Up Set to Be Pixar’s 2nd Best

Industry insiders were once worried that Pixar’s Up would do less well than the company’s previous efforts, given its unmarketable main characters. They were wrong: The film is on pace to become Pixar’s second-highest grossing of all time, beating all previous efforts except for Finding Nemo. Through Sunday, the film’s domestic total was $187.4 million. Though only 40 percent of theaters are showing Up in 3-D, those theaters have accounted for 60 percent of its gross. In order to move into second place, it is expected to beat The Incredibles' $261.4 million take.
