"Shrek 2" has been chosen as the top movie sequel of all time according to a poll held by cinema advertising company Pearl And Dean.
Apparently, the impression that "Shrek 2" left on the moviegoers in Britain has been deep enough to make the flick the top movie sequel of all time above "Terminator 2: Judgment Day."
Yes, the enjoyable CG animated feature soared as the top choice in the survey held by cinema advertising company Pearl And Dean towards 3,000 British filmgoers, beating out more classic, influential movies like "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" and "The Godfather Part II."
"It simply shows a new generation of film fans voting for films from their own era," a spokesperson for the company concluded.
Released in 2004, "Shrek 2" is the follow-up to DreamWorks Pictures' 2001 computer-animated film "Shrek" which follows the adventure of the titular character, a strong but peace-loving green ogre. It spent a total of 21 weeks in theaters, altogether garnering $441,226,247 domestically to be the highest grossing movie of 2004.
