Coming off an excellent opening, Oz The Great and Powerful easily hung on to first place this weekend. Among the newcomers, The Call exceeded expectations, while The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was far from incredible. Overall, the Top 12 earned an estimated $97.3 million this weekend, which is about even with the same period last year.Oz added $42.2 million in its second outing for a 10-day total of $145 million. That's a 47 percent drop from last weekend, which is about on par with Alice in Wonderland's 46 percent decline at the same point. If Oz plays out at the same pace as Alice, it could be in line for a final tally over $230 million. The Call took second place with an estimated $17.1 million. That's way above 2007 Halle Berry thriller Perfect Stranger ($11.2 million), and also higher than similar titles Untraceable ($11.4 million) and Lakeview Terrace ($15 million). It was a bit off from Berry's 2003 thriller Gothika ($19.3 million »
