Oblivion took the top spot in the Australian box office this weekend. The Tom Cruise vehicle premiered with a $3.4 million gross in 353 screens, scoring the highest per-screen average of the weekend. The Croods fell to second place in its third week, dipping very slightly (-22%) from its previous weekend. The animated film is on the verge of grossing a $17 million cume, already outgrossing Oz: The Great and Powerful despite being released three weeks later. Scary Movie 5 had a stronger opening than its $1.2 million gross indicates, scoring the second-highest per-screen average of the weekend. Warm Bodies, the weekend's other new release, grossed $1 million and sits awkwardly in the middle of the top ten. Escape from Planet Earth and Zambezia both expanded this week and saw a significant rise in business. The films have grossed $1.2 and $1 million, respectively.
