World War Z Can’t Top Monsters, Still Makes Big Bucks, Sequel in the Works

The numbers are in and, as expected, Monsters University took the number one slot at the box office.  Still, World War Z made a nice chunk of money at number two.  

The Brad Pitt-starring PG-13 zombie film grossed an estimated $66 million this weekend.  The film is doing quite well overseas, too, bringing its worldwide gross to $112 million.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount is going to start developing a sequel.  No surprise as Pitt has been talking “trilogy” for a while now.

This just goes to show that the general public didn’t necessarily give a damn about the film’s behind-the-scenes drama.

Meanwhile, The Purge continues to hold well at the box office.  The film sits at number eight.  It has made $59.4 million to date.
