Hollywood action picture "Clash of the Titans" successfully entered the domestic box office last week, surpassing weekly competition to become the most-watched movie during the first week of April, according to estimates on Monday.

The Korean Box Office System (KOBIS) revealed that the mythical film sold 927,722 tickets during the weekend of April 2 to 4, beating out last week's winner "Green Zone" to claim the No. 1 spot.

"Titans", helmed by French director Louis Leterrier, is about the story of the fight between man and the gods set in the Greek city of Argos. It stars famed actors Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes.

Korean heist film "Revolver Gangsters' Gang", starring veteran actresses Na Moon-hee, Kim Soo-mi and Kim Hye-ok, maintained its position at second with 140,414 admissions, while war drama "Green Zone" fell two slots from last week to come in third with 103,551 viewers.

Meanwhile, mystery thriller "Shutter Island" dropped a spot to fourth with 89,153 tickets sold and fantasy flick "Alice in Wonderland" followed sequentially with 46,668 admits, respectively.

Other movies in the top 10 were "The Day Before", "Secret Love", "Secret Reunion", "Tears of the Amazon" and "Solomon Kane".
