(Newser) Oz the Great and Powerful is sitting atop the box office for a second weekend in a row, easily topping Steve Carell's floundering The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. Oz took in $42.2 million this time around for a domestic total of $145 million, while the Hollywood Reporter notes that the "dismal" Wonderstone was essentially "DOA" with a mere $10.3 million. Halle Berry, however, had an unexpectedly good weekend with her thriller, The Call, which brought in $17.1 million. And Oz star James Franco had more good news, as his buzzy Spring Breakers pulled in $270,000—in just three locations.

Mistakenly went to see Wonderstone, horrible movie and every funny joke was in the trailer. I want my money back. Guess this is payback for when the wife and I sneak into a second movie at the megaplex.

"Oz the Great and Powerful is sitting atop the box office for a second weekend in a row, easily topping Steve Carell's floundering ( w.w. ) The Incredible Burt Wonderstone." The word is: FOUNDERING, not "floundering"! Choose the right word, you lame excuse for a writer, or take a remedial course in English.
