The Purge, a thriller/horror film made for about $3 million, took in almost $40 million this week, beating big-budget films like Fast & Furious 6, and The Internship.  LA Times film writer Rebecca Keegan breaks down the reasons why it was the little film that could.

And Warner Bros. is re-releasing its 1939 classic, The Wizard of Oz, in a 3-D version.  Film historians are aghast, but imagine seeing those creepy monkeys flying at you, or the Wicked Witch's nose right in your face.

On The Lot is our weekly look at the business of Hollywood, and airs every Monday on Take Two.
