Sorry zombies, those cute monsters from Disney and Pixar took top honors at the box office this weekend.

Monsters University, the sequel to the beloved 2001 animated flick Monsters Inc, grossed some $82 million domestically, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film, starring the voices of Billy Crystal (Mike Wazowwwwwwski!), John Goodman and Steve Buscemi, is a prequel set some 10 years before the time of little Boo.

Meanwhile, World War Z, the apocalyptic horror film starring Brad Pitt and scary zombies, opened in second place with $66 million. The picture, directed by Marc Forster, has also enjoyed overseas success, with some $45.8 million in foreign ticket sales.

Man of Steel, This is the End and Now You See Me wrap the top five, with $41.2 million, $13 million and $7.9 million, respectively.

On deck: Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx’s action movie White House Down and The Heat, Sandra Bullock’s female buddy cop pic with Melissa McCarthy.
