This Sunday, moms across the world'll be celebrating their own momness (or is it momitude?) in varying degrees and fashions. Some will receive flowers; others will demand that those whiny, slothy teenage miscreants do their own ruddy laundry for crying out loud ... or something like that. Get More »
Last month, Tom Cruise was able to watch the box office feed, give himself a little shoulder punch and rest assured he's totally still got it as his journey into "Oblivion" owned its opening weekend and renewed his tenure as Tinsel Town's "Top Gun."
He's been the driver on a buncha hit one-shot action flicks like this over the years, but he's somehow stayed a one-franchise man with "Mission: Impossible." And since the marrow's not completely sucked outta that bone just yet, it's time for round five.
This week: Tom Cruise proves naysayers wrong yet again in the above-average thriller "Jack Reacher," which was shot entirely in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is based on Lee Child's 2005 mystery novel, "One Shot."
Also new this week is the horror hit "Mama" with Jessica Chastain, the Nicholas Sparks adaptation "Safe Haven" with Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough and the Blu-ray 3D conversion of "Gamer" with Gerard Butler. Get More »
Tom Cruise is considered a shorty by Hollywood's definition — he's 5-foot-7, which is pretty near to average for us normies — while Armie Hammer is ridiculously tall by any standard outside the NBA (an intimidating six-foot-five). That's almost a whole foot height differential, son, and now the two are set to co-lead a movie side by side.
Tom Cruise proved once again that you just can't keep him down, as the ageless action star powered "Oblivion" to an easy win at the box office this weekend to the tune of $38.2 million according to Film.com.
Of course, some of the credit for "Oblivion's" strong performance goes to the fact that there weren't any other new releases this weekend. So having no competition certainly helped. And it also helped returning films like "42," which finished in second place with $18 million, and "The Croods," which hung onto the third spot with $9.5 million.
Still, a win is a win. And this is a win Cruise will be taking straight to the bank.
For a full rundown of this weekend's box office top 10, head to Film.com.
We like Tom Cruise. Yes, the man be crazy, but he's also an endlessly charming rogue and a damn fine actor. But wow, does he sometimes have to say stupid things in his movies.
"Oblivion" has stunning production design and a sweet M83 score, but there's no doubt it contains at least one groan-inducing line of dialogue. Here are Tom Cruise's Top 10 most unfortunate quotes.
Greetings from the apocalypse! You might think that this particular Mad Max would enjoy watching Tom Cruise fight evil robots in a future nuclear-blasted wasteland, but NOPE! "Oblivion" is a dud, though that doesn't mean we can't make it through the next few days as long as we stick together and don't cross the DMZ. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, troops, we're goin' in … Get More »
Tom Cruise does a lost more in his movies than just flash his million-dollar smile and have nervous breakdowns in locker rooms with Cuba Gooding Jr., you know. Over the course of his nearly 40 years in movies, Cruise has taken on a wide variety of formidable enemies, whether they be made of flesh and blood or something else. Like any true movie hero, the man just can't get away from conflict.
In honor of the release of "Oblivion," which has Cruise taking on yet another new opponent, we've created an infographic that illustrates just how much fightin' Tom has done over the years — and who (or what) has been on the receiving end of his furious wrath.

Tom Cruise is Not. That. Short.
OK, so no one's saying that 5-foot-7 is tall or anything, but, for as long as we can remember, Cruise's height has been a hot topic of conversation. Which is particularly amusing because we don't recall anyone mentioning anything about Robert Downey Jr. or Javier Bardem's stature. Yet, they too stand 5-foot-7. Get More »
