Oz The Great And Powerful continued to dominate the box office with a first place finish and $42.2 million to add to its coffers. Halle Berry’s suspense thriller The Call, which had a production budget of just $13 million, exceeded expectations with $17.1 million and a #2 debut. The star power of middle aged actors Steve Carell and Jim Carrey did not translate into success for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, as the comedy had a sub-par opening with $10.3 million and a weak third place ranking.
Here’s this weekend’s top 10:
1. Oz The Great And Powerful – $42.2 million
2. The Call – $17.1 million
3. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone – $10.3 million
4. Jack the Giant Slayer – $6.22 million
5. Identity Thief – $4.519 million
6. Snitch – $3.5 million
7. 21 and Over – $2.62 million
9. Safe Haven – $2.5 million

One of Oz The Great And Powerful’s stronger facets lies in the close collaboration with James Franco and director Sam Raimi. The two previously worked together on the Spider-Man movies, and in the clip below Franco talks about how Raimi helped shaped Oz (Franco) in Oz The Great And Powerful.
