I keep saying that eventually people will tire of comic book super hero movies and will long for more adult movies again about people interacting with people, and I keep getting proved wrong.

Though Pain and Gain was the No 1, it’s not the most important box office news this weekend.

Oblivion proves once again the importance of the overseas market. The film opened this week at No. 1, as expected, with $38 million more than the $30 million projected number that was predicted. However the film also raked in, in the foreign territories where it opened last week, some $112 million.

I was going to say “42 hits a home run” but that would have been TOO obvious.

Of course, as excepted G.I. Joe: Retaliation was No.1 this weekend, though not as big as some analysts expected. And The Croods, not surprisingly, after a strong opening last week, held on to the No. 2 slot.

No surprise, The Croods took the number one slot this week, which is good news for DreamWorks, which hasn’t had much box office success with their animated films lately, such as their disappointing Rise of the Guardians.

No surprise that Oz The Great and Powerful was No.1 again this weekend. But what was more surprising was the much stronger than expected b.o. opening for the Halle Berry thriller, The Call, which came in second.

True, the film hasn't gotten great reviews (The N.Y. Times review was especially brutal) and one could argue it's nothing but CGI overkill, but that didn't stop people from going to see Oz The Great and Powerful this weekend.
