New releases can't beat the fiery power of "How to Train Your Dragon". "The Back-Up Plan", "The Losers" and "Oceans" which were released over the weekend performed well below the DreamWorks Animation which almost hit number one last week had "Kick-Ass" not become such a tough competition.

Experiencing 23.5% decline in ticket sales, "Dragon" scores $15 million in the champion spot mainly from 3-D theaters. It is by far the lowest-grossing weekend of 2010, but according to Box Office Mojo, "Dragon" will vie with "Kung Fu Panda" to become DreamWorks Animation's highest-grossing non-"Shrek" movie. "We couldn't be more thrilled to be No. 1 in the fifth week," said Anne Globe, head of worldwide marketing for DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc.
