Divorce Unlikely to Hurt Tom Cruise at the Box Office
Today’s news that Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from Tom Cruise is a sad turn of events in what has otherwise been an incredible year for Cruise. We recently ranked Cruise as the ninth most powerful person on our Celebrity 100 list. Thanks to Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, residuals and upfront money for some other big films, we estimate Cruise earned $75 million between May 2011 and May 2012.
Those stats represented a big career comeback for Cruise who in the last five years has struggled a bit at the box office. In 2006 the third Mission: Impossible movie didn’t live up to expectations bringing on “only” $400 million at the box office. That coupled with Cruise’s erratic behavior around his new relationship with Holmes (couch jumping anyone?) and some embarrassing Scientology videos hurt Cruise from a publicity standpoint and at the box office. Movies like Lions for Lambs and Valkyrie were far from blockbusters.
But now, Cruise seems to be back in Hollywood’s good graces. (A $700 million box office will do that.) Could a divorce put the brakes on Cruise’s hot career?
It seems unlikely, unless some really ugly stuff comes out in the divorce proceedings. Cruise’s current film, Rock of Ages, hasn’t done that well at the box office but Cruise has been universally praised for his work as rocker Stacee Jaxx. Cruise has already filmed his next movie, Jack Reacher, which hits theaters this fall. The film is a smaller-budgeted movie about a homicide investigator.
After that Cruise returns to big-budget blockbusters with Oblivion which is currently shooting in New Orleans. The Universal sci-fi film, which stars Cruise as a soldier sent to destroy an alien race, is slated to hit theaters in April.
Those projects show that studios still have a lot of faith in Cruise and his ability to attract viewers around the globe. If those films flop though, it will do much more damage to his career than a divorce.June 30, 2012 at 4:44 am #441888
Who cares?June 30, 2012 at 7:40 am #441889

Unless she ends up unlucky like Mimi Rogers.July 2, 2012 at 1:00 am #441891
I can’t wait for somebody to write a tell-all book in a few years. Maybe Katie will be allowed to have her own emotions now!July 2, 2012 at 9:15 pm #441892
Good for Katie! Love that she is looking out for her daughter.July 3, 2012 at 5:38 am #441893
Who will be the next for tom then??July 4, 2012 at 4:19 pm #441894
The Thetans must be livid!?
What will become of Tom and David Beckham and what has become of Tom’s indoctrinated children – Isabella and Connor? Are they allowed out unaccompanied one wonders? Did you read the explosive article in Hollywood Reporter. Suggests Scientology is going all soft on us, what with recent defectors who are telling all! Oh my! There used to be a Scientology building near me where they’d try to drag you in off the street to do a “personality” test where one and all failed. I was incensed! Then in order to get a personality, they would suggest you “buy” some rather expensive “therapy”. These religious born again, culty thingmajigs are always about the almighty buck, tything and such. And it’s usually the po ones that give it too! And it’s taken quite willingly I’m sure, horrid creatures that they are. How did the likes of Cruise (and Travolta and others I daresay) get involved in this hullaballoo?! Most odd if you ask me.
At any rate, interesting if the lithe Katie Holmes is instrumental in bringing Hubbard’s scam to its knees.July 4, 2012 at 9:13 pm #441895
The son was last seen twitting homophobic stuff, the daughter is sometimes spotted in the seedier areas of downtown LA. A discredit to both Cruise and Kidman (the latter not seeming to be into the adoption thing that much).
A close friend has an apartment which Cruise owned pre-marriage. Since being with Holmes, it has become a main residence. He says that Suri is indeed one of the unhappiest looking children he has ever seen, and Holmes always seemed unreal and distracted. (She now has another apartment elsewhere in Manhattan).
With look, this will further damage the blackmailing, anti-gay, anti-science racket that is Scientology.
