The fantasy adventure Clash of the Titans is poised to reign again, maintaining its grip on the US box office for a second weekend after beating the Easter weekend record.



With the epic adventure opening in 17 more countries around the world - the same number that released it last week - the 3D film is ready to rise above its rivals, the animated kid's comedy How to Train a Dragon and the new action romantic-comedy Date Night.

Even with the typical drop of 30 percent in ticket sales expected during a second weekend, this blockbuster which took in $120 million, will be the top earner. As a 3D movie it would be hard to wrestle the No. 1 spot away from the Greek gods.

The suburban couple of Date Night, starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey, may survive their ordeal on screen but they are no match for the destroyer of the frightful Kraken. Date Night should come in second.
