Tom-Cruise-net-worth-and-biography-Career

During his late teens he gave up the idea of becoming a priest and decided to try his hand at an acting career. He moved to New York and was successful in bagging a small role in the 1981 film ‘Endless Love’ as a 19 year old.
After playing small roles in some more films, he portrayed Joel Goodson in the romantic comedy ‘Risky Business’ in 1983. The film became a big hit, and Tom Cruise, with his chocolate-boy good looks became the heart-throb of millions of American girls.
In 1986, he appeared in the action drama film ‘Top Gun’ in which he played Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, a young naval aviator aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. This movie too became a huge success, cementing his reputation as a superstar.
His streak of success continued over the late 1980s with films like ‘The Color of Money’ (1986), ‘Cocktail’ (1988), ‘Rain Man’ (1988), and ‘Born on the Fourth of July’ (1989).

The plot follows agent Hunt and his mission to uncover the mole who has framed him for the murders of his entire team.The film was a big box office success and spawned several sequels.
He continued to be a highly bankable and popular star throughout the late 1990s and 2000s with films like ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ (1999), ‘Vanilla Sky’ (2001), ‘Minority Report’ (2002), ‘The Last Samurai’ (2003), ‘Collateral’ (2004), ‘War of the Worlds’ (2005), and ‘Lions for Lambs’ (2007).

Top Tom Cruise Movie

The Mummy (2017): $195 Million

Tom Cruise as Nick Morton in The Mummy

Serving as a reboot of The Mummy franchise, this movie was intended to begin the extended Dark Universe, which would reboot all the classic Universal monster movies of old. Unfortunately, the movie was an abject failure that completely obliterated any plans or hopes of continuing the Dark Universe. While the exact budget is unknown, it is estimated that production costs ran as high as $195 million. This makes it the most expensive film of Tom Cruise’s career, and also his biggest bomb.

Edge Of Tomorrow (2014): $178 Million

Tom Cruise Edge of Tomorrow

In 2014, Tom Cruise starred in yet another science fiction film, Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow (also known as Live Die Repeat). Co-written by Christopher McQuarrie and adapted from the Japanese light novel All You Need Is Kill, Edge of Tomorrow is essentially Groundhog Day with aliens.

Cruise plays Major William Cage, a man who continuously “restarts” at the Heathrow Airport military base after dying in battle. Like Mission: Impossible – FalloutEdge of Tomorrow was produced for a reported $178 million.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018): $178 Million

Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible Fallout

2018 saw the release of the sixth Mission: Impossible film. Subtitled Fallout, many fans and critics agreed that it was the best Mission: Impossible film yet, and director Christopher McQuarrie signed on to do two more movies, one of them being Mission: Impossible 7, which is currently filming through the pandemic.

With an all-star cast of A-list celebrities and the most bombastic stunts of the series, Fallout came equipped with an exorbitant $178 million price tag, by far the most expensive of the Mission: Impossible franchise.

Mission: Impossible III (2006): $150 Million

Directed by J.J. Abrams, Mission: Impossible III was the movie that made the Mission: Impossible series the titan it is today. While the first two movies were relatively popular, it was Mission: Impossible III that proved the series could compete with the likes of James Bond, and its incredible action sequences heralded the even better action sequences that were to come. Funnily enough, this movie was actually more expensive than Ghost Protocol, costing an estimated $150 million.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015): $150 Million

The Mission: Impossible series consistently one-ups itself, and Rogue Nation certainly continued that tradition. Serving as the sequel to Ghost ProtocolRogue Nation visited the likes of Austria, Morocco, and London. It also one-upped Ghost Protocol‘s Burj Khalifa sequence with Tom Cruise riding on the side of a military transport aircraft.

It seems as if all Mission: Impossible films are made within a tight budgetary window, as Rogue Nation was also produced for a reported $150 million.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011): $145 Million

As expensive as Cruise’s science fiction films are, they have nothing on the Mission: Impossible movies. Serving as the fourth installment in the franchise, Ghost Protocol received widespread praise, mainly for Brad Bird’s kinetic direction—not to mention the iconic Burj Khalifa sequence. Thirty minutes of the film were shot with IMAX cameras, and principal photography spanned places like Budapest, Mumbai, and Moscow, resulting in a reported $145 million budget.

War Of The Worlds (2005): $132 Million

The second Cruise-Spielberg collaboration, War of the Worlds was released in 2005 to a mixed critical reception. While most people loved the visual effects and scary alien invasion-themed story, many were torn on the quality of the movie’s anticlimactic ending.

Regardless, Spielberg’s filmmaking earned widespread praise. Working with a reported budget of $132 million, Spielberg and his team were able to craft one of the most convincing and frightening alien invasions in movie history.

Quotes from Tom Cruise

Quotes-from-Tom-Cruise

“I’ve gotten very good at scheduling my life, scheduling the scene and preparing myself for knowing, saving the energy, consuming the energy, knowing when to go for it and having the available reserves to be able to do that. You have to think about that because it’s endurance.” – Tom Cruise 

When I was about 7 years old, I had been labeled dyslexic. I’d try to concentrate on what I was reading, then I’d get to the end of the page and have very little memory of anything I’d read. I would go blank, feel anxious, nervous, bored, frustrated, dumb. I would get angry. My legs would actually hurt when I was studying. My head ached. All through school and well into my career, I felt like I had a secret. When I’d go to a new school, I wouldn’t want the other kids to know about my learning disability, but then I’d be sent off to remedial reading.” – Tom Cruise  

I look at the Samurai because they were the artists of their time. What I think struck me when I read Bushido is compassion. ‘If there’s no one there to help, go out and find someone to help.’ That hit me because I try to lead my life like that.” – Tom Cruise 

“I’ve gotten very good at scheduling my life, scheduling the scene and preparing myself for knowing, saving the energy, consuming the energy, knowing when to go for it and having the available reserves to be able to do that. You have to think about that because it’s endurance.” – Tom Cruise  

“I just want to help people. I’m a helper. For instance, I myself have helped hundreds of people get off drugs. In Scientology, we have the only successful drug rehabilitation program in the world. It’s called Narconon.” – Tom Cruise
