Loser: "How To Train Your Dragon 2"
Release date: June 13
Domestic box office as of June 30: $121.8 million
International box office as of June 30: $106.1 million
Lowdown: This was not supposed to be the one black eye on 20th Century Fox's monster 2014 slate. Many, including this writer, thought "Dragon 2" could be the #1 film of the summer. Instead, marketing issues and an unexpectedly competitive release date have turned the critically acclaimed sequel and Best Animated Feature Film Oscar frontrunner into a massive disappointment commercially. With most of the European markets opening in July and August, DreamWorks Animation will hope for a big turnaround internationally, but it's not looking good so far.
