BOX OFFICE: OBLIVION Looks Set For A $60.5 Million Weekend Internationally
After opening in the UK and several other international territories over the last few days, Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion has found box office success ahead of its release in North America next Friday. Hit the jump for further details!
Deadline reports that Oblivion has opened at #1 in 48 of the 52 international territories it was released in yesterday (although it opened in the UK on Wednesday). Friday's gross is an estimated $13.1 million, giving it a current total of $23.1 million. That means it's on course for $60.5 million for the weekend. It broke records in Russia with an opening of $1.5 million (the biggest of 2013 so far), while it has since made $3.2 million, making it Tom Cruise's biggest opening ever in that country. Oblivion opens in North America and seven other international territories next weekend. It's not exactly the kind of film which lends itself to a sequel, but if it is a success domestically, that will certainly help increase the odds of Joseph Kosinski's sequel to TRON: Legacy moving ahead!

Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.
Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.
Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautifulstranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.
