Up Earns $68.2 Million, Tops Weekend Box Office

It looks like I might have been wrong about Up. It earned $68.2M its first weekend. Final judgment on my bold prediction of Up being Pixar's first bomb should be reserved for next week--if the receipts drop off like they did for Watchmen ($67.9M week 1, $18.1M Week 2) earlier this year, I could still be proven right.

I didn't predict that it would be bad, just that it wouldn't do well. I didn't think that the kid audience would respond to an octogenarian protagonist.
