The St. Patrick's Day weekend box office opens with several big-name stars.

In the thriller The Call, Halle Berry plays an emergency operator who receives a call from a kidnapped teenage girl named Casey (Abigail Breslin). Berry's character, Jordan, must figure out how to save her from being murdered by a lunatic played by Michael Eklund.

For comedic relief, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone stars Steve Carell as the title character and Steve Buscemi as Anton Marvelton -- two superstar magicians in Las Vegas -- who take great pleasure in their fame. That is, until Steve Haines (Jim Carrey), a street magician, starts drawing attention away from them when he introduces new magic tricks. Don Scardino's comedy also stars James Gandolfini, Olivia Wilde and Alan Arkin.
