Tom was so much more interesting when he was reclusive and mysterious. Lately he's been running his mouth and we all realized he's a total zero. But since when has being stupid kept people off the big screen?

His antics hurt him with females the demographic group that had consistently supported his films but showed up in smaller numbers for "Mission: Impossible III."

That film is on track to gross $400 million worldwide, less than "Mission: Impossible," which grossed $456 million 10 years ago and the 2000 sequel "Mission: Impossible II " which brought in $546 million.

Brandon Gray, president and publisher of Box Office Mojo, an online box-office tracking service, said Cruise's erratic behavior leading up to the release of "Mission: Impossible III" did not help the marketing campaign, which was centered around his image.

He said the movie didn't perform as well as the first two because it never had a strong fan base to begin with.
When it starts costing money, that's when.

I thought it was kind of crap and of the 3 was easily the worse... which in my mind probably had more to due with less profit than cruise's image.

I liked a lot of his older movies like cocktail and Jerry MaGuire but he has flipped out and is reall making scientoligy look worse then it already is.
