Weekend Box Office: Cruise Scampers His Way to the Top


Your weekend box office:

1. Oblivion - $38.2 million. Looks like Cruise has still got that movie star magic of there not being any other new films to see this weekend.

2. 42 - $18 million, still performing well thanks to strong word of mouth. Specifically, the words of co-star Harrison Ford's mouth shouting at Chewbacca.

3. The Croods - $9.5 million, dropping only 28% to hold on to the third spot yet again. America's love of watching a repulsive neanderthal family has thus far netted the film $155 million and largely kept TLC on the air.

4. Scary Movie 5 - $6.3 million. Not a good second weekend, but still not as bad as you want it to be.

5. G.I. Joe: Retaliation - $5.8 million for what's likely the film's final week in the top five. Pain & Gain opens Friday and will assumedly take out G.I. Joe, part of The Rock's continuing cycle of re-devouring himself for protein.
