“Shrek Forever After” takes Friday, “MacGruber” far behind

Shrek Forever After (also known as Shrek: The Final Chapter) opened to over $20 million Friday, taking a commanding lead in the box office. Second was Iron Man 2 with nearly $7.5 million, with Robin Hood at third with a little over $5.7 million. The new Saturday Night Live film, MacGruber didn’t find good footing, ranking fifth with around $1.6 million on Friday.

This bad news for the folks behind MacGruber because of an extensive marketing push as well as hopes to revitalize the SNL movie franchise. This is the first film based on a sketch from the show since 2000’s The Ladies Man. The last big hit for the series was the movie Wayne’s World.
