Tom Cruise’s ‘Oblivion’ wins weekend box office


The Tom Cruise sci-fi thriller ‘‘Oblivion’’ led Hollywood with a $38.2 million domestic debut, according to studio estimates Sunday. Although many people Friday were caught up in coverage of the manhunt for the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, it seems to have had little effect on how the film fared. “Oblivion’’ took in $13.3 million on opening day Friday and $14.9 million on Saturday. The manhunt mainly affected matinee business, with theaters reopening Friday night, after Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was taken into custody. The previous weekend’s top film, the Warner Bros. baseball drama ‘‘42,’’ held up well, slipping to second-place with $18 million in its second weekend.
