No. 3: 'World War Z' with $29.8 million (last week No. 2) -- In World War Z, Brad Pitt is Gerry Lane, whose special skills are needed to combat a zombie onslaught. That helps him to save his family, including Sterling Jerins as his daughter, Constance, and Mireille Enos as his wife, Karin.
No. 7: 'World War Z' with $9.4 million (last week No. 5) -- The undead scale walls as they seek to invade Israel in World War Z. The living dead are depicted as fast-moving, twitchy and just scary enough. The film rarely devolves into a "mow them down" video game.
