Monstrous weekend at the box office

We think it’s pretty cool that the top four films at the box office this weekend were featured on our Summer Movie Preview list but that just proves what audiences crave, right?

Disney Pixar’s Monsters University taught the zombies of Brad Pitt’s World War Z a lesson and took the top spot, grossing $82 million. WWZ took in a respectable $66 million but it has a way to go before recouping its almost $200 million budget.

Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel remained strong in third place and added an additional $41.2 million making its total take a whopping $210 million. It did however cost $225 million to make but we’re confident that will be recovered soon.

The Seth Rogen/Jonah Hill comedy This is the End brought $13 million to its kitty for a nice $57.9 million. End’s budget was a mere $32 million, so the bawdy boys should be happy!

Did you hit the theaters this weekend? Which film did you “contribute” to? Let us know!
