You’ve Got B.O.: ‘Shrek’ Goes Out On Top

by | May 24, 2010 at 7:57 AM | The Movies

Shrek Forever After, supposedly the final chapter in the series, scored a big $71 million take at the box office to go out on top, although this fourth installment’s first weekend take is far lower than the previous two films managed ($108 million and $121.6 million, for the second and third films, respectively, the latter of which is still the record-holder for largest opening ever for an animated film). The SNL flick MacGruber, however, bombed rather harshly with only $4.1 million and a sixth place finish.

2. Iron Man 2 – $26.6m
