off of WENN:
CRUISE TO BLAME FOR POOR M:I3 OPENING, SAYS FORMER AGENT
TOM CRUISE is responsible for the poor box office performance of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III, according to his former agent RON MEYER.
The film took a disappointing $48 million (GBP27 million) in its opening weekend at the US box-office, falling well short of industry forecasts.
In 2000, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE:II scooped a massive $57 million (GBP32 million), despite lower ticket prices.
And Meyer claims the hype surrounding Cruise's relationship with KATIE HOLMES and his infamous appearance on OPRAH WINFREY's talk show is to blame.
Meyer says, "When the public learns too much about a star, it's dangerous. You're hiring a mystique. No one is as attractive as they are portrayed." 05/17/06 03:04
