CLASH OF THE TITANS, despite an overall mixed reception from critics, has managed to knock kids’ animated fantasy film HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON off of the top spot at the box office over the weekend. The new sword and sandal epic that we recently reviewed has grossed $61.4 million so far (slightly under analysis’ predictions) with Tyler Perry’s relationship drama sequel WHY DID I GET MARRIED TOO coming in at second place.

Both these new releases pushed HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON back down to third place, while tween drama THE LAST SONG and ALICE IN WONDERLAND took forth and fifth place respectably. A pretty strong opening for CLASH then, but we’ll have to see how it fairs by the end of the week with new releases such as Steve Carell and Tina Fey starring comedy, DATE NIGHT vying for the top spot.
