Box Office Breakdown: ‘Oz’ Overthrows ‘Giant Slayer’

Oz the Great and Powerful

The box office battle between the wizard and the giant slayer proved to be disappointing this weekend.

Movie-goers flocked to revisit the classic world of Oz in Sam Raimi's prequel to the classic 1939 film Wizard of Oz, Oz the Great and Powerful, which took in $80.2 million. Jack the Giant Slayer fell from its spot at number one last week with just $10 million - a staggering $70 million gap between the top two films. Identity Thief dropped one spot as well to number three with $6.3 million, while the new Colin Farrell film Dead Man Down debuted at number four with $5.3 million. Snitch rounds out the top five with $5.1 million.
