Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
Celebrity Business Analyst announced the top three films with the highest weekend grosses in its weekly box office report. The announcement was made after a June 24 Huff Post Entertainment report which stated that a sequel for newcomer World War Z has already been confirmed by Paramount Pictures.
1. Monsters University: At the head of the box office this weekend was Disney and Pixar’s follow-up to 2001’s Monsters, Inc., which can be viewed occasionally through television packages. The film had an outstanding opening weekend grossing a staggering $82 million, making it the second biggest Pixar opening behind Toy Story 3. Monsters University is something of a prequel to its predecessor, giving audiences a look at monsters Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sully (John Goodman) in their college days, before they were the best of friends.
2. World War Z: In the number two spot this weekend is Paramount’s summer tent pole. Brad Pitt plays Gerry Lane, a United Nations employee who fights against a zombie pandemic spreading throughout the world’s governments and militaries. The film made $66 million this weekend in North America, which is included in its $111 million gross worldwide. Due to the successful opening, Paramount has already announced that it will begin to develop a sequel soon.
3. Man of Steel: The Superman installment earned $41.2 million this weekend, dropping it from number one into the third spot. This is unsurprising since the top two newcomers had also been surrounded by a lot of hype. Man of Steel is still going strong, having pulled in $398.3 million worldwide since its opening last weekend.
Celebrity Business Analyst announced the weekend’s top three films in its weekly box office report, stating that it was not surprised that these three blockbuster films topped the charts.
