(Relaxnews) – The computer-animated sequel outsold “World War Z” at worldwide box offices during its second weekend in commercial theaters, bringing in $171.3 million. “Despicable Me 2” also topped the US charts at $82.5 million.

At receipts of $63.4 million, the Brad Pitt zombie flick fell behind but still outgrossed newcomer “The Lone Ranger.” This Western vigilante action-packed picture starring Armie Hammer as the masked righter of wrongs and Johnny Depp as his Native American sidekick Tonto raked in $53.7 million in its first weekend on the silver screen.

That consigns “Monsters University” to fourth place at $49 million, ahead of “Man of Steel” with a $32.7 million showing last weekend.
