In the end, it wasn’t even that close. Despite estimates all weekend that Clash of the Titans and Date Night were neck-and-neck for the top spot at the weekend box office, Clash claimed the top prize by a cool $1 million. Turns out Fox predictors had over-estimated their Sunday number for the Tina Fey, Steve Carell two-hander by as much as 9 percent. The film dropped off 49 percent Sunday, as opposed to 40 percent, as the studio predicted. Thus, Date Night finished the weekend at $25.2 million, while Clash earned $26.6 million for the three-day frame. That number represents a 57 percent drop for the weekend, a much smaller drop than Warner Bros. was predicting.
