Upset at the Box Office

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A flip-flop at the weekend Box Office today. Once the Sunday figures were in, it became clear movie ticket sales were higher for the new R-rated comedy, “The Hangover” than the animated adventure “Up.” So there’s a switch at the top of the Box Office.

“The Hangover” is now number one with $45 million. Yesterday, the film’s weekend estimated gross hovered at around $43 million. “The Hangover” had the third best opening ever for an R-rated comedy.

“Up” was in the top spot on Sunday. Today, it dropped to second place with about $44 million.
