Tom Cruise proved once again that you just can't keep him down, as the ageless action star powered "Oblivion" to an easy win at the box office this weekend to the tune of $38.2 million according to Film.com.

Of course, some of the credit for "Oblivion's" strong performance goes to the fact that there weren't any other new releases this weekend. So having no competition certainly helped. And it also helped returning films like "42," which finished in second place with $18 million, and "The Croods," which hung onto the third spot with $9.5 million.

Still, a win is a win. And this is a win Cruise will be taking straight to the bank.
