Up Rises in Pixar B.O. Rankings

Up is rising quickly through the ranks of Pixar releases with strong box office results that could turn it into the studio’s second-highest grossing film to date.

So far, the film has grossed $191 million at the domestic box office in 2′ weeks of release. It’s on track to pass Ratatouille, which grossed $206 million, and last year’s WALL’E, which came in with $223 million.

It remains to be seen if it can edge past the $261 million The Incredibles took in to reach second place, though box office experts told Variety that it was likely.

Pixar’s top-grossing film is Finding Nemo, which took in $339 domestically.

Up has yet to premiere in more than a handful of international markets, but its foreign box office performance is likely to be as significant as it has been for other Pixar films.

Up‘s receipts have been boosted by being the studio’s first 3-D release, as most exhibitors charge a few dollars more per ticket for the experience. The effect may be short-lived, however, as most 3-D screens will likely drop the film to show Fox’s upcoming Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs 3-D on July 1.
