WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Oz the Great and Powerful repeats atop the chart with 42.2 million -- and given the lukewarm reviews, the 47 percent drop is not bad.  Oz now has 145 million domestic and 281.8 total worldwide against a 215 million budget.  In an upset, The Call places with 17.1 million against a 13 million budget.  The Incredible Burt Wonderstone shows with a 10.3 million debut, and will probably just about break even on its 30 million budget (plus marketing costs, etc.). Jack the Giant Slayer takes the fourth slot with 6.2 million and a 53.9 million total against a 195 million budget; not even foreign receipts are helping much. Ouch.  Identity Thief rounds out the Top Five with 4.5 million and a hefty 123.7 million domestic against a 35 million budget.

THE UNITED STATES military's Africa Command warned that Nigeria-based Boko Haram is increasing its collaboration with al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and said some elements of Boko Haram are looking to attack the US and Europe.
