This week we have 2 heavyweights clashing against each other.First my early analysis on the two.

Monsters University 
story-The story of how Sully & Mike met ,10 years before the events of Monsters Inc.(animation)
+ PIXAR ! The animation studio has brought about multiple animated classics and this is the sequel to one of their earlier classics.
- Being a sequel to a classic carries a lot of weight.And Pixar hasnt made a classic since 2010's Toy Story 3.Cars 2 was horrible and Brave too kiddish ,can Monsters University break the bad run?


World War Z 
story-A UN employee travels around the world trying to stop the Zombie virus.
+ Brad Pitt & Running Zombies ! whats there not to like !This is an adaptation of the novel of the same name.
- The movie going over budget ($200million +) ,re-writes ,delays ,re-shoots could have made the movie a mash up of second hand work.

Both the movies have got respectable reviews.76 for WWZ ,and 87 for Monsters.But being a big fan of Pixar ,my Pick for the week will be Monsters University.Whats yours?


*****UPDATE*****
As i earlier reported ,initial estimates for MOS first weekend was $113million ,but according to latest reports MOS has actually made $116million!Whats the big deal?

1-Man Of Steel $116million
2-Spiderman $114million
