Box Office Review: Still Shrek? WTF???
For the third week in a row, the tired Shrek franchise managed to place its latest entrant atop the weekend box office race. The lame Shrek Forever After raked in $25.3M ($183M) to easily top the hilarious newcomer Get Him to the Greek ($17.4M) and the lame Killers ($16.1M). The unnecessary Prince of Persia ($13.9M | $59.4M) and the dreadful Sex and the City 2: More Evil Cunts ($12.6M | $73.4M) rounded out the top 5.
Marmaduke ($11.3M) was a flop in its opening frame. Iron Man 2 is still printing money ($7.7M | $291.2M), while Splice won't be doing that for much longer ($7.4M). The decent Robin Hood ($5.1M | $94.2M) and the resilient Letters to Juliet ($3M | $43.3M) rounded out the top 10. In limited release, Cropsey had a mild debut ($6500 per theater) and shouldn't last in theaters too terribly long.
