Pixar goes `Up' with $68.2 million debut weekend Pixar Studios, the last film house in Hollywood that draws an audience on its name alone, scored its 10th straight No. 1 film as Up soared above the competition this weekend.
The animated comedy about a widower and young boy who travel in a flying house raked in $68.2 million, according to studio estimates from Nielsen EDI.
The debut slightly exceeded the expectations of analysts — who expect a lot from the studio behind Finding Nemo, Wall·E and Toy Story.
And the film delivered on virtually every count, scoring an A-plus from CinemaScore and a recommendation from 98% of the nation's films critics, according to RottenTomatoes.com.
