Meanwhile, the sci-fi spectacular Pacific Rim opened at #3 with $38.3 million.

The Heat finished in fourth place at $14 million, ahead of The Lone Ranger at $11.1 million and Monsters University at $10.6 million.

World War Z ($9.4 million) landed in seventh place, with White House Down ($6.2 million), the comedy stand-up film Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain ($5 million), and Superman reboot Man of Steel ($4.8 million) rounding out the Top 10.
