Date Night Misses Its Date With Victory

Not only didn't Date Night win the weekend box-office race as 20th Century Fox had estimated on Sunday, it didn't even come close. The actual winner was Warner Bros.' Clash of the Titans , which finished with $26.7 million, well above the final take for Date Night , which came in at $25.2 million, just edging out DreamWorks's How to Train Your Dragon, which recorded a final gross of $24.9 million to bring its three-week total to $133.4 million. What had appeared to be a neck-and-neck race for fourth place after the estimates were announced on Sunday didn't work out that way either. Why Did I Get Married Too? ended up with $11 million, just as Lionsgate had predicted, but Disney The Last Song , starring Miley Cyrus, fell to $9.83 million in its second week. Overall, ticket sales for the weekend came to $119.3 million, down 5.1 percent from $125.8 million last year.
