The producers of Oz the Great and Powerful are breathing a sigh of relief after their big-budget flick brought in $150 million domestically and abroad over opening weekend. The film is a prequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz. It cost a reported $200 million to make and is currently No. 1 the box office, ahead of Jack the Giant Slayer, which turned out to be a costly bust.
