The Heat Hotter At Box Office Than White House Down

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy brought “The Heat” against Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx at the box office.

The Fox action-comedy starring the funny ladies as mismatched police detectives earned $40 million in its opening weekend, topping the $25.7 million debut haul of Sony’s “White House Down,” according to studio estimates Sunday.

“White House Down,” which features Tatum as a wannabe Secret Service agent and Foxx as the president, came in fourth place.
