"Lions for Lambs," the first feature released by United Artists since it's been under Cruise control, also debuted this weekend with $6.7 million.It's true: We're officially tired of Hollywood blowhards lecturing us on foreign policy.
Tom Cruise stars in the war-on-terror drama along with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.
"The war is officially over at the box office," said Bock. "The [war] genre is really tired right now."
This is the first time in 15 years that a movie starring Cruise has not opened at No. 1.
