Take that Kraken! Although the numbers were close, it looks like the warriors of Clash of the Titans were unable to trimuph over an awkward Date Night with comedian super-stars Tina Fey and Steve Carell. Surprisingly, How to Train Your Dragon (one of those quality animations that I was worried may have never reached its full potential… poor Bolt) which has been in theaters the longest, placed a close third behind the top two, making only $2 million less than Date Night and $1 million less than Clash of the Titans. Go dragons!
Another surprise was the small indie film Letters to God making it on the top ten list without any money or promotion. Go god! (hmmm, doesn’t have the same ring as dragons…)
