LOS ANGELES, June 23 (UPI) -- The animated "Monsters University," featuring the voices of Billy Crystal and a host of stars, claimed the No. 1 weekend box office spot with $82 million.

"World War Z," a thriller starring Brad Pitt, was second with a very respectable $66 million -- which would have put the film in first place during most weekends.
