Up Sets Course For Number Two On The Animated Film List
Hit family film UP is on course to become the second biggest animated movie of all time, behind fish tale Finding Nemo.
The quirky 3-D film, about a grumpy old man and a boy scout who become unlikely adventure partners, has already grossed over $187 million (£124.6 million) in America alone in less than a month.
That puts the picture in fifth place behind Ratatouille, Wall-E, The Incredibles and Finding Nemo.
Experts predict Up will easily sail past The Incredibles' $261.4 million (£174.2 million) U.S. box office haul before the end of its cinema run. But the movie is unlikely to reach Finding Nemo, which scored a whopping $339.7 million (£226.4 million) at the U.S. box office alone in 2003.
