LOS ANGELES, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon 2 continues to breathe fire into the global box office as it officially crossed the $600,000,000 mark on Labor Day. A record-breaking opening in China coupled with phenomenal success in territories around the world have catapulted Dragon 2 to become the highest grossing animated film of the year and one of the top ten grossing films of the year in any genre.
