            @therealGoku I'm somewhat of a Zombie fan as well. Although I had a sour taste in my mouth after Halloween 2. This movie was just bizarre in a bad way. Plot was boring and uninteresting. Not to mention yet again he forgets that his wife cannot act at all.

                @CoreyB at least u didnt insult Obilvion like @jonspidey07 just did

                @ghostman he was in war of the worlds since when

                @moviegeek it is pronounced ghost protocol

                  @moviegeek Tom Cruise's largest movie opening was for War of the Worlds with 64 million dollars. But you're right, it is his second best outside of the M:I Franchise.

                    @thedude1 how so? What was wrong with it? I like Rob Zombie but this movie looked way too creepy for me lol

                      After a horrible week here in Boston, MA, I took a nice break to go see Oblivion in Imax. I was surprisingly pleased! I really liked the movie and the scope. Tom Cruise is great and the special effects should be seen on the big screen! M83 did the score I believe and it didnt dissapoint! Cool original movie and you can only hope Kosinski keeps improving. (Improvement over Tron:Legacy)

                        I was disappointed in 'Oblivion'

                        it should have been better and not put me to sleep at the beginning

                        but I am hella excited for the next 2 weeks when 'Iron Man 3' finally opens :)

                          A good start for Oblivion. It made 38 million which was the upper end of estimates. Plus it's already made back it's budget thanks to overseas markets, and it has only been out for two weeks overseas just opened here in the US.

                            Was Lords of Salem a limited release or just flop miserably and not make it to the top 10?

                              I blame the editing of Oblivion and the script. Michael Arndt the man who will helm Star Wars episode 7 helped write it....good lord....I enjoyed the film mostly thanks to Tom Cruise's performance, the visuals and the music.

                                @superman81 That's the second best opening Tom Cruise has had outside of Mission: Impossible! It's a win, for sure.

                                And these grosses listed as still the old predictions.

                                  I got dragged by my family to see "Scary Movie 5" instead (which was a complete waste of time), but don't worry, I'll still make up the time to see "Oblivion" sometime.

                                    Lords of Salem was downright terrible. Should have just seen Oblivion.

                                      The movie was absolutely brilliant!

                                      Loved every minute.

                                        "Oblivion" was ok!! Very existential and clichéd! My Rating: C+!

                                          Sucks it only made 38 million. Not a good start but it is doing great over seas.
