Date Night fought hard but just fell short of toppling now two-week champ Clash of The Titans (3-D... but not really!) on this weekend's Box Office tally.  The Fox film earned $25.2 million,  being edged out by Titans, which brought in $26.3 million.  Date Night was produced for a $50 million budget and should have no difficulty recouping that amount in a week or two.  Read my review of the hilarious comedy here.

The feverish buzz for Disney's How to Train Your Dragon continues to trickle its way into homes across North America and it came a resilient third with $24.8 million it its third week of release.  If you haven't had a chance to see this classic, please hurry and do yourself a favour.  It's honestly not just for kids.

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too starring pop star Janet Jackson placed a distant fourth compared to the top three films, with $11 million in its second week, followed closely by another pop star headlined drama film, The Last Song starring Miley Cyrus.  To date, the film has banked $40 million, quadrupling what it cost to make.

The only other debut this week was Christian-themed Letters to God which brought in $1.3 million this weekend in tenth spot.

Expect comedy Sony Screen Gems' Death at a Funeral starring Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, James Marsden and Luke Wilson to debut big next weekend.
