$117.2 M for ‘Titans’ in Two Weeks

on April 16, 2010 by Daniel Garris

In what should be its last day at the top of the domestic box office, Warner's Clash of the Titans continued to lead on Thursday with $1.61 million. 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. Dragon finished in third for the week with $30.08 million. That was down only 34 percent from the previous week and brings the film's three-week total to $138.62 million. How to Train Your Dragon currently trails the pace of last year's Monsters vs. Aliens by 7.5 percent.

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? grossed $0.482 million to remain in fourth. The latest Tyler Perry film from Lionsgate was up 2 percent from Wednesday, but still down a very sharp 68 percent from last Thursday. Married Too finished in fourth place for the week with $13.19 million. That was down 65 percent from the film's opening week performance and brings the film's 14-day total to $50.70 million.

MGM's Hot Tub Time Machine rounded out the day's unchanged top five with $0.472 million. The R-rated comedy starring John Cusack was up 2 percent from Wednesday and down a respectable 47 percent from last Thursday. Hot Tub Time Machine held up well over the week, as it was down 37 percent from the previous week. The film's three-week total stands at $38.96 million.
