Box Office Predictions

There are 2 major movies coming out this weekend. One is Brad Pitt's World War Z, and a prequel to one of my favorite movies of all time Monsters Inc titled Monsters University. Which one will reign supreme? Will Man of Steel stay on top of the box office? My answer is no. Man of Steel will not be the top of the box office. Yes it is the best movie of the year so far, but it has an uphill battle to overcome because Superman Returns was not anybody's favorite. And Man of Steel is starting a new franchise. So what will earn the most this weekend? Lets break down World War Z. World War Z has handled their marketing pretty good. It has a 70% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes which I think surprised many. This movie looked just like a normal zombie movie. So with that 70% rating, the marketing being handled fairly well, and it starring Brad Pitt this movie will do fairly well. Now Monsters University. This movie has a lot more going for it then World War Z and Man of Steel do. First off Monsters Inc is one of Pixars best films. If not the best. Right now it has a 77% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes. And if you think about it, the kids who saw Monsters Inc when it first came out are now going into college. Monsters University is a much more family friendly film then World War Z. So parents will take their whole family to Monsters University rather than forbidding their children under the age of 10 to go see World War Z. With that being said, My prediction for the box office opening day of Monsters University and World War Z is
#1 spot will go to Monsters University with 75 million 
#2 spot will go to Man of Steel. The hype will still continue and earn 74.5 million
#3 spot will go to World War Z with a little under 74 million
