    Jackie Robinson tale '42' scores with $27.3M debut

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Baseball has scored a rare hit in Hollywood, while another American institution — Tom Cruise — has delivered his latest hit overseas.
    The Jackie Robinson tale "42" took in $27.3 million to claim the weekend box-office championship domestically, according to studio estimates Sunday.
    The film has yet to open overseas, where the sport is a harder sell. But Cruise knocked it out of the park with a $61.1 million international launch in 52 countries for his sci-fi thriller "Oblivion."

    Lol

    Not one complaint about the over usage of the N word?

    It's used way more times than in django and y'all were in an uproar about that, but this us a 'good movie'?
