1. Monsters University (Buena Vista/Pixar) WDSMPI $46.2m ($171m) (1)
2. The Heat (Fox) Fox Int’l $40m (NE)
3. World War Z (Paramount) PPI $29.8m ($123.7m) (2)
4. White House Down (Sony) SPRI $25.7m (NE)
5. Man of Steel (Warner Bros) WBPI $20.8m ($248.7m) (3)

 

Pixar’s ‘Monsters University’ enjoyed a strong second weekend hold, grossing a further $46.2m to retain the No. 1 spot at the North American box office.  The ‘Monsters Inc’ prequel now stands on an impressive $171m domestically.

 

Both weekend wide releases scored ‘A-‘ CinemaScores on Friday openings but fared very differently over the weekend.  Paul Feig’s crime comedy, ‘The Heat’, starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock, earned $5m higher than market expectations to finish on $40m.  But, Roland Emmerich’s high budget action thriller, ‘White House Down’, struggled to $25m, being a disastrous $10m less than predictions notwithstanding the box office draw of Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.

 

‘World War Z’ split the two openers in third place with a reasonable $29.8m during its second weekend in play, taking its overall tally to $123.7m.  It represented a fall of 55% for the Zombie pandemic thriller after a much stronger than expected opening.silvitra costocost of silvitracost of silvitraBuy silvitra tabletssilvitra tabletsBuy silvitra canadaBuy silvitra tablets
