Weekend estimates are in and it looks like Up has grabbed another $23.4 million over Father’s day weekend. Most impressive is that Up is off only 23.6% from last weekend and continues to show really strong legs (due to great word of mouth). Total gross is now at $226.2 million, which surpasses Ratatouille‘s domestic take from 2007.
A few other interesting tidbits. Up currently stands at #66 on the all time domestic box office list and #6 on Pixar’s top grossing films list. Four of Pixar’s films that art directly ahead of Up are bunched together pretty tight (#45 Cars sits at $244 million, while #2 The Incredibles is at $261.4 million). I fully expect Up to surpass all these films and end its run #2 (behind Finding Nemo). Congrats once again to Pixar!
