It's a photo finish weekend based on studio estimates: Date Night came in at $27.1 million, while Clash of the Titans was just $225,000 behind with $26.9 million, and How to Train Your Dragon was still in the mix with $25.4 million. With sizable showings from three movies, overall business was on the high end for mid-April, albeit down a touch from the same period last year. Each day of the weekend could end up having a different No. 1 movie: Date Night led Friday with $9.3 million, Clash of the Titans topped Saturday with $11.2 million, and, if studio projections pan out, How to Train Your Dragon capped Sunday with $7.8 million. Date Night's Friday performance has given it an edge for the weekend as a whole, but Clash could still pull this out because Date's Sunday projection was relatively more bullish than Clash's. As close as the two movies were, there have been closer photo finishes in the past. »
