'Titans' and 'Date Night' Running Close

on April 10, 2010 by Phil Contrino

According to BOXOFFICE.com's Early Weekend Estimates, it looks as though Clash of the Titans will edge past Date Night in order to claim the #1 spot for the second weekend in a row. Titans made $8.4 million on Friday, while Date Night brought in $9.3 million. Titans will likely gain ground on Saturday and then pull ahead for the weekend.

How to Train Your Dragon is holding up quite well. The Paramount release tacked on another $26 million during its third weekend in theaters. Even though the animated flick had a slightly underwhelming opening it is showing some serious legs.

As expected, Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? will suffer a steep drop this weekend. Perry's films tend to be heavily front-loaded and this sequel is no exception.

The Last Song will maintain a solid chunk of its audience during its sophomore frame. Audiences are obviously accepting Miley Cyrus outside of her Hannah Montana character.

Letters to God looks to be on pace for a modest $1.25 million debut.

Check back tomorrow for studio weekend estimates.
