Box Office Numbers: Wossamotta U


Monsters University has taken the top slot for its second week, fending off newcomers The Heat (which came in second) and White House Down (which came in a disappointing fourth). World War Z held steady at third place, and Man of Steel dipped down to fifth.

Clearly the visionary filmmakers behind 2000’s The Adventures of Rock & Bullwinkle should take a page out of Pixar’s book consider a prequel to that film. Just think of it: the college years of Rocky and Bullwinkle. It may not seem lucrative, but I think if they make it dark and gritty, it could debut strong. Robert De Niro would play a young fearless leader de-aged by bad CG.
