The big green ogre keeps getting bigger. Shrek the Third took in $122-million in its first weekend, breaking the franchise's own record for best debut ever for an animated film, according to studio estimates Sunday.
The latest adventure of the ogre shot past 2004's Shrek 2, the previous record-holder for animated openings with $108- million.
Produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Paramount, Shrek the Third was the third-biggest debut ever, coming in behind the $151.1-million haul of this month's Spider-Man 3 and the $135.6-million gross of last summer's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
After ruling the box office for two weekends, Sony's Spider-Man 3 slipped to second place with $28.5-million. Rounding up the top five: 28 Weeks Later, $5.15-million; Disturbia, $3.7-million; Georgia Rule, $3.5-million.
