Sorry, Jackie Robinson!
Tom Cruise just proved that he can still send a movie to the top of the box office!
In fact, with the actor's latest sci-fi extravaganza, Oblivion, he secured himself one of his biggest opening weekend ever, as it pulled in a pretty impressive $38.1 million!

And that was when Dakota Fanning was still a child!
