BOX OFFICE

Pixar Heads Up

Pixar has done it again. This weekend the new release Up became the studio's 10th straight No. 1 film, knocking Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian out of the top spot. USA Today reports that Up, an "animated comedy about a widower and young boy who travel in a flying house" made $68.2 million over the weekend, exceeding the already-generous expectations of industry analysts. Even more peculiarly, Up has combined critical and commercial success, earning passing grades from 98 percent of U.S. film critics, according to RottenTomatoes.com.
