Shrek Forever After holding strong for DreamWorks box office tallies

Shrek Forever After holding strong for DreamWorks box office tallies

Since its theatrical debut three weeks ago, Shrek Forever After, the latest installment in the Shrek franchise, has remained king ogre on top of the weekend box office. This past weekend, the CG and 3D animated toon from DreamWorks Animation pulled in another $25 million, bringing it’s total haul thus far to a walloping $185 million. Does this level of success still mean this sequel will truly be “the final chapter”? For now, we’ll just have to wait and see. Take a look at the full box office breakdown

With a new hero looking to top Iron Man, would Marvel’s shell head hold onto first place? “Yes”, replies the past weekend’s box office! Down over $80 million dollars from it’s opening weekend, Iron Man 2, the sequel to Disney and Marvel’s Iron Man, got a little shot of humility, but was still able to lead the theater pack. For the second week in a row, Iron Man 2 won the top spot – this time by about $15 million, with the second place Robin Hood archer pulling in $36 million to Iron Man’s $52 million. Letters to Juliet and Just Wright took the third and fourth spots, and it was DreamWorks Animations’ How to Train Your Dragon still holding on with another $5 million, good for fifth place.

After weeks of dominance at the box office, DreamWorks Animations’ How To Train Your Dragon finally had to step down from the leader pile, and in one of the biggest ways imaginable. Disney and Marvel released their latest super hero phenom this weekend, Iron Man 2, the sequel to 2008’s Iron Man. The shellhead battered the box office listing, raking in $133 million dollars domestically as U.S. audiences finally got their turn at theaters. A Nightmare on Elm Street scared up a meager second place after briefly holding on to first, but in the end, it wasn’t close; Iron Man 2 won the weekend by almost $125 million. Take a look at the full results list

On it’s fifth weekend in theaters, How To Train Your Dragon is back on top of the box office mountain, securing the #1 spot with an estimated $15 million. While this certainly isn’t a Dragon-sized amount, it was more than enough to battle back new comers like The Back-Up Plan and The Losers. After this weekend, the CG viking and dragon adventure is just $20 million shy of reaching the $200 million benchmark; though with the film’s recent clinging to the box office top spot, it shouldn’t be much longer until that is a thing of the past.

Four weeks into being in theaters, “Dragons” breathes fire once more! DreamWorks Animation’s latest CG and 3D epic, How To Train Your Dragon was released nearly a month ago, on March 26th, finding the top spot at the box office then. After weeks of doing battle with Clash of the Titans, Date Night, and now the comic book based Kick Ass, How To Train Your Dragon claws it’s way back to the #1 spot again, pulling in $20 million dollars and bringing it’s US total to just under $160 million. Having a #1 spot so late into the release cycle is certainly a rare and admirable feat — just ask Avatar, having done it nearly two months in a row. Take a look at the full box office listing:

In one of the closest weekend box office races of the past few months, there was a near three-way tie for the top spot, as Date Night, Clash of the Titans, and How to Train Your Dragon finished within $1.7 million of each other. Date Night took the top spot honors, which also relates to toon fans, as it stars Tina Fey and Steve Carell, each stars of upcoming animated films — Carell stars in Universal’s Despicable Me, and Tina Fey, who also starred in Ponyo, will appear in DreamWorks’ Megamind. The CG friendly Clash of the Titans took the biggest drop, losing 50% of its audience from last week, where as DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon held strong in it’s third week.
