Last weekend's false victory aside, this weekend How to Train Your Dragon really did return to the top of the box office list, its giant, leathery wings overshadowing two middling releases. Four weeks after it opened with $43 million, it still managed to scrounge up $15 million -- enough to make The Back-up Plan, Jennifer Lopez's grand return to movies, come in second place. If only she'd been more leathery! If only!
After three weeks at the number-one spot at the box office, Tim Burton's dystopic Alice in Wonderland has finally slipped a notch, making only $17 million to How to Train Your Dragon's $43 million. While Dragon is clearly the kiddies' flavor of the week, Alice is still a box office bonanza, with a domestic tally of $293 million and a worldwide total of $656 million, making it one of the top 40 moneymakers of all time. Speaking of movies about guys who ride dragons and movies that made a lot of money, No.1 movie of all time Avatar has finally dropped out of the Top Ten, having made $2.7 billion worldwide. That should do it for now, right? [Well, at least until they re-release it with bonus scenes. -- Angel]
