Box Office Breakdown:  Shrek Seeing A Lot of Green

Shrek the Third

I believe somewhere out there Justin Timberlake is crediting himself for this…

Two weeks ago, Spider-Man 3 broke box office records for a debut weekend.  Now Shrek the Third gets the honor for ticket sales of an animated feature (beating the animated record established by Shrek 2).  The $121 million take is the third largest opening for any movie…right behind Spidey 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.

Of course in just seven days, I’m sure Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End will enter the picture to reclaim the title for its franchise.  Or at the very least, make the most money for a movie with a monkey in it..
