Box Office Numbers for Friday, April 2, 2010: $26.06M for Clash of the Titans, $12.15M for ‘Tyler Perry’

Update: Chart updated with the final actual numbers.

Original article follows below.

Warner Brothers’ heavily promoted 3D feature Clash of the Titans from director Louis Leterrier debuted in a strong first place Friday, grossing an estimated $26.36 million from 3,777 theaters. Including Thursday night sneaks, the film is at an estimated $29.015 million (Note: Thursday night screenings accounted for $2.655 million of the film’s gross and Thursday night / Friday midnight screenings accounted for $4.2 million of the film’s gross).

Also opening strong yesterday was Tyler Perry’s latest ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’, which opened in second place with an estimated $12.35 million from 2,155 theaters for a robust per theater average of $5,731. This will be Perry’s 2nd or 3rd best performing film of his career.

Third place went to DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon, which fell just 8.8% from last Friday for an estimated $11.05 million (est. $74.176 million domestic cume). Rounding out the top five were The Last Song (est. $7.1M / $16.488M cume) and Alice in Wonderland (est. $3.0M / $304.526M cume). Click over the jump for the daily chart and more analysis.

Predicting out the rest of the weekend, I see Clash of the Titans finishing out with around $62-$68 million followed by ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’ finishing in 2nd with somewhere in the neighborhood of $28-31 million, How to Train Your Dragon to take 3rd place with somewhere between $25-28 million and The Last Song to take between $16-18 million for the 3-day and between $25-27 million for the 5-day.
