Box Office: ‘Oz’ Holding Strong in Sophomore Session, on Track for $45 Million Frame

'Call' trumps 'Burt Wonderstone,' though weekend still likely down year-over-year

Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful” is looking at an admirable hold for its second frame, dropping about 45% for a three-day haul likely at or a little shy of $45 million. The Mouse’s magic maker earned $11.4 million domestically Friday.

This beat out new entries “The Call” from Sony-TriStar and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” from Warner Bros.-New Line, Friday’s second and third, respectively.

Though it’ll be far behind “Oz,” Sony’s “Call” is poised to possibly overperform, if only slightly. It outpaced “Burt Wonderstone” nearly two-to-one on Friday with $6.2 million, and is looking at a three-day take in the low-to-mid teens with an upside just shy of $20 million. The difference depends on whether or not the thriller resonates with African-American and Latino auds this weekend.

The box office’s other magician, “Burt Wonderstone,” earned $3.7 million Friday, looking at a gross just above $10 million through Sunday.

“Oz” is still doing OK business overseas, which will make it a worldwide victor in its soph sesh too. Next week, it faces competish with the power to dethrone it from FilmDistrict’s “Olympus Has Fallen,” Fox and DreamWorks Animation’s “The Croods” and Focus Features’ “Admission.”
