The Heat

Mike and Sulley are continuing their stint at the head of the class for a second weekend. Monsters University, Pixar’s new prequel, won its opening weekend handily and has now fended off stiff competition from Melissa McCarthy/Sandra Bullock cop comedy The Heat to stay atop the US box office charts, with $46.1 million to date in the States according to studio estimates. The film now has a healthy $171 million US take after just two weeks on release.

Still, Paul Feig and Team Heat won’t be too upset, as the new comedy opened to an impressive $40 million for second place. It forced World War Z into third, with the Brad Pitt zombie fest earning $29.8 million.

There was sobering news for Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, though, as Sony’s immensely fun White House Down faltered, opening in fourth to $25.7 million. It’ll need to go some to recoup that hefty $150 million plus price tag. Fifth place went to Man Of Steel with $20.8 million.

This Is The End slipped to sixth with $8.7 million, while Now You See Me Was seventh and $5.5 million. Fast & Furious 6 drove down to eighth with $2.4 million, and Star Trek Into Darkness used its tractor beam to stay at ninth, earning $2 million. Finally, at 10th, The Internship made $1.4 million.
