Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful performed to expectation, scoring $80.2 million at the weekend box-office and turning in the highest opening weekend of 2013 so far. As of right now, the film has scored a massive $150.2 million worldwide and that's without numbers from China and France. Looking at the domestic number, 53% of the tickets sold were for 3D showings, including 10% in IMAX, which puts that $80 million number in a little more perspective considering more than half of the tickets sold were sold at a premium rate. It will be interesting to see how Oz performs next weekend as it did earn a "B+" CinemaScore rating, though that's exactly what Jack the Giant Slayer earned only to watch its earnings plummet this weekend against Oz, dropping 63% from its opening weekend to bring in only $10 million. The weekend's other new wide release was Dead Man Down starring Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace and Terrence Howard »
