Tom Cruise’s ‘Knight and Day’ is his worst performance since 1992

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Tom Cruise can only look at the box office results for “Knight and Day” and shudder.

The film will cross the $70 million mark this week. But it’s unlikely it will get to $75 million domestically. It’s his worst performance at the box office since “Far and Away” in 1992.

Even “Valkyrie” did better, with a total of $83 million. It would be hard to imagine “Knight and Day” ever getting close to that number.

Internationally, “K&D” has done better of course. Where English has not been a first language, audiences haven’t minded the travelogue vanity caper. The film has yet to open in the U.K., Spain, France or Italy. Cruise may get some action there. So far the box office abroad has come to just over $60 million.

But just think: “Inception” has made in four days what it’s taken “K&D” almost a month to rake in.

The only movie with which Cruise has been associated recently that’s done worse was “Lions for Lambs,” but that was a film that also featured Meryl Streep and Robert Redford in a kind of weird experiment.

    If LIONS did worse (and it did, by a lot, at a stunning $15 million), then you can’t say it’s his worst since 1992. You’re also overlooking 1999’s MAGNOLIA ($22.4 million) and EYES WIDE SHUT ($55.6 million). The former might not be a traditional Cruise vehicle, but the latter was totally on Cruise and Kidman’s collaboration with Kubrick. It’s way more of an experiment than LIONS. This also overlooks the 14 films Cruise has starred in since 1992 that surpassed the $100M mark (and some crossed the $200M mark). Doubt he has much reason for shuddering, Roger.

    He’s still a draw, regardless, but he’ll be asking for less money than the $20Mil or so that he normally gets. The cost of the K&D movie was probably inflated with his usual salary, so the next one he’s probably getting indie wages and a backend deal. And I agree with Sean O’Connell about the receipts….but you can say that about a lot of “seasoned” actors. Has anybody looked at the receipts for Al Pacino? Robert Deniro?
