FLOP POP FIZZLE, The Obligatory Weekend B.O. Report: ‘Shrek Forever After’ #1 Third Week In A Row

With no big new releases, Shrek Forever After easily took the top spot over a weak crop of new releases. Get Him To The Greek, a spin-off of Russell Brand‘s pansexual rock star character that he originated in the 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall, came in second with $17.1M, proving that the public’s appetite for Judd Apatow laughers has not waned. Its modest $40M budget stands in stark contrast to the other new comedy released this week. The budget for Killers, starring Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher, clocked in at whopping $75M. It debuted in third with $16.1M, thanks to a weak ad campaign that made it look like a re-run of Heigl and Kutcher’s past movies. Other new releases incuding, Marmaduke starring Owen Wilson and the well reviewed horror thriller Splice starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley were dead on arrival.
