Everyone's favorite green ogre easily took the box office crown from Spider-man this weekend, drawing in $122,000,000. But that's no surprise of course. Spider-man 3 is in it's third weekend of release and is dropping rapidly. What I find most interesting is the presence of Waitress, an indie comedy starring Keri Russell, Jeremy Sisto, and Andy Griffith, in the top ten, having grossed $1,135,000 in only 116 theaters. That's not a huge amount, but impressive for a film of its size in limited release playing against Spider-man 3 and a just released Shrek the Third. Could this end up being this year's Little Miss Sunshine?

Shrek 3 is my least fav of the bunch. I still liked it though.
