Box Office: Tom Cruise flick “Edge of Tomorrow” quietly crosses $100 million domestically
I did not see many non-film festival movies this summer but one of my favorites was Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.
It was a terrific action film with some great comic moments and very appealing performances from the two leads.
But as with most Cruise flicks nowadays, it under-performed at the US box office.
Still, in checking Memorial Day weekend figures just now, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the film had managed to at least cross the $100 million mark domestically making it the first non-Mission Impossible film starring Cruise to do so since War of the Worlds in 2005.
He’s now busy filming the fifth Mission Impossible movie so his next release should be a big hit too.
It’s important to note that while such Cruise flicks as Oblivion, Jack Reacher, Knight and Day and Valkyre failed to cross $100 million in his home country, Cruise remains a strong box office draw internationally.
Edge of Tomorrow has grossed $264,150,000 in foreign markets for a worldwide gross of $364,275,942.
It cost $178 million to make.
