Science Has Proven The More Tom Cruise Runs In a Film The Better It The Movie Does

The more Tom Cruise runs in a movie, the better it does at the box office. That's not a bold or incorrect statement, that's Science with a capital "S." Rotten Tomatoes did the math, and concluded that films where Tom Cruise runs do much better at the box office than ones where he doesn't at all, and it's a hilarious coincidence that you have to see to believe. For example, here's his top ten films and the distance he runs in all of them:

  1. “Mission: Impossible III” — 3,212 feet

  2. “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” — 3,066 feet

  3. “War of the Worlds” — 1,752 feet

  4. “Minority Report” — 1,562 feet

  5. “The Firm” — 1,241 feet

  6. “Edge of Tomorrow” — 1,065 feet

  7. “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” — 1,051 feet

  8. “The Mummy” — 1,022 feet

  9. “Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation” — 1,007 feet

  10. “Vanilla Sky” — 832 feet

Need even more evidence? Tom Cruise does zero running in Valkyrie which, regardless of what you think of it, didn't do to well at the box office. Maybe Tom is in on some secret we're not all aware of? Do you think it's a coincidence or there's something to Tom Cruise running that makes his films so successful?
