411 Box Office Report: Monsters University Claims Second Week at #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.30.2013





Pixar claimed a second week in a row on top of the box office this weekend. Monsters University brought in $46.1 million in its second weekend for #1. The film has a 44% drop, which is exceptional considering the high first-weekend gross. The film has a domestic total of $171 million and a worldwide total of $300.3 million. The movie's budget was $270 million.

Coming in unexpectedly strong at #2 was The Heat. The Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy buddy cop film took in $40 million, well above the low $30 million range it was expected to do. The film is the second-straight overperformer for director Paul Feig, who also directed Bridesmaids. The comedy averaged $12,575 from 3,181; it is sure to be a big hit with a modest budget of just $43 million.

World War Z followed up its surprisingly strong opening last weekend with another solid frame, dropping one spot to #3 with $29.8 million. The Brad Pitt-starring zombie film has had very good word of mouth and dropped 56%, which is considered to be quite good for a genre film with WWZ's opening weekend gross. The movie has grossed a total of $123.7 million domestically and $259 million worldwide from a budget of $190 million.

Coming in disappointingly at #4 was Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx's White House Down. The film opened with $25.7, which is very low considering that it was expected to be neck-and-neck with The Heat; it is also lower than the $30.8 million that Olympus Has Fallen pulled in despite lower star power earlier this year. The Roland Emmerich-directed film averaged $7,976 from 3,222 theaters and has a long way to go in order to make back its $150 million budget.

Down two spots to #5 in its third week was Man of Steel with $20.8 million. The Zack Snyder-directed Superman film has now grossed $248.7 million domestically and $520.4 million worldwide from a budget of $225 million.

This Is The End was also down two in its third weekend, finishing at #6 with $8.7 million. The R-rated apocalyptic comedy has now grossed $74.7 million from a budget of $32 million.

Now You See Me dropped two spots to #7, bringing in $5.5 million. The magician-themed heist film has a total of $104.7 million domestically and $153.4 million worldwide from a budget of $75 million.

Fast & Furious 6 continued the two-spot dropping trend, ending up at #8 in its sixth weekend. The film brought in $2.4 million, bringing its total to $233.3 million domestically and $682 million worldwide. Its budget was $160 million.

Star Trek Into Darkness was steady at #9 in its seventh weekend, drawing in $2 million. The sequel has a total of $220.5 million domestically and $438.1 million worldwide from a budget of $190 million.

The Internship fell was down three to #10 in its fourth weekend, taking in $1.4 million. The film has a total of $41.7 million in the US and $51.3 million worldwide from a $58 million budget.

The weekend box office tally was $190.5 million, down 9% from last year's $210 million that was led by Ted's $54.4 million opening weekend.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
