Updated 21 May 2004, 18.42
Scene from Shrek I
Shrek 2 has proved a record breaker on its opening day in the US.

It took a whopping 6.7 million, scoring the biggest midweek opening for an animated film, beating a record set by Pokemon: The First Movie in 1999.

The sequel sees Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz once again providing the voices for loveable ogre Shrek and his sweetheart Princess Fiona.

The film is in the running for the top prize at the Cannes film festival. It opens in the UK on 2 July.
