Oz Tops Second Weekend, while Burt Wonderstone Fails to Find Magic

Oz The Great and Powerful easily topped the box office in it's second weekend of release, with about $42.2 million.  Meanwhile, Steve Carrell's and Jim Carrey's The Incredible Burt Wonderstone underperformed so much ($10 million), that it had to settle for third place behind The Call (which over-performed to the tuned of $17.1 million).  It was rather shocking that Burt Wonderstone did so poorly, especially with Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey teaming up.  The C+ cinemascore probably didn't help.  Well, the brightside to this, is that Burt Wonderstone won't be a huge flop because it only cost $30 million, compared to other films of this nature.  It probably won't even end up on the biggest flops of the year list, but maybe on the huge disappointments list.

Oz The Great and Powerful is now the biggest movie of 2013 ($145 million), domestically, beating out Identity Thief's $123.7 million.
