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.
