"Shrek The Third" Sets New Record

Hitting the box offices on Friday, "Shrek the Third" took in $122 million in its first weekend. This broke the franchise's own record for best debut ever for an animated film, according to studio estimates Sunday. "Shrek 2" in 2004 was 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."

For all you green ogre fans, you don't have to wait to get your Shrek costumes. Kids dress up as Shrek, Princess Fiona, Puss n Boots or Donkey! Adults can join in the green fun and dress up as Shrek or Princess Fiona!
