Shrek Almost Upsets Pearl Harbor for #1 Spot

(June 3, 2001 - by digitalmediafx.com) Shrek almost pulled off a major upset by nearly beating out Buena Vista's Pearl Harbor at movie theaters over the weekend. According to weekend estimates, Pearl Harbor made exactly $30 million from Friday - Sunday and PDI/DreamWorks Shrek made $28.4 million. Shrek premiered in theaters a week earlier than Pearl Harbor making the near upset in Pearl Harbor's second weekend even more amazing.

Even though Shrek didn't upset Pearl Harbor, it had a much lower drop-off rate than Pearl Harbor, leading analysts to believe that Shrek will easily gross more money than Pearl Harbor.

Shrek next opens in Italy on June 15, 2001.
