Sam Worthington's Clash Of The Titans has topped the US box office.

The remake of the 1981 film, set in the world of ancient Greek gods, debuted at No 1 with 61.2 million dollars.

Released by Warner Bros, the movie features Avatar star Sam as demigod hero Perseus and Liam Neeson as his dad, Zeus, king of the Olympian deities.

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? opened at No 2 with 29.2 million.

The previous weekend's top movie, DreamWorks Animation's Viking adventure How To Train Your Dragon, ran a close third with 29 million dollars.

Miley Cyrus' teen drama The Last Song premiered at No 4 with 16 million. The Disney release raised its total to 25.6 million dollars since opening on Wednesday.

Written by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks specifically for the Hannah Montana star, the movie casts Miley as a sullen teen spending the summer with her estranged father.

With 8.2 million, Disney's Alice In Wonderland - starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter - came in fifth for the weekend, raising its domestic total to 309.8 million and its worldwide haul to 722 million dollars.
