Box Office: 'Oz' Goes for a Repeat at #1 Over 'The Call' and 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone'

Oz the Great and Powerful has all its ducks in a row for the repeat victory. I've got it coming in at $38 million even with a 53 percent drop. That dip represents something around Alice in Wonderland mixed with a healthy dose of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. If you've got a better line of reasoning, I'd love to hear it. The film stands at $167 million worldwide on a hefty $215 million budget so there's still plenty of work left to do for James Franco and company. Trivia: With a win this weekend, Oz the Great and Powerful will become the first two-time winner of 2013. The first newcomer of the weekend to consider is The Incredible Burt Wondersone, placed tentatively at $20.5 million. Steve Carrell should have broad-based appeal, or at least broad enough to move 3 million tickets. It also has the helpful PG-13 rating to enter the arena with, unlike the movie we're about to break down.
