Shrek 3 made a whole lot of money over the weekend. How much, you might be asking yourself, would that be? How about $122 million? That makes Shrek 3 the third-highest opening weekend of all time, just behind Pirates 2 and Spiderman 3. Of course, that list stands a pretty good chance of a shakeup after this coming weekend, when Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End opens.
Still, that kind of money breeds sequels, and Shrek is no different. Already, talk has begun about Shrek 4, and the stars of the franchise have indicated that they are into making more. Jeffrey Katzenberg has indicted that he would very much like the fourth edition of the franchise to be 'an origin story.'
So, look forward to more Shrek in your future.
