Weekend Box Office - Kick-Ass Does Anything But image
UPDATE: The final numbers are in, and with $19.8 million to Dragon's $19.6 million, Kick-Ass is #1 for the weekend after all. Read more about it here.

Kick-Ass did anything but at the box office this weekend, banking only $19 million for a second place debut. With an unquestioned 'R' rating the film's shameless dive into gleefully gratuitous violence wasn't expected to make a lot of cash, but the fact that it couldn't break the $20 million didn't leave anyone at Lions Gate doing back flips.

In fact, the new entry couldn't even top four-weekend-old How To Train Your Dragon. The CG animated adventure soared back into the box office's top spot this weekend with just $20 million, the lowest number one total of the year so far.

The good news this weekend was the poor performance in the remake sector. The new take on Death At A Funeral took in only $17 million for fourth place. Meanwhile Clash of the Titans, which had been sitting at the number one spot for two weeks, dropped all the way to fifth place with $15 million.

Not that either movie is hurting for cash. Titans is already well in the black with $321 million world-wide against its $125 million budget and after only three days in theaters Death at a Funeral is only a few million short of matching it's modest $21 million budget.
