The sequels have it: '22 Jump Street' and 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' top weekend box office

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - In a summertime battle of sequels, a pair of kooky cops beat out flying dragons for the top spot at the box office.

According to studio estimates Sunday, "22 Jump Street" debuted in first place with $60 million, with "How to Train Your Dragon 2" opening in second with $50 million.

The R-rated comedy "Jump Street" stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as bumbling undercover officers who pose as college students to bust a campus drug dealer. Hill also lends a voice to the animated "Dragon," which follows Hiccup and his dragon Toothless on an adventure where they discover hundreds of wild dragons.

A mix of fantasy, action and romance complete the top five: "Maleficent" claimed third place, followed by "Edge of Tomorrow" and "The Fault in Our Stars."
