Science Has Proven The More Tom Cruise Runs In a Film The Better It The Movie Does

The more Tom Cruise runs in a movie, the better it does at the box office. That's not a bold or incorrect statement, that's Science with a capital "S." Rotten Tomatoes did the math, and concluded that films where Tom Cruise runs do much better at the box office than ones where he doesn't at all, and it's a hilarious coincidence that you have to see to believe. For example, here's his top ten films and the distance he runs in all of them:

Mission: Impossible III” — 3,212 feet

“Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” — 3,066 feet

War of the Worlds” — 1,752 feet

“Minority Report” — 1,562 feet

The Firm” — 1,241 feet

Edge of Tomorrow” — 1,065 feet

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” — 1,051 feet

The Mummy” — 1,022 feet

“Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation” — 1,007 feet

Vanilla Sky” — 832 feet

Need even more evidence? Tom Cruise does zero running in Valkyrie which, regardless of what you think of it, didn't do to well at the box office.

20 Crazy Details Behind The Making Of Edge Of Tomorrow

Although Edge of Tomorrow had one of the most unique and interesting stories we've ever seen in a sci-fi, the story behind the making of this movie is almost as intriguing.

After learning more about the huge amount of work that went into making Edge of Tomorrow, it becomes clear that the people behind this movie went through quite a journey. It must have been an absolute blast to be a part of the fun, but this ride had its ups and downs as well.

There were some very unique things to be taken into consideration with this particular movie. The armored exosuits were obviously very difficult to create and wear, causing some actors to literally break down and cry. Because the entire story took place over the course of a single day, changes in weather made shooting impossible in some situations. And, of course, like with any action movies,

There’s Real Math to Prove That Tom Cruise Movies Are Better When He Runs in Them

There’s Real Math to Prove That Tom Cruise Movies Are Better When He Runs in Them
Tom Cruise is in on the joke. The actor’s Twitter bio notes that he’s been “running in movies since 1981,” and indeed it’s what he’s best known for doing onscreen. To mark the release of “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” the folks at Rotten Tomatoes have put together a study suggesting that, the more Cruise runs in his movies, the better they are.

They did so using what sounds like painstaking methodology, counting “every instance of Cruise’s running on screen, in seconds, and then calculated the distances ran by assuming he is clocking a six-minute mile (14.6 feet per second).”

The average Tomatometer of movies in which Cruise doesn’t run at all — and there are only four, namely “Magnolia,” “Lions for Lambs,” “Tropic Thunder,” and “Valkyrie” — is a respectable 63.5%. Those in which he runs anywhere from one to 500 feet are a little bit lower, at 61.05%; clocking in ever-so-slightly

’Mission Impossible – Fallout’: How Christopher McQuarrie Mastered Directing Action

’Mission Impossible – Fallout’: How Christopher McQuarrie Mastered Directing Action
Christopher McQuarrie has worked with Tom Cruise for the last 12 years as a screenwriter, and first directed him in “Jack Reacher” before taking over the “Mission: Impossible” franchise. He’s often talked about the vital role Cruise plays in the storytelling and script structure. McQuarrie believes Cruise’s imprint on his films is not linked to a specific onscreen persona, but rather his insistence that every decision works toward increasing the audience’s emotional clarity.

What is so impressive about “Mission Impossible – Fallout” is that as an action director, McQuarrie brings this concept to another level. The extended action set pieces in “Fallout” delivers the jaw-dropping practical stunts we have come to expect from the franchise, but more importantly they are imbued with story and increase our emotional involvement. IndieWire recently sat down for an extended interview with McQuarrie as part of Filmmaker Toolkit Podcast, and posed the question: How

The Stars of the New 'Charmed' Reveal to Us Why You Should Watch This Reboot

The faces may have changed on Charmed, but the premise is most definitely the same: three sisters, who have lost their mother, discover that they are actually “The Charmed Ones,” a trio of witches whose combined powers are designed to protect humanity from a wide variety of demons. Whereas the sisters in the original 1998-2006 series were played by Shannen Doherty (later replaced by Rose McGowan), Holly Marie Combs, and Alyssa Milano, this version stars Madeleine Mantock as Macy Vaughn, Melonie Diaz as middle sister Melanie “Mel” Vera, and Sarah Jeffery as youngest sister Margarita “Maggie” Vera. (Photo Credit: Getty Images) Following their mother’s death, and Macy’s arrival, they are told the truth about themselves, and discover they each have a special power: Macy's is telekinesis, Mel can freeze time, and Maggie has the power of reading the thoughts of others.

‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ reviews: Critics say it may be the best of the franchise, and one of the best of the year
The reviews are in for “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” and perhaps surprisingly they’re not only good, but great. It’s rare for movie franchises to get better with age, but this latest installment of Tom Cruise‘s spy franchise, which started way back in 1996 with the original film directed by Brian De Palma, has gotten by far the highest MetaCritic and Rotten Tomatoes scores in franchise history.

As of this writing the film has an 86 rating on MetaCritic based on 54 reviews, and a near perfect 98% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on more than 170 reviews. The Rt consensus says the film “lives up to the ‘impossible’ part of its name by setting yet another high mark for insane set pieces in a franchise full of them.” And those aren’t just great reviews for a summer blockbuster, they’d also be the envy of most Oscar contenders. To compare, the reigning Best Picture champ,

The Metal Gear Solid director has an interesting take on the quality of existing video game movies

Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who is working on a live action movie adaptation of Metal Gear Solid, believes that there are currently some excellent video game movies.

The history of video game movies is pretty rough, there aren’t many good examples of great films being made with games as their source material, though that hasn’t stopped filmmakers from trying to buck the trend.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of Kong: Skull Island, will be giving it his best shot when he brings the classic video game Metal Gear Solid to the big screen, but the director already believes that great video game movies exist. His explanation isn’t what you might think:

“I think that what’s important is trying to translate the gameplay. But also I actually do think that there are incredible video game films. They just happen to not be based on video games, “Vogt-Roberts told Screen Rant. “Like if you think about Snowpiercer,

After a Decade of Tom Cruise Blockbusters, Christopher McQuarrie Wants to Return to the Indies He Abandoned
Christopher McQuarrie won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for “The Usual Suspects” 22 years ago, but it wasn’t necessarily smooth sailing on his path to directing “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” which with its near universal praise and enormous box office projections places him clearly amongst the elite action directors working in Hollywood today.”I learned a lot between my first and second film [as a director], especially in that there were 12 years between “The Way of the Gun” and “Jack Reacher,” seven of which I didn’t get anything made,” said McQuarrie in an interview with IndieWire. “I was really struggling and was forced to confront what I was doing wrong: ‘Why couldn’t I get something going? What did the business want from me that I wasn’t giving them?'”

McQuarrie said his career and life turned around when he stopped fighting to make the movies he wanted to make (but no

Metal Gear Solid Movie Script Is Finished, More Art Revealed

The Metal Gear Solid movie is one very important step closer to becoming a reality. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island) has been feverishly trying to get this movie made and is extremely passionate about the source material.
