"Drag Me to Hell" tells the story of Christine Brown (Alison Lohman), an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charming boyfriend, Professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) enters their lives…and everything begins to unravel.
When her loan is denied and she loses her house, the shamed Mrs. Ganush places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Christine is tortured and desperate to have her old life back, so she sets on a quest to reverse the spell. But as evil forces close in and threaten to drag her deep into hell, Christine must face the unthinkable: how far will she go to break free of the curse?
Todd Phillip's surprise hit of the summer The Hangover held its first place position for a second straight week in a row. The R rated comedy, which stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zack Galifianakis as three friends searching for their groom the day after the bachelor party, scored an impressive $33.4 million, pushing its cumulative take past the hundred million dollar mark. Having earned $105.3 million, The Hangover has surpassed most other second week grosses this year.
Coming in with a strong second place finish was Disney/Pixar's Up, which pulled in another $30.5 million. The film, which follows a 78-year-old balloon salesman named Carl Fredricksen (Ed Asner) as he fulfils his lifelong dream of visiting the wilds of South America, has now earned $187 million, pushing it further up Pixar's all-time best list. It has successfully moved ahead of A Bug's Life to become the number nine most successful Pixar film of all time. Look for it to continue to climb up this chart for the rest of the summer.Read More
Disney/Pixar's Up remained at the top of the box office charts this weekend, pulling in another $44.2 million. The film, which follows a 78-year-old balloon salesman named Carl Fredricksen (Ed Asner) as he fulfils his lifelong dream of visiting the wilds of South America, has now earned $137 million, making it a certified hit. Coming in at number ten on the all-time best box office earnings score chart for a Pixar film, Up still has a long road to hoe before it beats Finding Nemo's number one status. Pixar's popular fish tale managed to earn $339 million back in 2003.
The race for second and third place was an effortless beat down. The R rated comedy The Hangover, which stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zack Galifianakis as three friends searching for their groom the day after his bachelor party, scored a hefty $43.2 million, leaving this week's other big budget comedy, Land of the Lost, in the dust. Though it came in at third place, Will Ferrell's hip retooling of the Sid & Marty Krofft Saturday morning kids' show only managed to bring in $19.5 million. Word of mouth has crushed its success, and it's unlikely we will be hearing from Marshal, Will, and Holly ever again.Read More

The film, which follows a 78-year-old balloon salesman named Carl Fredricksen (Ed Asner) as he fulfils his lifelong dream of visiting the wilds of South America, is Pixar's tenth feature length animated movie.

Strong word of mouth should keep it adrift through most of June.Read More
