FIRST NUMBERS: 'Oz' Opening Weekend Should Surge Past $15 Million
on March 10, 2013
Numbers are still coming in, but Oz: The Great and Powerful is averaging just under $5 million per day in Russia over the weekend, which when combined with the nearly $2 million it made during Thursday shows should drive the total opening haul past $15 million. That alone is almost enough to rank it as one of the country's top 20 grossers of the year. (Last year's #20, Brave, made a total of $16.1 million.) Expectations for Oz are higher, but the film seems likely to follow the arc of last summer's Men in Black III, which launched to $16.9 million in Russia and went on to make a total of $36.5 million.
