Oblivion was the highest grossing film in the global box office for the second consecutive weekend. The success of Tom Cruise's latest blockbuster did not come out of the weekend unchallenged. Domestic films provided tough competition in Brazil (Vai Que Da Certo), France (Les Profs), South Korea (Legendary Fist), Mexico (Nosotros Los Nobles), Russia (Legend No. 17). The sci-fi film was also dethroned in several key markets, raising the possibility of a steeper drop in future weeks. How well will Oblivion fare in its third week with the upcoming overseas roll-out of Iron Man 3 this weekend?
