By Alexandra Heilbron on May 31, 2010 | 1 Comment

North American moviegoers continued to favor the fourth and final Shrek instalment — Shrek Forever After — at the box office to the tune of an additional $55.7 million (all figures $U.S.), for a two-week total of $145.5 million. Tribute viewers ranked it a favorable 3.9 stars out of 5 stars. The action flick Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, starring a buffed-up Jake Gyllenhaal, earned $37.8 million and a 4.2 star approval from Tribute viewers. The expected favorite, Sex and the City 2, which started off strong with a Thursday opening, fell short, earning $37.1 million and garnering a Tribute viewer rating of 2.8 out of 5. Iron Man 2 slipped two spots to No. 4 in its third weekend out, taking in an additional $20.6 million for a studio-pleasing total of $278 million in North America alone. Also still loving the film were Tribute viewers, rating it at 4 stars. Rounding out the top five was Robin Hood, earning $13.6 million in its third week and a 3.7 star Tribute viewer rating, but still hovering below the coveted $100 million mark at $86 million. At the Canadian box office, Shrek Forever After was No. 1 with $4 million; Sex and the City 2 came in second with $3.1 million, while Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time earned $2.7 million.
