‘Clash of the Titans’ #1 on Wednesday

on April 08, 2010 by Daniel Garris

Clash of the Titans remained at the top of the box office on Wednesday with $4.22 million. Warner's 3D fantasy remake was down 16 percent from Tuesday, which represented an average daily hold for the day among current wide releases. Clash of the Titans has grossed $79.53 million through six days of release. That is in line with the lower end of pre-release expectations and places the film 12.5 percent behind the pace of 2007's 300. Clash of the Titans will reach the $80 million mark today and will zoom past the $100 million mark over the weekend.

Paramount's How to Train Your Dragon remained in second place with $3.49 million. The 3D computer animated film from DreamWorks continues to hold up very nicely this week as it was down 9 percent from Tuesday and down 23 percent from last Wednesday. How to Train Your Dragon has grossed $104.73 million in 13 days of release and is in great shape to experience another excellent hold over the weekend, especially with no new family films entering the marketplace.

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? finished in third place with $1.62 million. The sequel from Lionsgate was down 25 percent from Tuesday, which was easily the day's sharpest daily decline among wide releases. Perry's films are typically very front-loaded towards their opening weekend performances, and Married Too isn't proving to be an exception. With that said, Why Did I Get Married Too? has already grossed an impressive $36.02 million in six days.

Disney's The Last Song held steady in fourth with $1.43 million. The Miley Cyrus vehicle was down 17 percent from Tuesday and down a sharp, but understandable 72 percent from last Wednesday's opening day performance. The Last Song topped the $30 million mark yesterday and has now grossed $30.90 million in eight days. Look for The Last Song to reach the $40 million mark by the end of the upcoming weekend.

Alice in Wonderland rounded out the day's unchanged top five with $0.87 million. While the 3D blockbuster from Disney was down only 9 percent from Tuesday, it was down 54 percent from last Wednesday. Alice in Wonderland has clearly taken a hit from losing 3D screens to both How to Train Your Dragon and Clash of the Titans, but could begin to hold up better once again this weekend.
