Re: All You Need is Kill..Tom Cruise does scifi again

Will Smith is the king of sci-fi.

ID4
MIB 1, 2, 3
I Robot
I Am Legend
Hancock
Wild Wild West

That's good for about four billion USD in worldwide box office revenue right there. "After Earth" is his next movie this year, and he also has a role in a fantasy movie called Winter's Tale.

I'm not really interested in his personal life,
In all seriousness, perhaps Cruise's interest in sci-fi is related to his beliefs in Scientology and that -sci fi plays much into their belief system related to Xenu and the end of civilization?

Just a guess.

Regarding his stature in modern sci-fi - I'm not sure he's any bigger than Zoe Saldana, Harrison Ford, or Bruce Willis. And with SW coming up - and if Fisher, Hamill and Ford possibly showing up again - that will eclipse everything else out there.

Hamil was on The Neighbors yesterday.

Eclipse is truly the right word.

Cruise is a bigger star than Ford or Willis at this point in his career so yes, by default he's a bigger skiffy star than anyone else. All expensive movies are made for the broadest possible audience.

True, he probably is, though I still think Cruise makes better choices. Out of that list there are maybe 2 excellent movies and two above avg. After Earth looks good as well.

Other than Weaver though, Avatar was very successful without a big name star like Cruise. Successful beyond anything Cruise has ever done even Mission Impossible.

So what? That doesn't make any actor in it a bigger star than Cruise. That's not how it works.
