The ComingSoon.net Box Office Report has been updated with studio estimates for the weekend. Click here for the full box office estimates of the top 12 films and then check back on Monday for the final figures based on actual box office.
Tom Cruise was back in a big way this weekend, starring in Joseph (TRON: Legacy) Kosinski's Oblivion (Universal) alongside Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo. Although an estimated opening of $38.1 million might not sound too impressive, it's actually Cruise's biggest opening for a movie since 2006's MIssion: Impossible III, directed by J.J. Abrams. That movie's sequel was a huge global blockbuster but it had a slower rollout into IMAX theaters before expanding nationwide, which was the original plan for Oblivion as well. Roughly 323 domestic IMAX theaters accounted for $5.5 million of the movie's domestic opening weekend.
