“Oz: The Great and Powerful” stayed on top of the movie box office for the second weekend in a row amidst soft competition. “Oz” had a very strong $42.2 million giving it a grand total of $145 million for two weeks in release.
Halle Berry in the new film about a kidnapping and a killer, “The Call,” came in second with $17.1 million.
“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” underperformed its projections and finished in third place its opening weekend with just $10.3 miilion, about $9 million less than expected. The movie’s big name cast of Steve Carell, Alan Arkin, Jim Carrey and Oscar winner Steve Buscemi did not seem to have much drawing power.
“Jack the Giant Slayer” was fourth with $6.2 million and “Identity Thief” came in fifth with $4.5 million. For more statistics on the weekend box office, click on the link below.
