It’s a sequel slugfest at the multiplexes this weekend as “How to Train Your Dragon 2″ and “22 Jump Street” battle for No. 1 at the box office.
Both films will capitalize on residual goodwill for the first installments in their respective franchises, and they should benefit from very different moviegoing audiences.
Adults will flock to see undercover cops Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum hang out with college spring-breakers in the R-rated “22 Jump Street,” while families will scurry to check out a hapless Viking and his fire-breathing friend in the PG-rated “How to Train Your Dragon 2.”
If 22 Jump Street beats How To Train Your Dragon 2, I’m going to rage quit.
