Box Office Numbers for Friday, April 9, 2010: Date Night 1st with $9.2M, followed by ‘Clash’ ($8.3M) and ‘Dragon’ ($7.1M) [UPDATE]

Update: Click over the jump for an updated chart with the final actual data.

Original article follows below

The Steve Carell / Tina Fey comedy Date Night took first place with an estimated $9.3 million from 3,374 theaters, coming in a big higher than initial expectations.  The film out-grossed last week’s #1 Clash of the Titans which took in an estimated $8.435 million from 3,802 theaters (est. $92.028 cume). Finishing in third place was How to Train Your Dragon which posted a solid estimated $7.1 million (est. $115.641M cume).

That sets up for a three-way race to the top for the weekend.  All three films look headed to finish the weekend with between $25-28 million. After a slightly weaker than expected opening weekend, ‘Dragon’ has rebounded nicely and will have a good shot at beating last year’s Monsters vs. Aliens despite the significantly weaker start.

Rounding out the top five were The Last Song (est. $3.6M / $36.023M cume) and Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too? (est. $3.5M / $41.02M cume). Click over the jump for the daily chart.

Box Office Numbers for Monday, April 5, 2010: Clash of the Titans still 1st ($6.4M), but ‘Dragon’ closes gap ($5.3M)

Clash of the Titans took first place, but just barely.  The Louis Leterrier-directed 3D remake was down 53.7% on Monday to $6.393 million($70.283M cume), narrowly beating How to Train Your Dragon which fell just 23.4% from Sunday to $5.286M (97.422M cume). If that discrepancy in audience loss continues, ‘Dragon’ has a shot at taking the top spot before the weekend, although probably not until later in the week (perhaps Wednesday or Thursday).

Rounding out the top five were Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too? ($2.963M / $32.253M cume),  The Last Song ($2.338M / $27.733M cume) and Alice in Wonderland ($1.232M / $310.966M cume). Click over the jump for the daily chart.

Update: Article and chart updated with the final actual numbers.

Warner Brothers’ 3D Clash of the Titans got off to a record start, grossing $61.235 million over the 3-day Easter weekend (eclipsing the previous Easter record of $40.2M set by 2006’s Scary Movie 4). Including Thursday night sneaks — $2.655M — the film has grossed $63.890 million.

The Friday to Sunday breakdown for ‘Clash’ went as follows: $26.061M on Friday, -18% on Saturday to $21.361M and down -35.3% on Sunday to $13.813 million.

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.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Will Be Released in 3D; Clash of the Titans Likely 3D (Release pushed to April 2nd)

Warner Brothers will release the next two ‘Harry Potter’ films in 3D. According to THR’s Heat Vision Blog, WB’s tests of converting Clash of the Titans to 3D have gone so well that studio execs have decided to not only release Clash of the Titans in 3D, but also the two-part Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 3D.

Cost is relatively minor for the process, with each conversion expected to cost $5 million (so $10M between the two), although WB has offerred to pay for the cost of 3D glasses (an additional $5M each).

Clash of the Titans Won’t Be 3D + Score Details

In an interview with MTV, Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier confirmed that they were looking into doing the film in 3D — first brought to light by star Sam Worthington — but says that time constraints ultimately forced them to abandon the conversion…at least for its theatrical release:

“We tried [to do 3-D for ‘Clash’].’ We tried hard. We just won’t have time,” Leterrier explained. “Maybe we possibly can re-release it in 3-D.”

“Because it was Sam Worthington, I could hear all these 3-D stories from ‘Avatar.’ And James Cameron was calling often, and I was like ‘Guys, I’m doing the best i can with [the two dimensions] I’ve got!’ So if we ever get to do [‘Clash’] in 3-D, that would be fantastic. But it’ll never be as good as James Cameron’s stereoscopic 3-D.”

Leterrier also addressed rumors about Muse being on the soundtrack.
