Pixar's Monsters University grabbed $10.04 million on Wednesday, off 15 percent from its Tuesday gross. The film continues to play well among younger audiences and has accumulated $115.33 million through its first six days. That puts the sequel 35 ahead of the pace of Cars 2 and 25 percent behind Toy Story 3 through the same point. BoxOffice is forecasting a $44 million first place finish for Monsters University in its upcoming sophomore weekend.
World War Z's first Wednesday declined 22 percent from Tuesday for another $6.23 million in the bank. The Brad Pitt/zombie thriller has amassed an impressive $88.3 million for its six-day start, pacing 35 percent ahead of the start for 2008's Wanted.
