'Dragon' wings it back to No. 1 with $15 million

"How to Train Your Dragon" continues to breathe fire at the box office, while newer releases are mostly blowing smoke.

The animated adventure took in $15 million to reclaim the No. 1 spot a month after its debut. "How to Dragon Your Dragon" opened in first place in late March, then dropped back into the pack. But it has held up strongly and climbed to the top again amid a flurry of so-so new releases.

Premiering at No. 2 with $12.3 million is Jennifer Lopez's romantic comedy "The Back-up Plan."

Among the weekend's other newcomers, the action flick "The Losers" debuted at No. 4 with $9.6 million.

Disney's nature film "Oceans" had a solid opening for a documentary, coming in at No. 8 with $6 million.
