Tom Cruise’s ‘Oblivion’ wins at the box office; 7 reality-warping sci-fi films


Tom Cruise won big at the box office this weekend as the sci-fi adventure Oblivion rocketed to No. 1 in its U.S. debut with an estimated $38 million haul.

In the year 2077, Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) works as a security repairman on an Earth left lifeless and destroyed after a war with aliens. Or so he thought.

Towards the end of his mission, Harper’s reality comes crashing down after he discovers a beautiful stranger (Olga Kurylenko), who in fact is just one of many, whom inhabit what he believed to be a dead planet.

The woman’s arrival triggers a chain of events that result in Harper’s nearly single-handed battle to save mankind.
