Also opening strongly was Tyler Perry’s latest ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?, which took in a very solid $29.289 million from 2,155 theaters. The performance is Perry’s 3rd best opening weekend of his career (below the $41.0M opening of 2009’s ‘Madea Goes to Jail’ and the $30.0M opening of 2006’s ‘Madea’s Family Reunion’). Meanwhile Miley Cyrus’ The Last Song took in $16.007 million, good enough for fourth place and bringing its 5-day cume to $25.395 million.

Rounding out the top five was last week’s #1 How to Train Your Dragon, which fell a respectable 33.7% to third place with $29.01M ($92.136M domestic cume) and Alice in Wonderland took fifth place with $8.208M ($309.734M domestic cume). Click over the jump for the weekend chart.

Box Office Numbers for Monday, March 29, 2010

How to Train Your Dragon grossed $4.815 million on Monday ($48.546M domestic cume), down about 66% from Sunday. That’s actually a fairly solid number and even out-performs last year’s Monsters vs. Aliens which although it had a better opening weekend — $62.8M vs. $43.7M — had a weaker Sunday to Monday hold: -65.9% / $4.8M for ‘Dragon’ vs. -80.7% / $3.5M for “Monsters vs. Aliens”. That could be an indication that ‘Dragon’ will have better legs.  Then again there’s considerably more 3D competition this year compared to last what with three films competing for 3D audiences starting next week: “Clash of the Titans”, “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Alice in Wonderland”.

Rounding out the top five was Alice in Wonderland ($1.979M / $295.514M domestic cume) in second, Hot Tub Time Machine ($1.545M / $15.566M domestic cume) in third, Diary of a Wimpy Kid ($1.241M / $37.139M domestic cume) in fourth and The Bounty Hounter ($1.048M / $39.466M domestic cume) in fifth.
