Following its impressive debut last weekend, Monsters University held on to first place on Friday with an estimated $14.2 million. As expected, the Pixar prequel edged out newcomers The Heat and White House Down and will now enjoy its second weekend on top with at least $45 million.

In the battle of the new releases, The Heat clearly burned the brightest. The R-rated comedy earned an estimated $13.6 million from 3,181 locations on Friday, including $1 million from Thursday pm previews. That puts the Fox feature on track for over $35 million through Sunday – topping its $30 million studio projection. A few weeks back, Sony’s White House Down was also expected to open in the $30-$35 million range. But after realizing just $9 million from 3,222 locations on Friday, the action-thriller will be lucky to reach $25 million by Sunday. In case you’re keeping score, Olympus Has Fallen earned $30.3 million for its debut last March – and with half the reported budget of White House Down. We’ll have complete details on this weekend’s box office tomorrow.

 Title Friday Total
1.  Monsters University $14,280,000 $139.1
2.  The Heat $13,600,000 $13.6
3.  White House Down $9,000,000 $9
4.  World War Z $8,940,000 $102.8
5.  Man of Steel $6,020,000 $233.8
