What's 'Up' Doesn't Always Come Too Far Down7 Jun, 2009 By: Thomas K. Arnold
Two wide new releases aimed at young adults and families, Warner Bros.' The Hangover and Universal Studios' Land of the Lost remake, failed to bounce Disney/Pixar's Up from the top of the weekend box office charts. Up made $44.2 million, but the R-rated Hangover came in at a surprisingly strong No. 2 with $43.3 million, significantly more than expected. Only Land of the Lost disappointed, generating just $19.5 million for a weak No. 3 weekend finish. To read my full box office report in USA Today, click here.
