Well, that was quick.
A day after Miley Cyrus took the top box office spot with The Last Song‘s solid Wednesday debut, Clash of the Titans roared into theaters with an estimated $4.2 million Thursday night, making it the overwhelming favorite not just to win the holiday weekend, but to set a record in the process.
Aided by 3D screenings and starring all-time champ Avatar‘s Sam Worthington, Clash is projected to rake in as much as $70 million by the end of Sunday, making it Easter Weekend’s best ever performer.
Scary Movie managed to earn $40 million in 2000.
The latest Tyler Perry film, Why Did I Get Married Too, is the weekend’s other big release.
