Fans sink into Cruise's Oblivion

2013-04-21 20:33
 

Los Angeles - Movie fans have slipped into Oblivion as the Tom Cruise science-fiction thriller leads Hollywood with a $38.2m debut.

That domestic haul comes on top of $33.7m Oblivion added in overseas markets, where the film began rolling out a week earlier. S

Sunday estimates raised the film's overseas total to $112m and its worldwide receipts to $150.2m.

Though many people were caught up in coverage of the manhunt for the suspect in the Boston Marathon explosions on Friday, it seems to have had little effect on how the film fared.

Oblivion took in $13.3m on opening day on Friday and $14.9m on Saturday.

That 12% increase is not unusual for big new releases, which typically do better business on Saturday than Friday.
