First Place Space
Tom Cruise's latest, the sci-fi movie Oblivion,
took the top spot at the box office this weekend, with an excellent 37
million (all without 3D!). That positions the space epic to hold up
well in recent weeks, even as summer blockbusters begin to open.
Holding well was the Jackie Robinson biopic 42, which made 17.7 million this weekend. The Croods made another 9.2 million, followed by Scary Movie 5 with 6.1 million. G.I. Joe Retaliation made 5.7 million, but the most impressive numbers came from the drama The Place Beyond the Pines, which expanded again and grossed 4.9 million this weekend.
The sleeper action film Olympus Has Fallen made 4.4 million, followed by Evil Dead with 4.1 million. Rounding out the weekend were the 1993 classic Jurassic Park with 4 million, followed by Oz The Great and Powerful with 3 million.
Next weekend: will "Oblivion" stay in the top spot? Stay tuned...
