Two live-action comedies have been unable to bring down the animated adventure "Up."

According to studio estimates Sunday, Disney and Pixar Animation's "Up" reeled in $44.2 million in ticket sales to remain on top of the box office for the second weekend in a row.

The Warner Bros. bachelor-bash comedy "The Hangover" came in a close second with a $43.3 million debut.

Will Ferrell's action comedy for Universal, "Land of the Lost," had to settle for a distant third with a $19.5 million opening.

"Up" is the first movie of Hollywood's busy summer season to take the No. 1 spot at the box office for two straight weekends.
