Tom Cruise’s ‘Knight and Day’ drops 8.7% in one day

By Roger Friedman Tom Cruise is not having a good week. “Knight and Day” dropped 8.7% from Wednesday to Thursday, its second day of release. That’s the biggest single drop in top 10– and all the other movies have been out for a week or more.

Something is turning people off to “K&D” in a big way. It did only $3.4 million on Thursday, which means a long, hot weekend is beckoning.

At the same time, for example, “Toy Story 3″ dropped only 3%, “Karate Kid” 5.9%, and “Shrek 1000″ was up 10%. Even relative dogs like “Sex and the City 2,” “Get Him to the Greek,” and “Killers” were up a little. Of all things, “Robin Hood” was even up 14%!
