James Franco's Oz the Great and Powerful was again, you know, great and powerful at the weekend box office, grossing an estimated $42.2 million.
In its second weekend, Oz held very well. With some $282 million in the worldwide bank, the film is now even bigger than its reputed budget (which was very big).
The Call took second place with a $17.1 million Friday-Sunday. The thriller, made for a reported $15 million, was graded a B-plus by audiences polled by CinemaScore, and is Berry's biggest opener for a non-X-Men movie in nearly a decade, going all the way back to Gothika.
The reputedly $32 million Burt Wonderstone, playing on about 600 more screens than The Call, whiffed with $10.3 million. It is Carell's worst opener for a Carell comedy (so, no, not including the comedy-drama Seeking a Friend at the End of the World) since he became a big-screen star in The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
Burt Wonderstone's CinemaScore was just as discouraging: a C-plus.
Art-house moviegoers, meanwhile, were hot to see Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens shed their Disney ears. The actresses' R-rated indie thriller, costarring Franco, put up the weekend's biggest reported per-screen average, grossing $270,000 from three theaters.
Elsewhere, Silver Linings Playbook neared $125 million domestically and A Good Day to Die Hard topped $200 million internationally.
Here's a complete look at the weekend's top movies, per Friday-Sunday studio estimates and stats as compiled by Exhibitor Relations.
