Since most experts had expected Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful” to once again rule the weekend box office, the race for second place became the one to watch at the ticket booth.
In the battle between the two wide debuts of the weekend, it appeared that Steve Carell and Jim Carrey’s magician comedy “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” had the edge over Halle Berry in “The Call,” but the box office results do no lie. “The Call” finished relatively far ahead of “Burt Wonderstone,” with the former taking in $17 million, ahead of the latter’s $10 million. Incredible, it was not.
But the real story of the weekend was found on art house screens. Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” made $270,000 on just three screens, making for an insane per theater average of $90,000. The film goes wide next week, and we will be eagerly anticipating those results.
