Weekend Top Five blaze the box office with Pixar's Monstr University at No 1e

MUMBAI: As the Hollywood Box office unleashed two new tentpoles, Roland Emmerich?s White House Down and Paul Feig?s The Heat, the top five grossing the weekend opening have changed. Although the new releases have taken over last weeks World War Z and Man of Steel, the animation dramaMonsters University seems to be sailing strong at the number One position. Sandra Bullock?s comedy action The Heat confirms the second position followed closely byWhite House Down at number three.

As per Fandango, Bullock?s comedyThe Heat sold over 50 per cent more advance tickets than Feig?s previous project, Bridesmaids. An interesting Fandango survey revealed that 88 per cent of ticket buyers wanted more female-oriented laughter. Based on the Thursday opening and Friday?s weekend collections, Pixar?s second highest grossing prequel Monsters University raked in nearly $17 million pushing its worldwide grossing to $173.7 million and counting. Sources from the industry predict the animation flick will cross the $200 million mark by this weekend. However the coming week looks bleak as Illumination Entertainment?s sequel Despicable Me 2 hits the screens on 3 July.

Over the two day run, The Heat minted nearly $41 million while Emmerich?s catastrophic action White House Down grossed over $33.3 million.

At the number four position, Brad?s Zombie flick amasses a fair $32.5 million followed last by the red capped Kryptonian reboot Man of Steel at $ 21.5 million. The $225 million dollar high octane superhero flick has grossed nearly $450 million, however with stiff competition in the coming week, Man of Steel may be pushed out from the Top five.
