Oz: The Great and Powerful blew its way into the top box office spot for the second week in a row, earning $42.2 during its second week of release. After only 10 days of release, Oz has earned a whopping $145 million, making Sam Raimi’s magical film the highest grossing film of 2013 thus far.
Halle Berry’s new thriller, The Call, did better than expected bringing in $17.1 million during its opening weekend. Pretty impressive considering the film was released in fewer than 600 theaters and had a budget of only $13 million.
Warner Brother’s continued its streak of movie flops with Steve Carell’s latest comedy, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. The film couldn’t conjure up more than $10.3 million over the weekend, earning it third place in the box office. This latest offering by WB will need to find a few more tricks up its sleeve if it hopes to see a decent profit from its estimated production budget of $30 million.
And bringing in the rear were Jack the Giant Slayer and the still popular comedy, Identity Thief. Jack came in fourth with $6.5 million in earnings, bringing its three week total to $53.9 million. Meanwhile, Identity Thief brought in $4.5 million, making it 2013’s second highest grossing film with a total of $123.7 million since its release.
