Weekend Box Office Results 5/23/10

23 May

Shrek Forever After managed to win this weekend’s box office race, but came in way below the opening of Shrek the Third.  Below = more than $50 million less.  Buzz hadn’t been very good for the last of the Shrek films, but it still has a built-in fan base that helped it achieve its $70+ million weekend.

MacGruber was a disappointment as well, not even being able to crack the top 5 this weekend.  It still will probably recoup its $10 million budget, but the SNL history of sketches made into flopping films continues on.

Box Office Mojo’s Top 10 Box Office Estimates for 5/21-5/23:

1. Shrek – $71.2 million
2. Iron Man 2 – $26.6 million
3. Robin Hood – $18.7 million
4. Letters to Juliet – $9.1 million
5. Just Wright – $4.2 million
6. MacGruber – $ 4.1 million
7. Date Night – $2.8 million
8. A Nightmare on Elm Street – $2.2 million
