'Dragon' and 'Kick-Ass' Have a Duel at Box Office
"How to Train Your Dragon" has once again soared high at North American Box Office. After furnishing the champion title to "Clash of the Titans" for two straight weeks, the animated movie manages to return to the top spot this weekend.
The DreamWorks' flick actually does not collect bigger revenue than last week and drops about 19.6% in ticket sales, according to studio estimates. But with an approximately $20 million, "How to Train Your Dragon" can lock the coveted place since "Clash of the Titans" only gains $15.8 million or 40.8% less than last week gross. The Sam Worthington-starring epic now drops to the fifth.
But the Jay Baruchel-starring movie is still not on the safe area because "Kick-Ass" follows it closely. Entering the chart on the second place on its debut weekend, the superhero movie pulls in an approximately $19.8 million, creating a small gap between the winner and the runner-up. This position can change when the final results come out on Monday afternoon, April 19.
Sitting on the third place is "Date Night" which grosses an estimated $17.3 million on its second weekend. Another newcomer "Death at a Funeral (2010)", meanwhile, makes a quite good impression as it manages to secure a slot among the top five. Raking in an approximately $17 million, the comedy lands at the fourth spot.
