Zombies Roam While Monsters Rise

Science fiction author George R.R. Martin once remarked, “There are no heroes… in life, the monsters win.” What if those monsters are cute and colorful (and heroes in their own minds?) Are they worthy of the title of winner? In the land of imagination, they most certainly are! The animated ogres showed up at “Monsters University,” determined to master the art of scaring while earning a winning first-place debut this weekend with $82 million at the domestic box office (making it Pixar’s 2nd highest grossing movie ever, behind 2010’s “Toy Story 3”). Zombies, with an assist from human/hero Brad Pitt, wandered the earth all the way to #2 with $66 million in lively cash. Everyone’s favorite summer hero, “The Man of Steel,” heroically followed at #3 with $41.2 million. “This is the End” began the weekend party as well as the trip to the #4 spot with $13 million. “Now You See Me” heading to the magical #5 arena with $7.9 million.
Magicians, monsters and men of steel traded lively anecdotes with zombies and party crashers this weekend as they celebrated summer at the movies. Spotted ATTEMPTING to crash the celebration were a few future summer characters of the comedic variety (hello, Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy!) ready to bring “The Heat” next weekend to a movie theater near you.
From seaside days to starry nights, may the “monsters” invading your week be of the cute, cuddly, heroic kind…
