Box Office Breakdown: Titans Disappoints Date Night

Clash of the Titans

Looks like Sunday wasn’t a great day for a .

Despite early predictions that the Steve Carell/Tina Fey laugher would end the weekend with a $27.1 million take and a first place finish, the movie wound up falling slightly short. When the final numbers were turned in, the Shawn Levy-directed comedy had raked in just $25.2 million in ticket sales - positioning it right between and How to Train Your Dragon.

Although Date Night did not come close to surpassing Carell’s personal best (Get Smart opened to $38.7 million in 2008), it did top Fey’s previous high (Baby Mama‘s $17.4 million from 2008).

Meanwhile, the only other entry in this weekend’s Top 10 was a movie that only opened in 897 theaters. - which only grossed $1.1 million and a $1,228 per screen average - helped push Shutter Island and She’s Out of My League off the charts.
