Shrek takes weekend prize
by Doc on May.21, 2001, under Movies
All the trades are reporting that Dreamworks SKG’s Shrek has taken over at the box office, taking in over $40 million and placing second all time for an animated movie weekend opening, behind Toy Story 2, and displacing The Lion King. Not a bad take for an ogre. Is this good news (acceptance of CGI) or bad news (it wasn’t theirs) for Disney/Pixar’s next feature, Monsters, Inc.?
