There's a reason why action films want to cast Tom Cruise - one of today's highest-paid actors - and the numbers from his latest film's weekend debut certainly spell it out.
His futuristic sci-fi flick Oblivion took the number one spot at the box office this weekend with $38.1 million, bumping down last week's top film 42 down to second place with $18 million. The animated family film The Croods stayed put at number three with a solid $9.5 million while Scary Movie 5 fell two spots to number four with $6.2 million. G.I. Joe: Retaliation rounded out the top five with $5.7 million.
