Shrek Forever After Beats Sex and the City 2 and Prince of Persia at the Box Office

Box Office: Sex and the City Is No Match for Shrek

UPDATE: According to estimates through the holiday, Prince of Persia actually bested Sex and the City 2, taking in $37.8 and $37.1 million, respectively.

Forget Sex and the City 2 versus Prince of Persia. Despite the hype surrounding both of those films, this Memorial Day weekend belonged to Shrek Forever After. All together now: Huh?!

The family film continued its hold on the top spot at the box office for a second week with $43.3 million. That leaves Sex and the City 2 in second place with $32.2 million (a number that fell short of insiders' estimates); Jake Gyllenhaal's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time came in third with $30.1 million. Something to keep in mind, however: SATC opened on Wednesday at midnight, which means if they had counted Thursday's sales as part of the weekend total, the ladies may just have been able to eke out a first place finish.

Iron Man 2 took fourth with $16 million and Robin Hood rounded out the top five with $10.3 million.

You really can't compete with a family film. Its family film (where the whole family can go see) versus a 'Rated R' film, with adult audiences only. I'm surprised Prince of Persia didn't land on #1...

Well, the great thing about Shrek movie is (For me personally), I can bring the whole family (husband and kid), everyone loves it (hey, both hub and I can actually LOL during the movie alongside our kid for another reason completely). While it's only me going to SATC2 and perhaps a date night with hub will get us to watch the Prince of Persia, but my husband doesn't like that type of game-fantasy-action type of movie (he's more into horror, thriller type).
