Jack Reacher

Tom Cruise with his suave charisma and all American looks packs a punch in the movie Jack Reacher. The movie Jack Reacher did not shove aside The Hobbit from the box office standings. Tom Cruise couldn’t push some hobbits aside from their solid position at the box office. The director of The Hobbit is Peter Jackson. The Hobbit managed to make 36.7 million dollars at the box office.

Tom Cruise in 2012

Tom Cruise is the top earner in the actors list with 75 million dollars. He can easily demand a 20 million dollars fee for a movie. This year was the year of sadness as he was divorced from Katie Holmes due to Scientology issues. There was a bump on the road due to couch jumping antics on Opera Winfrey Show. There were some leaks regarding Scientology. Also, Mission Impossible 3 could not hack the box office either. But in 2011, his movie Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol surely was a welcome success for him. That movie made 700 million dollars at the box office.

The Hobbit: Unmovable as a mountain

The Hobbit could be the biggest movie in 2012, even though it dropped to 57 percent from last week. It has already reached 434 million dollars at the global box office. With Jack Reacher, Tom Cruise had a bad year with personal and career woes attached.

The movie from Tom Cruise, Jack Reacher is still hanging around at 15.6 million dollars at this weekend. The audiences loved the film as it was an action film with thick plot and heavy duty action. The audiences awarded it as A cinemas movie. The crowd still did not show as anticipated. Tom Cruise is a crowd magnet but the movie contradicts that.

Mission Impossible made 30 million dollars in its opening weekend.  The same did not happen with Jack Reacher. The movie’s budget is quarter of what was of last Mission Impossible movie. At the end, the movie managed 695 million dollars. Now the focus is on Oblivion, which is Tom Cruise’s next venture. It’s a science fiction film, which will be released alongside Man of Steel.

Funny people 2009: A colossal failure

The director of Funny People is back and this time it is, This is 40. The signs are looking good for the movie as it is in the top five already. The movie Funny People did not even cover its production budget. This is 40 movie made 12 million for now and is placed third after Jack Reacher. At least, this movie covered its production budget unlike Funny People.

Hollywood is still releasing movies over the holiday as musical movie Les Miserables hits on Christmas day. Big names are in the film such as:

1: Anne Hathaway

2: Russell Crowe

3: Hugh Jackman

There is tremendous hype building around Les Miserables as Russell Crowe hits the cinemas after a long time. It will be interesting to see him sing alongside Hugh Jackman.

Also to hit the cinemas on Christmas day are Parental Guidance and Django Unchained.
