Oz the Great and Powerful Debuts to Massive $80 Million Opening Weekend



Oz the Great and Powerful dominated the weekend box office, scoring the third-biggest March domestic opening in history.

The pseudo-prequel to The Wizard of Oz, starring James Franco, earned approximately $80.3 million in its debut, giving the fantasy-adventure a gigantic win over the field.

Last weekend’s champ, Jack the Giant Slayer, slid to the #2 spot with $10 million, while the Jason Bateman-Melissa McCarthy comedy Identity Thief continued to do solid business with $6.3 million in its fifth week of release.

Jack the Giant Slayer debuted at the top of another relatively weak box office weekend.

The fantasy adventure, starring Nicholas Hoult, earned $28 million for first place.

That was enough to comfortably put it ahead of second position finisher Identity Thief, which had $9.7 million in ticket sales.

Nabbing third was 21 & Over, which had a take of $9 million.
