Tom Cruise wins box office weekend

‘Oblivion’ tops 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.
