See The Opening Of How To Train Your Dragon 2

At WonderCon this past weekend, DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox brought out writer/director Dean DeBlois and actor Jay Baruchel to introduce How To Train Your Dragon 2. Then, to even more excitement from the crowd, the pair unveiled a cut-down, five-minute version of the film’s opening, which the company has now put online. 

 

The second (of a planned trilogy) Dragon outing takes place five years after the original. The island Vikings of Berk have well and truly adapted to life with dragons. People and giant creatures share their world happily and even indulge in crazy sports like dragon racing.

Our hero Hiccup (Baruchel), meanwhile, has matured – a little – and become restless, exploring the world with best friend and loyal dragon Toothless, mapping as they go. It’s on one of his missions that Hiccup stumbles upon a potential new threat and an important part of his life…

With most of the main cast returning for the sequel, How To Train Your Dragon 2 includes the voices of Jonah Hill, Gerard Butler, Kristen Wiig, T.J. Miller, America Ferrera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Craig Ferguson, with new recruits Cate Blanchett, Kit Harington and Djimon Hounsou. It’ll arrive in our cinemas on July 4.

I remember the first 5 - 10 minutes of The Dark Knight playing before another film and it worked so well because it's a superb opening to the film (the bank heist). Everyone wanted to watch the full movie immediately after the clip ended. However, the opening 5 minutes to How To Train Your Dr More
