The 3-D epic movie makes a strong debut by creating a new Easter record, forcing 'How to Train Your Dragon' to drop its triumphant title.

"" has named itself the new ruler at North American Box Office chart. Opened wide in U.S. theaters on April 2, the epic movie which is also available in 3-D version has raked in $61.2 million over the weekend.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the amount collected by the -starring film represents a new Easter weekend record. The previous record was held by 2006 "" with $40.2 million.

Unfortunately, the good Box Office result is not in line with the film's review. Cinemascore only gives "Clash of the Titans" a weak B score, which will likely show its effect on the movie's lower position at the chart last week.

On the third position there is former champion "" which drops 33.7% on ticket sales. The DreamWorks 3-D animation only pulls in $29 million on its second weekend, making a total $92.1 million domestic revenue.

Meanwhile, another newcomer "" manages to enter the chart on the fourth place. The -starring flick earns $16 million. It is then followed by "", which drops 3 spots from last week position with an additional $8.2 million.
