Weekend Box Office: Number One Gives Way To Oblivion image
Big sci-fi action adventure starring Tom Cruise sounds like summer blockbuster fare, but Universal debuted it just a shade before the summer spectaculars hit. There was nothing spectacular about its $38 million opening, but it was still an applaudable start and without any competition the movie took an easy number one.

It was certainly good news for Cruise. The $38 million is the highest opening for one of his films since 2006's Mission: Impossible III.

Last week's champ 42 dropped only 35% and banked $18 million for a distant second place. But the movie with real staying power has been The Croods which, entering its fifth week in release, held on to the third place spot for the third week in a row. At $154 million in domestic sales it's a long shot to hit $200 million, but expect it to come close.
