(Newser) Up kept soaring this weekend with $44.2 million, just above Hangover’s $43.3 million debut, USA Today reports. Execs at both films’ studios are pleased with the higher-than-expected results, but Will Ferrell’s Land of the Lost didn’t fare so well, opening to just $19.5 million. Meanwhile, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian ($14.6 million) and Star Trek ($8.4 million) kept up their winning streaks.
