'Shrek Forever After'Call him the Little Ogre That Could. 'Shrek Forever After' may have opened with disappointing numbers compared to the first three 'Shrek'-taculars, but given the motley competition this week -- four varied new movies that will divide up the audience pie -- the latest 'Shrek' should have no trouble remaining the box office leader for the third straight week.

A drop in fortunes of just under 50 percent from last week would still mean a take this weekend of $22 to $26 million, more than enough to beat the four newcomers ('Get Him to the Greek,''Killers,''Marmaduke,' and 'Splice'), as well as holdovers 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' and 'Sex and the City 2.' That would take the toon's three-week total to about $180 million, putting it in a class with only 'Iron Man 2' among the summer's biggest blockbusters so far.
