Up and The Hangover Have a Photo Finish at the Box Office


Adults flocked to see The Hangover over the weekend, helping the comedy earn an estimated $43.3 million. However, it wasn't quite enough to bump Pixar's family-friendly movie, Up, out of the top spot with its estimated $44.2 million. Despite coming in second place, The Hangover's debut far exceeded expectations and is "the third best opening ever for an R-rated comedy."

Meanwhile, Will Ferrell's Land of the Lost is being called the first "bomb" of the Summer. The adventure flick, which received pretty bad reviews, came in at No. 3 with only $19.5 million over the weekend.

Nia Vardalos's romantic comedy My Life in Ruins also debuted this weekend, coming in at No. 9.

I knew UP would be #1 again this weekend. it looks like a great movie, no matter your age. I really want to see the hangover and year one.

i saw the hangover and the theater was PACKED - so i'm not surprised that it did well. i AM surprised that UP did well for another weekend - but i guess that it is the summer season already and there are a lot of kids that have to be entertained .
