'Oz' Takes Box Office, Halle Berry Takes Phone Calls in a Wig


Your weekend box office:

1. Oz: The Great and Powerful - $42.2 million, a strong second weekend that already gives the film over $145 million domestic. Turns out it was a pretty good idea to update James Franco with coattails.

2. The Call - $17.1 million, exceeding all expectations for a film in which Halle Berry accepts phone calls in a wig.

3. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone - $10.3 million. Sorry, Steve Carell, but the world will not see you make light of professional illusionists.

4. Jack the Giant Slayer - $6.2 million. Kids just don't flock to Stanley Tucci movies like they used to.

5. Identity Thief - $4.5 million. Spoiler: Melissa McCarthy ends up being the thief.
