'Oz the Great and Powerful' Tops This Weekend's Box Office
Sam Raimi's Oz the Great and Powerful opened this weekend with a very strong $80.3 million, making it the third highest March opening of all time. The film also earned an estimated $69.9 overseas, bringing its global total to just about $150.2 million. Against a budget of around $200 million, that's not a massive opening, but it's definitely well on its way to making Disney some money.
The other major opening, Dead Man Down with Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace, brought in an estimated $5.1 million with a $30 million budget.
Here are the weekend's numbers, via Rentrak:
- Oz The Great and Powerful $80.3 million
- Jack the Giant Slayer $10 million
- Identity Thief $6.3 million
- Dead Man Down $5.4 million
- Snitch $5.1 million
- 21 and Over $5.1 million
- Safe Haven $3.8 million
- Silver Linings Playbook $3.7 million
- Escape From Planet Earth $3.2 million
- The Last Exorcism Part II $3.1 million
As a brief sidenote, it's great to see that Silver Linings Playbook is still making money. Despite the Oscar nominations and wins, it still feels like that movie is criminally under-recognized.
