Box Office Predictions: Pixar Squares Off Against Liberal 'White House Down'

Sensei extended the call streak last week. This weekend, Pixar takes on another formidable foe.

Sensei's weekend predictions and revenue results go as follows:

1. "Monsters University" ($41 million) - I see a close match-up with White House Down. Normally White House Down would win easily, but the film's lack of star power concerns me. Because of this, I'm going with animation and family audiences to eventually pull away.

2. "White House Down" ($38 million) - The frame is strong and this opening date is a perfect fit for this action film. I see a better opening than the similar themed Olympus Has Fallen ($30 million), which opened earlier this year.

3. "World War Z" ($32 million) - Great opening last week. I see a strong second weekend ahead.

4. "The Heat" ($28 million) - Has anyone seen any marketing for this? Film is under the radar, which isn't a bad thing, but looks to prevent it from achieving an Identity Thief or Bad Teacher-like opening. Going with mid-level results here.

5. "Man Of Steel" ($20 million) - Already over $400 million worldwide, the comic book icon is well on its way to being one of the year's biggest hits. Word of mouth also continues to be amazingly strong.

That's Sensei's calls. Enjoy the weekend.
