'Oz' Reigns At Box Office Second Week In A Row
Halle Berry Takes Second With Thriller 'The Call'
James Franco made movie magic twice this weekend. The actor scored the top spot at the box office with Oz The Great And Powerful ($42.4 million) and made another unexpected success with Spring Breakers, which made a startling debut in limited release.
Oz The Great and Powerful, Disney's prequel to the classic book by L. Frank Baum, took the top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row, bringing its cumulative domestic total to $145 million.
The film, which stars Franco as the young wizard, and Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams as sister witches, has a 10-day worldwide total of $281.8 million.
Spring Breakers might not have had the same haul, but it still made quite a debut. The movie, which stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens as bikini-clad robbers and Franco as a tattooed thug named Alien, played in only three theaters and yet grossed a whopping $270,000.
Finishing in second place this weekend was the thriller The Call with $17.1 million. In it Halle Berry stars as a 911 dispatcher who gets caught up in a terrifying kidnapping. The film is Berry's best opening performance at the box office since 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone -- Steve Carell and Jim Carrey's farce about dueling magicians -- made a disappointing debut in third place this weekend with just $10.3 million.
Rounding out the top five at the box office were Jack the Giant Slayer with $6.2 million ($53.9 million) and the comedy Identity Thief, with $4.5 million ($123.7 million).
