Tom’s “Mission” Falls Short of Expectations

Hollywood tongues are wagging over the weekend’s less-than-expected box-office tally for Mission: Impossible III â.. and asking if Tom Cruise’s image may be to blame.
With an estimated $48.025 million in its till, M:I3 fell below industry expectations and nearly $10 million below the franchise’s previous installment, reports the Associated Press.
Traditionally tight-lipped about his private life, Cruise suddenly shifted gears last year and starting posing for paparazzi while kissing his then-girlfriend Katie Holmes. Other public displays included jumping up and down on Oprah Winfreyâ..s couch while professing his love for Holmes and also spouting his Scientology beliefs on the Today show.
