Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: April 21 2013

Tom Cruise reigns supreme in this week's box office, as moviegoers gear up for the beginning of summer.

In at number 1 is Oblivion (read our review) with $38 million. Tom Cruise's sci-fi flick opened strong in international markets last weekend and has duplicated that success here in the states.

Oblivion's opening weekend take is by no means record-breaking, but it is among the top 10 for April (#7 to be exact). We know that Tom Cruise will continue to get work, but hopefully this also means more good things are in store for director Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy).

Coming in at a somewhat distant number 2 is the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 with $18 million. Now at $54 million in domestic grosses, the film has surpassed its modest $40 million budget. It's also not showing any sign of letting up just yet, losing only 34% of its audience from last weekend.

The Croods continues to hold the number 3 spot hostage with $9 million this weekend. Fox's animated family film has grossed a whopping $154 million over 5 weeks.

Scary Movie 5 comes in at number 4 with $6 million, which brings its domestic total up to $22 million. In the past, the Scary Movie films have been good for a cool $50 million or so, but this one appears to be on the weaker side of the spectrum. Not bad enough to kill the franchise just yet, but definitely a sign audiences aren't necessarily as interested as they once were.

Rounding out the top 5 is G.I. Joe: Retaliation with $5 million. The film has now joined the $100 million club, and is up to $111 million in domestic grosses. And just in time for another Dwayne Johnson movie (Pain and Gain) next weekend.

The Place Beyond the Pines jumps up to the number 6 spot with $4.7 million. The drama, which stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, expanded to 1,542 screens over the weekend, and is now at $11 million in domestic grosses.

Coming in at number 7 is Olympus Has Fallen with $4.5 million. The Gerard Butler action film is now at $88 million. Can it cross $100 million before falling off the top 10?

Evil Dead is the number 8 film this weekend with $4.1 million. The very R-rated film has grossed $48 million over 3 weeks.

The 3D re-release of Jurassic Park is the number 9 film with $4 million even. Steven Spielberg's blockbuster now has a lifetime domestic gross of $395 million, thanks to an additional $38 million from this re-release.

And finally, at number 10, is Oz the Great and Powerful with $3 million. The reigning 2013 box office champion is at $223 million in domestic grosses.

[NOTE: These are only weekend box office estimates - based on Friday and Saturday ticket sales coupled with adjusted expectations for Sunday. Official weekend box office results will be released Monday, April 21st - at which time we'll update this post with any changes.]
