Pixar's Up... Up on top of the Box Office

Pixar has done it again, as Up uped the ante (like that one? I got more) at the box office this weekend with over $68 million, beating last year's WALL-E by a few million. Meanwhile, Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell did a little less than I expected, debuting into third place even with a lot of positive reviews.

It is safe to say that Terminator Salvation will now have hard time recouping it's rumored $200 million budget as it has dropped over 60% from last weekend. Uh oh, looks like the Terminator franchise might be in trouble...

Star Trek, on the other hand, has surpassed Monsters Vs. Aliens, to become the highest grossing movie of the year so far, and also the first movie of 2009 to pass the $200 million mark.

Weekend Estimates:
Up: $68.2 million ($68.2 million total)
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian: $25.5 million ($105.3 million total)
Drag Me to Hell: $16.6 million ($16.6 million total)
Terminator Salvation: $16.1 millon ($90.7 million total)
Star Trek: $12.8 million ($209.5 million total)

My Predictions:
Up: $65 million
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian: $27 million
Drag Me to Hell:$22 million
Terminator: Salvation: $21 million
Star Trek: $14 million
