Monsters University hit the front of the class this weekend, taking in $82 million, but Brad Pitt's zombie thriller World War Z snagged a healthy $66 million as the two combined for the second biggest weekend of the year. It was also one of the top 10 weekends on the books and Pitt's biggest domestic opening ever, reports the Hollywood Reporter. Rounding out the top 5 movies were Man of Steel ($41.2 million), This Is the End ($13 million), and Now You See Me ($7.9 million).
