It's Monday morning, which means it's time to take a look at what the box office was up to over the weekend.

In no real big surprise, Pixar's Monsters University retained its top spot for a second weekend in a row despite the Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy buddy cop comedy The Heat hot on its trail.

The Pixar sequel brought its total box office earnings up to $171 million and The Heat almost made back its $43 million budget bringing in $40 million in their first weekend.

World War Z only fell to #3 but took a huge hit in doing so, while not even the beautiful Channing Tatum could pull White House Down up above the #4 slot with $25.7 million.

Meanwhile, Superman took a tumble but still managed to keep Man of Steel in the top 5 with $20.8 million in their third weekend.
