The global IMAX weekend gross for Oz The Great and Powerful is an estimated $12.2 million from 442 screens, which is second-best for a March opening (following Alice in Wonderland).

Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Slayer dropped to second place and 63% in ticket sales with $10 million. Having cost $195 million to make, the Warner Bros. release has reached just $43.8 million after two weeks in North America.

Universal comedy Identity Thief continued to perform well in its fifth weekend in third place, taking in an additional $6.3 million to push its total to $116.5 million. Starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, the R-rated movie costs only $35 million to make.

FilmDistrict's Dead Man Down opened in fourth place with $5.4 million from 2,188 theaters. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev, the thriller stars Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace.
