Buenos Aires -- The Latin American debut of Disney/Pixar’s Monsters University marked the studio’s biggest opening for the region, grossing $31.7 million.
The Monsters, Inc. prequel opened last weekend in Latin America, and placed itself at the top of Disney/Pixar releases in Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina.
The film also topped the studio's debut mark in Central America, and placed itself behind the Toy Story 3 and Cars 2 openings in Brazil and Mexico.
In Argentina, attendance for Monsters University climbed to the top and broke both box-office and ticket-sale records for a debut with more than 802,000 tickets sold in a four-day weekend that turned out to be one of the strongest in local history, with approximately 1.6 million people attending cinemas, according to numbers by Ultracine and Rentrak.
