Weekend Estimates: Titans Sets New Easter Record

April 4th, 2010

Clash of the Titans continued the domination of 3-D movies at the box office this year with an impressive $61.4 million opening weekend, according to Warner Bros.' estimate released on Sunday. Among other things, that's by far the biggest opening weekend over Easter, topping the $40.2 million earned by Scary Movie 4 in 2006. 3-D movies have now topped the chart for ten out of the first fourteen weeks of 2010.

In second place, Why Did I Get Married Too? gave Tyler Perry one of his best opening weekends with an estimated $30.15 million, which is $9 million more than the debut weekend for the first movie in the theatrical incarnation of the franchise.

How to Train Your Dragon fell only 33% in its second weekend to earn about $29.2 million for Paramount. That keeps it on track for $150 million in total. The Last Song opened in 4th for Disney with $16.2 million.

In the lower reaches of the chart, Breaking Upwards made a robust debut for IFC Films with $16,300 in a single theater, enough to give it a shot at taking Per Theater honors this weekend.
