That’s right folks, and you know what? This is a proud day for me, rarely since I have been doing the weekend box office report has a week come in which an animated movie made it to the number #1 spot in the box office over the weekend, but not only has one made it this weekend, but it actually is a animated prequel!
According To EW.com, This little gem… This sure fire animated classic is the prequel to the 2001 Disney classic, Monsters, Inc… Of course the one that I am speaking of is Monsters University (2013)!
Monsters University. takes a look at how 2 classic monsters, and inseparable friends, ‘Mike’ (Played by: Billy Crystal) and, ‘Sulley’ (Played by: John Goodman) met at, ‘Monsters University’ and how eventually they became the best of friends!
Now with a whopping $82 million in this weekends box office, this awesome sure fire classic has definitely made it to the number #1 spot in this weekend’s box office for its opening weekend!
At number 2 we got the, ‘Zombie Apocalyptic’ movie, World War Z, having pulled in an awesome $66 million in this weekends box office!
At number 3 we have the latest adventure of Superman in the movie, Man Of Steel, what with having pulled in a spectacular $41.2 million in this weekend’s box office. And with the apocalyptic comedy, This Is The End still doing strong, having pulled in $13 million, it looks like it has made it in to the number 4 spot for the weekend! and last but certainly not least we have magical little energizer bunny in the movie, ‘Now You See Me’, and with this movie having pulled in $7.9 million, it has continued to remain in the box office with a strong fifth place!
In the end it looks like Mike and Sulley and the rest of, ‘Monsters University’ have made the Dean’s List in the world of cinema for the weekend!
