Box Office: ‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ Takes Off With $3 Million
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” flew to $3 million at about 3,200 North American location on Thursday night.

The figure doubled the preview gross for “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” which pulled in $1.5 million two weeks ago on Feb. 8.

Universal has predicted an opening weekend for “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” in the $40 million range at 4,259 sites — somewhat shy of its predecessors, 2010’s “How to Train Your Dragon,” which made $43.7 million for Paramount, and 2014’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” which earned $49.4 million for Fox. The third entry in the franchise is the first DreamWorks Animation title being released by Universal since it acquired the animation studio in 2016 for $3.8 billion.

Other tracking services have estimated that “The Hidden World” could pull in as much as $50 million in its first three days of release. The animated adventure has already earned $181 million since beginning its international rollout in January.
