Box Office

LOS ANGELES (AP) - It's a "Monster" at the multiplex. "Monsters University" opens at number-one this weekend. The animated family film reunites the cast and characters from "Monsters, Inc.," and brings in $82 million dollars. It's Pixar's 14th straight film to open in the top spot. "World War Z" opens in second with 66 mil -- Brad Pitt's best opening ever. "Man of Steel" drops third, but has already taken in 210 million.

NEW YORK (AP) - Paula Deen will appear on NBC's "Today" show on Wednesday, according to host Matt Lauer. Lauer's announcement came Monday, three days after the celebrity cook abruptly canceled on the morning show, where she was scheduled to answer questions about her past use of racial slurs. Lauer said Deen "told us she will be here this time." While questioned last month in a discrimination lawsuit, the 66-year-old Food Network star admitted to using the N-word in the past, but she insisted she and her family do not tolerate prejudice. Deen issued videotaped apologies Friday afternoon seeking forgiveness from fans and critics. But hours later, the Food Network announced it would not renew her contract when it ends this month.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have taken a new direction in naming their baby girl. They're calling her North - as in North West. The Los Angeles County birth certificate says little North was born to the celebrity and her rapper boyfriend at 5:34 a.m. Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The certificate doesn't mention a middle name. It also doesn't list her hair or eye color or weight. The child was born several weeks early but Kardashian's sister Khloe has said that mom and baby are healthy.

World War Z, Brad Pitt

NEW YORK (AP) - Brad Pitt wanted "World War Z" to be a PG-13 so families could see it together. He says his 11-year-old son Maddox and 9-year-old son Pax were old enough to see it and "loved it." Even though the rating suggests that the movie's for kids 13 and older, Pitt says it's up to the parent to decide if their kids are old enough to see the movie. He says "it's called parental guidance." Pitt describes World War Z as "the most intense thing you're gonna see" this summer. It opens today.

NEW YORK (AP) - James Gandolfini has two more films coming out. A crime movie called "Animal Rescue" was the last film he made. It's scheduled to be released next year. He also stars in a romantic movie called "Enough Said" where Julia Louis-Dreyfus wants a relationship with him. That movie doesn't have a release date. Gandolfini also shot a pilot for HBO playing a low-rent attorney. No episodes beside the pilot have been shot, so that project might never go anywhere.

NEW YORK (AP) - Celebrity cook Paula Deen was a no-show Friday at the "Today" show, where she was scheduled to appear to answer questions about past use of racial slurs. "Today" host Matt Lauer told viewers he had spoken with Deen the day before to arrange what NBC had promoted as an exclusive, live appearance. But shortly before the show went on the air Friday, Lauer said he was told by a Deen representative that she was pulling out. While questioned last month in a discrimination lawsuit, the 66-year-old Food Network star admitted to having used racial slurs in the past, but insisted she and her family do not tolerate prejudice. The Food Network said Thursday it doesn't tolerate any form of discrimination and is looking into the situation. 

LOS ANGELES (AP) - George Jones' life is being made into a movie. His widow, Nancy Jones, says he had started work on his life story six years ago and had hoped the movie would happen before he died.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Blake Shelton is coming clean: he was drinking the day of "The Voice" finale. Shelton says Tuesday started as a special day because it's his birthday and his wife, Miranda Lambert, was with him and they were having fun. Shelton had more to celebrate, when his protege' Danielle Bradbery won. She says she was "overwhelmed with emotion" after "confetti and fireworks in the background and being handed this really heavy trophy." Shakira, meanwhile, is looking forward to some down time and wearing her hair up. She says now, "every day is a bun day."

James Gandolfini dead at 51

LOS ANGELES (AP) - James Gandolfini "was a genius." That's what "Sopranos" creator David Chase says. Gandolfini died yesterday while in Rome on vacation. He was 51. No cause of death was given by HBO or Gandolfini's managers. Gandolfini won three Emmys for his role as Tony Soprano on the ground-breaking HBO series. Sopranos co-star Lorraine Bracco says she's "utterly heartbroken." Another Sopranos co-star, musician Steven Van, says the "world has lost one of the greatest actors of all time."
