Warner's 3D fantasy remake was up 1 percent from Wednesday and down 60 percent from last Thursday. Titans finished in first place for the week with $33.62 million. That was down 58 percent from last week and outpaced Fox's Date Night by $1.67 million for the frame. Clash of the Titans has grossed $117.21 million through 14 days, placing the film 17 percent behind the pace of 2007's 300. At its current rate Clash of the Titans is on pace for a final domestic gross in the neighborhood of $155 million to $160 million.
Date Night gained a bit of ground on Clash of the Titans yesterday, but still had to settle for second. The PG-13 comedy from Fox starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey grossed $1.57 million, which was up 3 percent over Wednesday and only $39,161 behind Titans for the day. Date Night finished in second place for the week with a respectable $31.95 million. That was on the low end of pre-release expectations, but places the film a comfortable 45 percent ahead of the first week performance of 2008's Baby Mama.
Paramount's How to Train Your Dragon remained in third with $1.26 million. The computer animated film from DreamWorks was up 8 percent from Wednesday, which represented the day's best daily percentage increase among wide releases.
