Disney's "Oz the Great and Powerful" dominated the box office in its second week, taking in an estimated $42.2 million and raising its overall domestic total to more than $145 million.
Among the newcomers, The Call exceeded expectations, while The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was far from incredible. Overall, the Top 12 earned an estimated $97.3 million this weekend, which is about even with the same period last year.
Oz added $42.2 million in its second outing for a 10-day total of $145 million. That's a 47 percent drop from last weekend, which is about on par with Alice in Wonderland's 46 percent decline at the same point.
The Call took second place with an estimated $17.1 million. That's way above 2007 Halle Berry thriller Perfect Stranger ($11.2 million).
But "Burt Wonderstone," which was in 3,160 theaters, pulled just $10.3 million out of its box-office hat. That's about $5 million less than analysts projected for the PG-13 film, produced by New Line and BenderSpink for an estimated $30 million.
