As of the end of the day Wednesday, the month-to-date gross is less than $6 million shy of becoming the largest September ever. Much of the month's $620+ million is thanks to the record performance from It, which has grossed over $272 million domestically and $500 million globally. The month should become the largest September ever by the end of day today and this weekend offers one last chance to add to the total with new releases including Tom Cruise's American Made and Sony's Flatliners remake hitting theaters. Mojo's weekend forecast has the top twelve bringing in around $89 million, which would mean the month is likely to finish over $690 million, though just a bit shy of becoming the first September ever to hit $700 million. A pair of holdovers are likely to repeat atop the weekend box office beginning with Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which should pull in somewhere around $19.5 million, again finishing »

Tom Cruise is an award-winning actor, producer, and, in the 2008 movie Valkyrie, a German army officer with a huuuuuuge butt. Back in August, Twitter user iluvbutts247 aptly called out the actor's poppin' backside in an early scene of the movie, wondering if Cruise wore pads or was stuffing some junk in his trunk to appear larger. I mean, clearly iluvbutts247 knows their stuff, so it was no surprise when the tweet went completely viral. It's been nine years since the movie premiered, but the bootylicious tweet sent the internet ablaze with fans speculating if his perfectly plump ass was real or fake during the movie. hello, please, i present the theory that for one single shot in Valkyrie (2008), at 5:12, tom cruise wears a fake butt. observe: pic.twitter.com/Tw6yTbsQUe - swizz keats (@iluvbutts247) August 20, 2017 It wasn't until recently that Tom addressed the rumors, revealing that his junk was, »

[[tmz:video id="0_o5h5kyhs"]] Tom Cruise is a real-life action hero on the set of his movies -- but his ass is even realer ... according to one of his co-stars. We got Annabelle Wallis -- who starred alongside Tom in "The Mummy" this summer -- and she confirmed 2 stories about him all in a matter of seconds.

Let's get to the bottom of it: Did Tom Cruise really pad his bottom in Valkyrie? In August, a Twitter user shared a Gif of the actor during an action sequence in the 2008 film and theorized that he wore a "fake butt." The tweet went viral, and Christopher McQuarrie—who co-wrote and produced Valkyrie and has worked with Cruise on six other films—fanned the flames, writing, "At 12k retweets and climbing, why would I ever add clarity to this thread?" Many Twitter users debated why Cruise's butt looked especially bubbly in that particular scene, but the actor himself never commented on the silly rumors—until this week, that is. As he was doing press for American Made, Cruise told »
Tom Cruise is known for making his movies as authentic as possible by doing all his stunt work himself (even when it takes a serious toll on his body). So when rumors surfaced that he possibly wore a fake prosthetic butt in the 2008 film Valkyrie, all he could do was laugh it off.
This past summer a tweet went viral when an eagle-eye viewer took a screen shot of Cruise’s backside in the film, claiming it looked noticeably larger in one quick scene.

In his latest film, “American Made,” Tom Cruise regularly flashes his bare rear end as part of a running gag, and that led people to ask a question that’s been on his fans’ minds for some time now … does the action star use a prosthetic butt? In Cruise’s 2008 film, “Valkyrie,” there’s a freeze frame shot of Cruise getting up from a pile of rubble that has left moviegoers wondering whether the actor did a lot of squats to get ready for the role or if he was packing some extra padding in his trousers. When asked by Screen. »

One of the internet's favorite conspiracy theories has just been put to bed. Or did it just get more interesting? Either way, Tom Cruise has officially responded to the rumors that he wore a fake butt prosthetic in the 2008 war movie, Valkyrie. According to the actor himself, the butt that everyone online seems to think is fake is 100 percent, totally authentic. That is pure Tom Cruise posterior.
Tom Cruise is currently promoting his latest movie, American Made, which is set to arrive in theaters this weekend. While speaking with Screen Rant about the upcoming Doug Liman-directed biopic, Cruise was finally asked about the fake butt rumors point blank. Not only did he deny that he was wearing some kind of butt padding or prosthetic in Valkyrie, but he wasn't even aware of the rumors. Here's what he had to say about it.
"I have no idea. There was no prosthetic in Valkyrie. »
Every decade or two, Tom Cruise seems to be compelled to take part in a biopic. Back in the late 80’s, it was his Academy Award nominated turn in Born on the Fourth of July. About 20 years later, it was Valkyrie. Now, this week sees him back playing a real person with American Made, a look at Barry Seal, a pilot who nearly ended up bringing down the Reagan Administration with his drug running. It’s still close to action hero territory at times for Cruise, but compared to many of his recent outings, this is downright a prestige picture. He’s a great movie star, endlessly compelling in action flicks, but serious films always contain his best performances. The movie is a biopic, albeit an unconventional one. Barry Seal (Cruise) is an unhappy Twa pilot who ends up recruited by the CIA during the 1980’s. Monty ‘Schafer’ (Domhnall Gleeson) sees something in Barry, »

Back when Thor came out in theaters, everyone was a bit apprehensive. Marvel simply didn’t have the greatest track-record getting their works adapted to film (Yet). The first Iron Man film, at the time, was considered a bit of a “unicorn”. It was a solid film in its own right, and a massive step up for Marvel in terms of quality. Then Iron Man 2 happened. This, of course, led everyone to fear the worst for Thor’s first solo outing.
And how did it do? Not too bad, actually. The film has its detractors, sure, but Chris Hemsworth owned the part, and director Kenneth Branagh perfectly struck a balance between the mythological, and the banal. Thor: The Dark World fared about the same, critically. So what about Thor: Ragnarok, the Asgardian’s third solo adventure? Is there much connective tissue to the other films? According to director Taika Waititi, »

Tom Cruise’s tush is attracting Kardashian-level attention in at least one inquisitive corner of the internet.
An observant fan with the Twitter handle @iluvbutts247 posted a screenshot of the actor’s rear from the film Valkyrie on Monday, speculating about whether Cruise employed a prosthetic gluteus maximus in the scene.
“Hello, please, i present the theory that for one single shot in Valkyrie (2008), at 5:12, tom cruise wears a fake butt. observe,” he captioned the photo below:

Everyone in Hollywood knows Tom Cruise works his butt off. And speaking of the actor's butt, a Twitter user named @iluvbutts247 shared a screenshot from the 2007 movie Valkyrie earlier this week, which showed Cruise on crawling his hands and knees with his butt facing the camera. "hello, please, i present the theory that for one single shot in Valkyrie (2008), at 5:12, tom cruise wears a fake butt," @iluvbutts247 wrote. "observe." Afterward, people began to debate whether Cruise had padded his bottom to shoot the scene: A different Twitter user, @trismac, responded to @iluvbutts247 with a screenshot from another point in the scene, writing, "That's a weird angle.

Last week, we learned that Tom Cruise was injured on the set of ‘Mission Impossible 6‘. The accident happened while performing his own stunt (as he is well known to do), jumping form building to building. Although no official word was given at the time of the incident, Cruise reportedly sustained a great deal of damage to his foot. It was estimated at the time that actor/producer might need up to three months for his ankle to heal, at which time production would resume.
A few days ago, director Christopher McQuarrie (‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation‘) spoke with Empire about how the accident actually happened:
“The speculation was that Tom had somehow missed or fell short. The truth is that the stunt was never designed for Tom to jump from rooftop to rooftop which a) would have been pretty boring and b) when you see the actual shot you’ll understand how it was designed. »

Earlier this week, we reported on the news that Tom Cruise had injured himself while performing a stunt for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 6. The videos from TMZ saw the star jumping from one building to the next, while on harness, and in two takes, we saw him slam into the side. In one take, he hit the wall and then fell backwards the way he came, being held up by the harness, and in another, he manages to pull himself up, though when making his way back to the other side, he’s seen limping and accepting the assistance of the crew.
However, in a recent interview with Empire, the film's director, Christopher McQuarrie, put a stop to speculation that him slamming into the side of the building was the result of him "missing."

We reported earlier this week that Tom Cruise was injured on the set of Mission: Impossible 6, while performing a stunt where he jumped from one building onto another building. It was later confirmed that the injury was much more serious than imagined, with the action superstar breaking one of his ankles, with reports surfacing that production has been halted for four months. It seems that may not be the case entirely. While Tom Cruise will be recovering for an undetermined amount of time, production will still continue, according to director Christopher McQuarrie, who shed light on the production and the injury in a new interview. Here's what he had to say about the injury and how it happened.
"The speculation was that Tom had somehow missed or fell short. The truth is that the stunt was never designed for Tom to jump from rooftop to rooftop which a) would »
