How-to-Train-Your-Dragon-2-Djimon-Hounsou-Kit-Harington

How to Train Your Dragon was not only a great and highly entertaining film that did huge worldwide box office numbers, but it was one of the best uses of 3D that I’ve seen in the cinema.  Needless to day, I was excited to see the sequel, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and it did not disappoint.  Five years have passed since the heroic young Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) befriended a dragon named Toothless that led the residents of Berk to live side-by-side in peace with the fire-breathers.  Hiccup now has the respect of his father, Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), the love of his girlfriend Astrid (America Ferrera) and has discovered his long-lost mother (Cate Blanchett), but the power-hungry Drago Bludvist (Djimon Hounsou) is threatening everything.  For more on the film, read Matt’s review.

At the recent L.A. press day, Collider had the opportunity to chat with Djimon Hounsou and Kit Harington, who are both new to the popular franchise.  During the exclusive interview, they talked about what makes their more villainous characters the hero of their own story, and how much the film changed from what they were first told to what we see on screen.  Kit Harington also talked about what it’s like to be a part of Game of Thrones, which recently became the most watched show in HBO’s history, while Djimon Hounsou talked about what fans can get excited about with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which he hasn’t actually seen yet.  Watch the video after the jump.
