Variety Weekend - Shrek, Street Dance 3D & Robin Hood at the Canadian, North American, UK & Australian Box Offices May 21, 2010 Weekend

Shrek Forever After debuts strong in Canada & North America coming in #1 this weekend and in the top 5 for highest grossing weekends of the year so far. MacGruber debuts at #5 in Canada and #6 in North America, Kites at #8 in Canada and #10 in North America. I think Kites is the only film to be released this week that hit all the charts!

UK #1 is Street Dance 3D, a UK film that opened this weekend there and opens throughout Europe in the next few weeks. Sadly no North American release dates yet for Street Dance 3D, although we are getting a 3D dance film here in August with Step-Up 3D. To add to (at least my) jealously of the UK getting a dance film we haven't got here, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time opened on May 21, 2010 (a whole week ahead!) and debuts at #2. More new releases include Kites debuting at #5 and The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans at #9.

In Australia, Robin Hood (2010) takes top honours for the second week in a row, and the comedy The Kings of Mykonos: Wog Boy 2, an Australia/Greece co-production, comes in second on the charts. The Back-Up Plan debuts at #4, A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) at #5, Harry Brown at #7, Kites at #9 and Food, Inc at #20.
