'Titans' tops weekend boxoffice

Giant scorpions and winged horses ruled the box office Sunday, as "Clash of the Titans" topped North American movie ticket sales, according to weekend estimates. Warner Bros' US$122 million retelling of the Perseus legendary earned US$61.4 million in its first weekend, according to box office tracker Exhibitor Relations.
In second place was the African-American melodrama "Why Did I Get Married Too?" by writer, director, and actor Tyler Perry, with US$30.2 million in receipts. The animated adventure "How to Train Your Dragon" was in third place, pulling in US$29.2 million, while the debut of the romantic Miley Cyrus movie, "The Last Song," was fourth with US$16.2 million.
Fifth place went to the live-action version of Lewis Carroll's children's classic "Alice in Wonderland" starring Johnny Depp including US$8.3 million this weekend. The 3-D wizardry kept time-bending jacuzzi users at bay, with the R-rated comedy "Hot Tub Time Machine" earning US$8 million for sixth place. That put it ahead of "Bounty Hunter," a comedy starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler, which came in seventh with a US$6.2 million take, and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," slipped three places to eighth place with US$5.5 million.
Ninth place went to the romantic comedy "She's Out of My League," in which a stunning beautiful woman and a dorky guy fall improbably in love, which earned US$1.46 million this weekend.
It came just ahead of Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" which was in 10th place, which also earned US$1.46 million.
