Box Score: Shrek Forever After opens happily at number one.



In all likelihood living up to its billing as 'The Final Chapter', Shrek Forever After [SHRK4] debuted with an estimated $71.25 million.  Even with 3D accounting for 61% of the revenue, Shrek Forever After grossed 42% less than the $121.6 million debut of Shrek the Third in 2007.

After two weeks at the top spot, Iron Man 2 [IRNM2] dropped to second with $26.6 million.  The superhero sequel has zapped $251.3 million.

Robin Hood [RBNHD] finished third with $18.7 million, dropping 48% in its sophomore session.  The legendary archer has gathered $66.1 million.

Letters of Juliet [LJULT] declined just 33% in its second weekend to $9.1 million for fourth place.  The romance has booked $27.4 million.

MacGruber [MGRUB] failed to defuse the audience and bombed with just $4.1 million. Despite heavy marketing, the 'SNL' character never gained wide awareness.

Opening in limited release of 207 theaters, Kites [KITES] charted tenth overall with $0.95 million.
