'Up' set for big box office accomplishment

Citing unnamed "box office observers", Variety predicts that Up will surpass The Incredibles' $261.4 million domestic gross to become the second-highest-grossing feature film in Pixar history at the domestic box office (that's U.S. and Canada), after Finding Nemo which made $339.7 million domestically.

Pixar's tenth film has so far made about $187.4 million during its North American engagement only, not having opened in any major international markets yet.

For all the latest numbers from Up's "boffo" box office run, domestically and internationally, go to Box Office Mojo.

How much longer will it be in theaters? I still want to take my mom to it.

I am very thrilled and excited for Up's success at the Box Office! This should show the critics and unbelievers that they don't know what they're talking about when it comes to marketing or earnin' money!

And it's also interesting that Up's numbers are as close as Star Trek's when it hit its' third week. Truly amazing.

Mike? Off-topic: but, are you excited for the new Transformers movie? I know I am! :)

I'm like the only person that didn't saw the first one! I just never got into it.

Well, I only saw the first one a few months ago, because the new one was coming out. But I had been waiting for two years to see it though. Once I did get around to it, I saw it and really liked it. It was cool. :)

You aren't the only one, Mike. I never saw the first one either.

Hey Mike? Do you want to see the new Disney movie, G-Force? Did you see the 3-D trailer before Up? I think it looks awesome! : )

I will be seeing Transformers 2 as well. That and Harry Potter 6 are the only things that stand in Up's way of taking top spot of the year.

Apparently, Up has now beaten Monsters vs. Aliens to be the second-highest grossing film of the year--domestically! It's only behind Star Trek, and tomorrow, with it at 198 M, we should see it hit the 200 M mark. It already has worldwide. (Check out the Foreign Box Office page on Up at Box Office Mojo.)
