IMAX format, and few have done a better job at conveying the exhilaration of flight. But beyond being a technical marvel, it also had a lot of heart and introduced us to one of the most adorable, heart-melting animated characters ever conceived, Toothless.
This weekend, How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits theaters. Could it live up to my impossibly high expectations? Find my video review after the jump.
