In New York City, a case of mistaken identity turns a bored married couple's attempt at a glamorous and romantic evening into something more thrilling and dangerous.
Date Night, the comedy starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey, was the easy winner on the home video charts this week with a clean sweep, topping the DVD sales, rentals and Blu-ray sales charts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
New release Death at a Funeral finished in second place on all three charts and last week's triple-winner Kick-Ass was knocked down to third place on all charts as well. It was a distant second place for Death at a Funeral, though, as it was reported that the Chris Rock comedy only sold 47% as many units as Date Night sold, during the week ending August 15.Read More

It was Date Night at the box office this weekend as the new Steve Carell/Tina Fey comedy took the top spot in its opening weekend. The film, directed Night at the Museum's Shawn Levy, premiered in 3,374 theaters and earned $8,032 per theater for a opening weekend gross of around $27.1 million, just about half of it's purported $55 million production budget. Falling 56.1%, as well as one spot back on the charts from last week was the 3D remake of the classic '80s Greek-mythology film Clash of the Titans starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes. The film, which actually added 25 theaters from the previous week was seen in roughly 3,802 theaters and earned about $7,069 per theater for a second weekend total of $26.8 million. That brings the films total gross in just two weeks to $110.4 million, just shy of earning back its purported $125 million production budget.
Moving up one spot from last week to number three is the animated film that just won't quit, How to Train Your Dragon starring Gerard Butler, Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Craig Ferguson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jonah Hill and Kristen Wiig. Despite loosing 53 theaters from the previous week, the film was still seen in over 4,000 theaters and earned $6,326 per theater for an additional $25.3 million in it's third week. That brings the film's total gross to around $133.8 million, still short of recouping their initial $165 million production budget. Slipping one spot back to number four from last week and falling 62.4% from the previous week was the sequel to Tyler Perry's 2007 hit film Why Did I Get Married?, Why Did I Get Married Too? starring the popular filmmaker, Janet Jackson and Jill Scott. The film was seen in 2,155 theaters and earned $5,104 per theater for an additional $11 million this weekend, bringing it's total gross to around $48.5 million in just two weeks, which is quite a profit considering the film's $20 million budget. Rounding off the top five this week is international phenomenon Miley Cyrus's coming of age film, The Last Song, based on the forthcoming novel by Nicholas Sparks author of The Notebook. Although the film dropped 37.5% from the previous week, it still managed to add one new theater for a total of 2,674 and earned $3,740 in each for a total of $10 million in its second week. That brings it's total gross to around $42 million, which is almost double of its $20 million production cost.Read More
