    Although The Heat, which stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, couldn't stop Monsters University's reign, the comedy flick still pulled in an impressive $40 million for the second spot—about $10 million more than analysts expected it to do, according to USA Today.

    The Heat marks the latest in a string of hits for McCarthy, with Bridesmaids grossing $169 million in 2011 and Identity Thief grossing $135 million earlier this year.

    Meanwhile, World War Z came in third with $29.8 million, followed by White House Down, which debuted at a lower than expected $25.7 million for fourth, and Man of Steel which landed at fifth with $20.8 million.
