In Shrek Forever After, otherwise known as Shrek: The Final Chapter, Shrek (Mike Myers) learns what life is like if he had never been born, turning his world completely upside down. While Fiona (Cameron Diaz) is now a warrior princess leading an ogre revolution and Donkey (Eddie Murphy) remaining his unchanged, annoying self, it's Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) that sees the biggest change, turning from a suave adventurer to one big, pampered kitty. Director Mike Mitchell explained why they made the choice at the press junket last weekend. see what he said and the featurette >> Posted 05.21.10 by Ryan
Shrek Forever After — now ominously known as Shrek: The Final Chapter — brings to a close the movie franchise that started in 1998. Or does it? The answer to that question is among top items we have to report from the press event with cast and producers. We've rounded up our favorites moments, which also include finding out how Jon Hamm almost almost ruined the movie and what inside joke made it to the big screen.See Top 10 Highlights of the Shrek Forever After Press Junket >> Posted 05.20.10 by reelz
DreamWorks has unveiled two new teaser posters for Shrek Forever After, billed as "The Final Chapter" in the Shrek series. Both posters employ a clever turn of phrase, with one showing Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers) in a predicament and the other spotlighting Shrek's new adversary, Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn).
When DreamWorks first introduced us to Shrek back in 2001, the big green curmudgeon was perfectly content to stay in his swamp being an ogre and doing ogre-type stuff. It took the kindness of the fair Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), who loved him for who he was on the inside, to soften his tough exterior. In the latest movie, with a plot reminiscent of the classic movie It's a Wonderful Life, Shrek gets a taste of what his life would be like if he never met Fiona. Here's the official synopsis:
After challenging an evil dragon, rescuing a beautiful princess and saving your in-laws' kingdom, what's an ogre to do? Well, if you're Shrek, you suddenly wind up a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he used to, a reluctant Shrek now agrees to autograph pitch forks. What's happened to this ogre's roar? Longing for the days when he felt like a “real ogre,” Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona have never met. Now, it's up to Shrek to undo all he's done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one True Love.
Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas also return as the voices of Donkey and Puss in Boots, respectively. Posted 03.26.10 by BrentJS
That's Box Office, by the way (you weirdo). Posted 05.18.07 by reelz
Speculation on the potential Box Office for Shrek the Third has been all over the place, from as low as $90 million (yes, that's actually low these days for a blockbuster) to as high as $120 (dangerously close to Spidey 3 numbers).
As reviews surfaced this week, the big green smelly guy has taken a critical pummeling. Rotten Tomatoes scores Shrek the Third a lowly 45% splat (compared to and 88% certified fresh for Shrek 2) and his Metacritic score is a failing 57 out of 100. Our own Thomas Leupp scored Shrek the Third a 6 out of 10.
So what do you think the Ogre will take in at megaplexes this weekend? Are you planning to see it? Chime in on the comments section of the Shrek the Third detail page where you'll also find photos, trailers and Thomas Leupp's 60-second video review.
