WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Shrek Forever After took the top spot with 71.3 million -- but the tracking projections ranged from 80-100 million, so ouch. It will likely make money in worldwide release (the main budget is only 130 mill), but the franchise is more like never after.  Iron Man 2 is No. 2 with 26.6 million on a 49 percent drop that has this sequel playing more like a threequel -- a caution flag for Disney/Marvel.  Robin Hood drops 48 percent to No. 3 with 18.7 million, yet another flick that will have to make its money overseas.  Letters to Juliet drops only 33 percent to No.4, making 9.1 million; it has likely broken even, esp after selling the foreign rights.  Just Wright took a 49 percent drop to round out the Top Five with 4.2 million.  Below the fold, MacGruber debuted in the sixth slot with 4.1 million, so it's a good thing the budget was only 10 million.
