Who says you have to be a superhero to take over the world -- or the box office? Paramount/DreamWorks Animation's villainous 'Megamind' easily outmuscled the competition in its opening weekend, snatching the top spot with an estimated $47.7 million haul.
Out of 3,944 screens playing the Will Ferrell/Tina Fey animation, a record-breaking 2,634 of those locations were 3D-equipped, accounting for a 3D share of 66 percent. The movie also opened on 195 IMAX 3D screens, for those who thought that Megamind's head just wasn't huge enough on a regular screen.
The blue-skinned baddie headlines DreamWorks' third animated release this year, beating the $43.7 million opening weekend for 'How To Train Your Dragon', but falling short of the epic $70.8 million for 'Shrek Forever After,' which benefited from the ogre's worldwide name recognition.
