9 Tom Cruise Movies With the Worst Opening Weekends

Tom Cruise is back in familiar territory with Top Gun: Maverick: Atop the box office standings. Cruise took some undeserved criticism for making the sequel to his 1986 hit, but a huge opening weekend for Maverick (at $134 million in North America, per Variety, it’s the best of his career) proves he knows exactly what audiences want. The well-reviewed Maverick is the latest of several Cruise movies to cash in at the box office, but we’re looking at the other side of the coin. These are the nine Cruise movies with the worst opening weekends.

A few notes: We considered starring roles only or parts in ensemble movies once he was established as a star (so no Outsiders). Films with limited releases for opening weekend weren’t considered (so no Magnolia or Born on the Fourth of July). All figures are adjusted to 2022 dollars using an online inflation calculator. All figures courtesy of IMDb.
