Shrek Breaks His Own Box Office Records

While it's no "biggest opening weekend in box office history" like Spider-Man 3's was, Shrek did well for himself when Shrek the Third opened this weekend and raked in a whopping $122 million. This is the third-biggest opening in movie history, and the biggest opening for an animated film. It looks like kids still rule when it comes to box office hits, regardless of the so-so reviews the movie has received.

Spidey did well for himself as well, bringing in a cool $28.5 million, while horror flick 28 Weeks Later came in third place with just over $5 million. Disturbia continued to hold its own at 4th place while Georgia Rule followed behind, drawing in $3.49 million.

Shrek shouldn't get too comfy, however, since Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opens this Memorial Day weekend, and it's likely to swab the deck with the giant green ogre. It's also likely to feature many more pirate-y puns like "swab the deck." Arrrrrre you ready for it?
