Box Office Results: Shrek Forever After Crushes Iron Man 2
05.23.10 by REELZ
|Shrek Forever After
||Shrek 4 opens far smaller than 3 (and 2, too) but still dominates.
|Iron Man 2
||Sequel shoots past $200M mark and into 2nd place for 2010 (behind Alice in Wonderland).
||This movie will struggle mightily to recoup the $200M budget.
|Letters to Juliet
||Rom-com has small Week 2 dropoff.
||Queen Latifah vehicle fades but still beats MacGruber.
Bomb of the Week: One word: MacGruber. With about a $4M take, it earned less in its first weekend than the latest SNL movie, 2000's Ladies Man. Our team of interns is investigating, but a mere $1,607/screen average for a wide release's opening weekend has to be the worst of 2010.
