    The numbers it pulled in weren't exactly a surprise though. The prequel to Pixar's 2001 Monsters Inc. met industry projections, and gave it the second-highest opening ever for the company.  

    What did surprise analysts was World War Z's weekend gross—Brad Pitt's thriller nabbed $66 million in its debut weekend, when it was expected to open to no more than $55 million, according to the Los Angeles Times

    Meanwhile, Man of Steel landed in third with $41.2 million, followed by This Is the End with $13 million and Now You See Me at $7.9 million.
