Box Office: 'Clash of the Titans,' Tyler Perry unseat 'Dragon'
Another new film, the sequel "Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too?," came in second with $30.2 million.
Both films toppled the Paramount animated "How to Train Your Dragon" from the top spot it held the previous week. At No. 3, it earned a respectable $29.2 million over the weekend, which brings its domestic total to $92.3 million.
