Weekend Box Office: "Monsters University" Top of the Class Again

20th Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- Pixar's Monsters University took the top spot at the box office this weekend despite facing a challenge from two newcomers, The Heat and White House Down.

Monsters brought in $46 million during its second weekend, but the real story was perhaps the surprise success of The Heat. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, is a buddy cop movie with two female leads, a rare and typically underperforming genre. It doubled its expected $20 million debut to make $40 million over the weekend. Who says women aren’t funny?

White House Down opened as expected in fourth, and World War Z fell 55 percent to place third. Man of Steel rounded out the top five, as this week the Superman movie surpassed the $500 million mark worldwide.

Here are the top 5 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated ticket sales, according to Hollywood.com:

1.     Monsters University     $46.18M      
2.     The Heat     $40.0M      
3.     World War Z     $29.8M      
4.     White House Down     $25.7M      
5.     Man of Steel     $20.82M
