In a weekend that I suspected would be dominated by women dreaming of a more glamourous life, we still ended up with an ugly ogre on top. Remember the Squash.
Shrek leads the weekend with a healthy lead over Sex and the City 2 taking the top spot as the Bruckheimer Persian Epic picks up the scraps.
Boxoffice Mojo gives us the stats:
Shrek Forever After – $43,405,000 – 2wks
Sex and the City 2 – $31,145,000 – Opening
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time – $30,100,000 – Opening
Iron Man 2 – $16,336,000 – 4wks
Robin Hood – $10,305,000 – 3wks
I really didn’t expect Sex and the City 2 to only get the #2 spot. I figured for sure it was going to dominate, but Shrek pulled out ahead of the race.
Iron Man 2 and Robin Hood area also hanging on to their Top 5 spots. And way down there in 10th place How to Train Your Dragon adds another million to its long running tally.
