A Monsterous Opening Weekend at the Box Office – Updated with 3rd Week Totals

Monsters University Screencap

“It’s time for a celebration!”, a quote right from Scott “Squishy” Squibbles as Monsters University was the “Top Scarer” of the Box Office this weekend – bringing in a screaming $82 million weekend total (the United States and Canada totals). Thus, breaking the early $80 million predictions and making Monsters University the second-highest opening weekend for a Pixar film behind Toy Story 3 ($110 million in 2010).

It should also be noted that the film brought in an additional $54.5 million from the 35 foreign markets where the film also debuted, making an impressive $136.5 million globally for this Monsterous opening weekend!

We would like to extend a big congratulations to the entire Monsters University crew for their work on this magnificent film!

UPDATED: June 30th – Monsters University is #1 at the Box Office for the second week in a row, scaring up an estimated $171 million domestically and over $300 million worldwide! Monsters University has yet to premiere in all markets and we can only imagine that the “scare” numbers will increase.

UPDATED: July 7th – Monsters University has surpassed $400 million worldwide this past weekend!
