To no one's surprise, the unnecessary re-make of Clash of the Titans easily claimed the box office crown this weekend thanks to America's pathetic embrace of bad 3-D. The crappy reboot hauled in $61.4M ($64M) to easily top the equally mediocre Tyler Perry's Why Do I Keep Making Bad Movies ($30.1M). The fantastic How To Train Your Dragon claimed $29.2M worth of treasure to top Miley Cyrus' pointless shit-fest The Last Song ($16.2M | $25.5M). The solidly entertaining Alice in Wonderland ($8.2M | $309.7M) rounded out the top 5.

Amazingly, the hilarious Hot Tub Time Machine has failed to find an audience ($8M | $27.8M). Even more amazing, The Bounty Hunter is actually filling theaters ($6.2M | $48.9M). The okay Diary of a Wimpy Kid ($5.5M | $46.2M), the bleh She's Out of My League ($1.4M | $28.6M) and the solid Shutter Island ($1.4M | $123.4M) rounded out the top 10. In limited release, Breaking Upwards opened well ($15,300 per theater) while Don McKay ($9400), The Thorn in the Heart ($6100) and The Greatest ($4625) had decent starts.
