Welcome to the new era of movie marketing, where studios aren't just content to show you a couple of trailers and hope you'll show up. Nope, they will pour on the clips, TV spots and in this case, serve up an opening chunk of the movie, all in the hopes that through sheer advertising exhaustion (or genuine interest) you will show up and fork over some cash for tickets and popcorn. So it goes for "How To Train Your Dragon 2."

How To Train Your Dragon 2

Welcome to the new era of movie marketing, where studios aren't just content to show you a couple of trailers and hope you'll show up. Nope, they will pour on the clips, TV spots and in this case, serve up an opening chunk of the movie, all in the hopes that through sheer advertising exhaustion (or genuine interest) you will show up and fork over some cash for tickets and popcorn. So it goes for "How To Train Your Dragon 2."

DreamWorks has thrown the first five minutes of the film online, with Jay Baruchel's distinctly voiced Hiccup introducing viewers to the sequel and cluing them in on what has happened since 2010. Picking up five years after the first movie, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, T.J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Cate Blanchett, Kit Harington and Djimon Hounsou are among those joining in this latest adventure that finds Hiccup and Toothless now racing through the sky, until everything changes when they find ice cave in uncharted territory.

Basically, you'll be there on June 13th (probably with kids in tow) if you liked the first movie. Watch below along with a batch of new images from the movie.
