    Tom Cruise's new sci-fi flick sent all the other films at the box office into, well, oblivion.

    While Oblivion was the only new wide release this weekend, it also marked one of Cruise's biggest opening weekends—his first No.1 film opening in years.

    Aside from the mega star's Mission: Impossible franchise, War of the Worlds is the only Cruise-headlining flick that has had a bigger weekend than the Joseph Kosinski-directed film.

    Meanwhile, last week's No.1 flick, 42, fell to the second spot this weekend with $18 million. The inspirational Jackie Robinson biopic has racked up an impressive $54 million domestically since its release just 10 days ago, signaling a hit for Warner Bros.

    The Croods nabbed the third spot with $9.5 million, Scary Movie 5 took fourth with $6.3 million, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation rounded out the top five with $5.8 million. 

    Ryan Gosling's drama The Place Beyond the Pines also fared well, rising from 10th to sixth place, after it expanded its box office reach this weekend, hitting more than 1,500 theaters.
