Pacing and then looking back at what you have done and what is still left in the basket, I think not only every actor, but writers and directors should do as well. Tom Cruise, post War of the Worlds, yes, a successful film, but not so successful in the eyes of the studios, had to deal with some downs. Later, the biggest star in the world, who has a day named to him in Japan, which is simply called in their calendars: Tom Cruise Day, had to rely on smaller films and some were not so action packed, but respectively were dramas that didn't do all that good in the box office.
Tom Cruise in 'All You Need Is Kill'
But, this resilient actor didn't hit the break; he simply observed his failures and yes some of his mistakes (we all make mistakes) as well and picked himself up bringing blockbusters again starting with the successful Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. His recent film, not to forget, Oblivion remained on top of the box office for almost two weeks.
Next time we are going to see Mr. Cruise again on the big screen running in front of flames, dust and debris everywhere around him, is 2014; the dedicated actor will be seen in director Doug Liman's (The Bourne Identity) action/sci-fi, All You Need Is Kill, which is based on the novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Warner Bros. recently announced that the film will not be released on March 7. 2014. All You Need is Kill is now scheduled to release on June 6, 2014, which, in my opinion, is a clever idea, for at the box office window not too many people will be present during March. Summer is the perfect time to get the attention of the die-hard fans.
Tom Cruise stars as Lt. Col. Bill Cage, an officer who is killed within minutes of a doomed combat mission to take down a hive-like alien race. He wakes up and is forced to relive the day (and the death) over and over because direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop, dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over.
