As predicted by most movie forecasters, “Monsters University” wins the box office battle against “World War Z“. The animated feature about the college life of Mike Wazowski and Suley Sullivan takes in an easy $82 million approximately in its first run. Brad Pitt’s zombie movie follows right behind it with an estimated $66 million.

Such great start of “Monsters University” marks Pixar’s second-highest opening ever behind 2010’s “Toy Story 3” ($110 million) and the fifth biggest June debut of all time. “So much of this business is predicated on momentum,” says Disney distribution topper Dave Hollis as quoted by Variety. “Summer is here, and man is it good to see big ‘ole weekends like this.”

Paramount’s “World War Z“, which sees Pitt playing a United Nation employee in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic, debuts to a strong result which leaves Warner Bros’ “Man of Steel” no choice but to be in the third position. The Superman movie loses its throne in the second week after only managing to earn another $41.2 million as estimated by the studio.

Last week’s runner-up “This Is the End” falls to No. 4 with approximately $13 million. Lionsgate’s “Now You See Me” rounds up the top five, trailing behind the Seth Rogen comedy with an estimated $7.9 million.
