Box Office Weekend:Shrek vs McGruber UPDATE





Well as you can see MCGUBER is bombing big time, as of Fridays estimates. If it keeps up it will be a huge bomb. Mean while SHREK 4 is on to a 70 million weekend, perhaps not as welcome as the other movies in the series. Maybe people are finally getting tired of the green guy?

UPDATE:1. Shrek Forever After 3D (DWA/Par) NEW [4,359 Theaters]
Friday $20M, Estimated Weekend $70M
2. Iron Man 2 (Marvel/Paramount) Week 3 [4,177 Theaters]
Friday $7.8M, Estimated Weekend $27M, Estimated Cume $251M
3. Robin Hood (Universal) Week 2 [3,505 Theaters]
Friday $5.5M (-57%), Estimated Weekend $17M, Estimated Cume $54M
4. Letters To Juliet (Summit) Week 2 [2,975 Theaters]
Friday $3M (-40%), Estimated Weekend $9.5M, Estimated Cume $22M
5. MacGruber (Rogue/Universal) NEW [2,551 Theaters]
Friday $1.6M, Estimated Weekend $4.5M
6. Just Wright (Fox Searchlight/Fox) Week 2 [1,831 Theaters]
Friday $1.3M, Estimated Weekend $4M, Estimated Cume $12.3M
7. Date Night (Fox) Week 7 [1,869 Theaters]
Friday $1M, Estimated Weekend $3M, Estimated Cume $90M

It's the kiddies vs the adults this weekend as SHREK 4 and MCGRUBER go at it. Since MCGRUBER is a R rated film, it will probably come in second if it can muscle past IRON MAN 2. Both films have gotten good to average reviews so everyone will be out in force this weekend.

    Shrek Forever After     Paramount (DreamWorks)     4,359   
    MacGruber     Universal     2,551
