Summer Smackdowns! 5 Hottest Battles at the Box Office

56 minutes ago

Summer's head-to-head opening weekend battles at the box office are fun, even if the comparisons don't necessarily make sense. When a family movie like “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” for example, opens on the same weekend as an R-rated comedy like “22 Jump Street,” it's not as if they're competing for the same moviegoers. The target audiences are different, their theaters could be disproportionate, one could be in 3D — all factors that make for unfair fights,  (It's not all about a film's first three days either, but that's a different story.)
