A screengrab from ‘How to Train Your Dragon The Hidden World

The movie, voiced by Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett and F. Murray Abraham, recounts the tale of young Hiccup and his dragon Toothless as they go in search of a hidden world reputed to be a dragon's utopia. The animated adventure is just shy of the US$100 million mark in the U.S. with its domestic tally now sitting at US$97.6 million. At this rate it could very well beat out the previous two, which took in $217 million and $177 million stateside, respectively.

Lionsgate's release of "A Madea Family Funeral" marks the end of a highly profitable 15-year Madea franchise, according to producer/director Tyler Perry, one of the highest-earning men in the entertainment world. To be fair, The Hidden World averaged $12,919 in slightly fewer theaters for its premiere.

That's not the case with Warner Bros.' The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. Whether this is franchise fatigue after The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie, or simply the failure to capture lightning in a bottle again is up for debate, but the grosses show that audiences are tiring of LEGO-based films.

HIV Eliminated By Bone Marrow Transplant In Cancer Patient : Shots
Gupta described his patient as " functionally cured " and "in remission ", but cautioned: "It's too early to say he's cured". CCR5 is the most commonly used receptor by HIV-1 - the virus strain of HIV that dominates around the world - to enter cells.

Best-picture victor "Green Book" got a post-Oscars bump, adding $4.71 million over the weekend, while the stalker-thriller "Greta" opened to a mediocre $4.6 million.

Breaking those numbers down a bit, A Madea Family Funeral was the clear box office victor for the weekend when one is looking at money-per-screen estimates.
