I am a big fan of Pixar and the movies they make. I love how they use technology to build great animation franchises and tell great human stories. I was way too busy this weekend doing nothing, otherwise I would seen the new Pixar/Disney movie, Up.
Wall Street analysts had been very negative about this movie, Up has turned out to be third best Pixar movie based on the opening weekend collections. The flick about a grumpy old man, a precocious boy and a flying house took in about $68.2 million this past weekend. J.P. Morgan analysts expect the movie to take in $280-to-$300 million in domestic box office. That is a lot of money for a movie that was supposed to be a dud.
