Pixar’s UP has reached a milestone that not many films reach; it has surpassed the $250 million mark in domestic ticket sales. This past weekend’s $13,061,737 helped bring UP’s total to $250,234,554. Add to that $35,364,786 from foreign ticket sales, and UP’s current worldwide total is a whopping $285,599,340. I should note, however, that UP has not been released in all foreign territories. In fact, between now and December, it will slowly release in various countries, ending with Japan in mid-December.
Also, UP is now 2009’s highest grossing domestic film, surpassing Star Trek’s current $246 million total. Unfortunately, UP’s position in the #1 spot will be taken away eventually by Transformers 2, which managed to pull in $200 million in only five days!
