Last weekend, 2013 saw the first blockbuster of the year, Oz the Great and Powerful, which debuted to $79.1 million. This weekend, two new films are being released: The Call and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. However, neither will be able to beat Oz.
Evan Almighty and Bruce Almighty (Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey) are reuniting for this funky little comedy called The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, something that looks a little like Blades of Glory. Carrell and Steve Buscemi will be sporting silly wigs, and funky costumes. Jim Carrey seems to be the show-stealing supporting actor in this film. It will draw a good audience, as Carrey has been in 12 $100 million movies and Carrell has had great box office legs since his break-out in The 40-Year Old Virgin.
Halle Berry is starring in the new thriller, The Call, and while many thrillers this year have disappointed this year, this has received a promising marketing kick. It looks like it will earn over $10 million.

1. Oz The Great and the Powerful: $43, 750, 000
