Weekend Box Office Recap

The big green ogre beats the guy in the steel suit as "Shrek Forever After" takes the top spot, earning $71 million in its opening bow. "Iron Man 2" drops to second place, earning $26.6 mil.

"Magruber" falls flat (as expected) landing in 6th place and bringing in a little over 4 million. Rick Groen of the Globe and Mail summed it up best: "Its MacAwful."
