Holy Crap. Shrek Just Crushed the Box Office.

shrek.jpgWow. Apparently the big green guy and the planet’s imminent destruction just combined to set an all time weekend box office record. Shrek remains at #1 with $92 million over the four day weekend to push it’s total take to just a hair less than $257 mil in less than two weeks of release. That’s an insane amount of money. Shrek’s take dropped only 13% from last week which is pretty much nothing … big films routinely drop 30-40% after the first week even if reviews and word of mouth are positive. The Day After Tomorrow, meanwhile, pulled in an impressive $86 mil which means the two top films alone pulled in $178 million in the US alone. Madness, I say.

Meanwhile in the world of small, anti-coporate film making Super Size Me is still holding strong to the #10 spot with the film spreading onto another 49 screens. Not much by Shrek standards but mighty impressive for a little documentary by an unknown film maker.

  1. Hi dave (big bald) here.

    First to all Imagine ‘Dat! users our site was down over the weekend- sorry. This means my email was too.

    The appropriate parties have been sacked.

    Reviews of Shrek 2 and Supersize me can both be found at http://www.imaginedat.net and surprisingly I think the two films have a lot in common thematically.

    Read little ones read and post here on the movie blog like there’s no day after tommorow ( which is also reviewed on the site.

    Oh….need i mention


    Bald is beautiful.
