This weekend was great for the box-office, with over $150 million being brought in only by the films in the top 5. While Pixar's "Monsters University" still dominates the top 10, holding on at the top spot with $46M over these last three days, the action comedy "The Heat" starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy took over an honorable second place with $40M, especially impressive considering it's an R-rated movie. The Brad Pitt starrer "World War Z" dropped to #3 with $29M but overall it's doing great, earning $259M worldwide versus a $190M budget.
Roland Emmerich's big-budget blockbuster "White House Down" starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, isn't doing so great, however. The film, which cost $150M to make, only earned $25M in its opening weekend. By comparison, the other White-House-under-siege movie, "Olympus has Fallen", earned $30M in its first three days, but only cost $70M to make and was rated R. "White House Down" is rated PG-13, which was supposed to widen its audience accessibility.
"Man of Steel" rounds up the top 5 with a $20M weekend and a worldwide gross of $520M. The Superman reboot has now grossed more than twice its budget ($225M) and looks like a suitable candidate for one or two sequels.
