Shrek Forever After (aka Shrek 4) is still at the top of the box office charts with a wekeend darw of $55.6M. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time opened in second place, just barely inching out Sex and the City 2 by less than a million in receipts. That leaves Iron Man 2 and Robin Hood to take 4th and 5th spots in the box office, respectively.
The movie Killers, with Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher (poster above), opens this Friday but critics will not see it ahead of the theatrical release. This is because it’s a genre film and it’s expected that fans will watch base on their interest, not because of reviews.
Hayden Panettiere is the latest actress to sign on to Scream 4. The original cast will be present, as well as Rory Culkin, Emma Roberts and others.
You know you want to see it again: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will have a live-action remake. Involvement includes Michael Bay, who is overseeing Transformers 3 at the moment. That is, when he’s not busy firing Mega Fox.

There aren’t lot of new films opening this week, possibly because it’s hard to compete with blockbusters like Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, and others. IMDB lists four new relases, and get more details from their profile pages, which I’ve linked to from each movie’s title.
Still in theaters are recent releases Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, Letters to Juliet, Just Wright, How to Train Your Dragon (animated), A Nightmare on Elm Street, Date Night, The Backup Plan, Furry Vengeance, Clash of the Titans, and others.
Enjoy your movie-watching weekend.

Iron Man 2 is still at the top of the box office charts as of this past weekend, grossing $53M, though Robin Hood (Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Max Von Sydow, Willam Hurt) opened in 2nd place with just over $37M. Also opening, Letters to Juliet (Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave), pulling in $13.75M. [Data from Variety]
Upcoming movies/ roles: Zoe Saldana (pictured above), who played a very sexy Uhura in J.J. Abrams’ version of Star Trek, as Neytiri in Avatar, and Aisha in this year’s The Losers, is possibly playing an assassin in Colombiana, a Luc Besson drama. She’s also listed as being in an untitled Star Trek sequel. Yay! Evan Rachel Wood and professional freak and rockstar Marilyn Manson are attached to the first in a series of slasher flicks, Splatter Sisters. Bruce Willis will be alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Looper, a time-travel science fiction flick. Both actors will be playing the same character. Salma Hayek, who took time off to have a baby, Valentina, has a film, Grown Ups, coming out this year and another, Puss in Boots (voice), coming out next year, plus another 5 films in development. Finally, Jessica Biel will be starring in the Broadway musical version of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Seriously? I just don’t see it.
