Shrek Forever After to Open Tribeca Film Festival


Shrek Forever After, the fourth and final film in the animated series, will open the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival on April 21. The film, the first Shrek movie to be shown in 3-D, will hit theaters nationwide on May 21, 2010.

"We have always sought to open our festival with films that are captivating and strike an emotional chord with moviegoers," TFF co-founder Jane Rosenthal said. "Shrek Forever After combines the very best in storytelling and artistry while showcasing the wonders of innovative 3-D filmmaking."

We’re hoping Mary-Kate Olsen is back as a judge just to see how she manages to incorporate 3-D glasses into her patented homeless-chic aesthetic.
