LOS ANGELES (AP) — Movie fans have slipped into “Oblivion” as the Tom Cruise sci-fi thriller leads Hollywood with a $38.2 million debut.

That domestic haul comes on top of $33.7 million “Oblivion” added in overseas markets, where the film began rolling out a week earlier. Sunday estimates raised the film’s overseas total to $112 million and its worldwide receipts to $150.2 million.

Though many people Friday were caught up in coverage of the manhunt for the suspect in the Boston Marathon explosions, 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. That 12 percent increase is not unusual for big new releases, which typically do better business on Saturday than Friday.
