  1. I disagree. They have to market the hell out of the big stunt, even if it's not the one that caused the injury. If anything people will wanna see the film a lot more.
  2. His American Made airplane stunt is his most badass to date. Schedule is not in danger. They already wrapped up more than a half, 2 months shooting left to do, can be easily done even if they don't start filming until January. If anything this news is great publicity and gives higher appreciation for Cruise. Maybe Paramount can market the hell out of the stunt come promo time.
  3. DK continues to dominate the weekdays. Longest streak on top since Fantastic Beasts. Probably loses its crown this weekend. The last film that reigned more than four weeks was Avatar.

    Cruise just did the most badass stunt ever for this film. For some reason the yahoo link didn't work, here is the main part: "It can be pretty hair-raising - flying extremely fast, small airplanes, low to the ground, is a dangerous environment to be in just on its own. Then, in the story, he’s throwing bales of cocaine out of the airplane, loading them up with guns, so every once in a while in thisscene he’s got to climb out of the cockpit and go to the back of the airplane to dump the cocaine out. “I’m flying alongside him in a helicopter filming, and that made a big impression on me – there’s nobody in the cockpit of the plane! Tom has gone to the back of the aircraft, and he’s alone in thatairplane. It’s one thing to have Tom Cruise alone in the airplane flying it – that’s already outrageous – now he’s alone and he’s not even in the cockpit so he’s gone beyond. It was already a stunt before he left the cockpit, it was already a serious stunt.
  5. Annabelle put up a fight but Dunkirk remains on top on Friday. DK £0.85m, Anna £0.7m. Atomic Bomb disappoints at #4, opening below Emoji which is having a decent hold. Will probably moss the top 3 even with 5-day. Shame, I enjoyed it a lot.
  6. Yea, both will do well. Will be interesting to see if Annabelle can challenge DK this weekend. Atomic Blonde has no shot, even with a 5-day opening.

  9. No stopping for DCU from now on, they have the upper hand in the comic battle with MCU.
  10. Agreed that it had a potential to do more but that doesn't mean 400m is bad. I mean it did more than Captain America, Star Trek, Pacific Rim, Prometheus and all those films got sequels. That said I don't think Cruise wanted a sequel anyway, regardless the gross. He's happy to do MI6, Top Gun and LDR sequels, so no time frame for a Mummy sequel anyway. He might pop up in future TDU films as a cameo.

    Agreed. I wouldn't put 600m past it if it does 150m in China.
