Lord Xenu Lives: Snyder Bails Out Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise Cuts Deal with New Group - Los Angeles Times

Will they begin setting up those biofeedback booths at home games?

As far as the Lord Xenu crack back, see:

Chicago Tribune | The Watcher

or refer back to the South Park episode in question.

Maybe our offense is controlled by alien spirits and that's why they suck right now...

I hear that Cruise is going to make Top Gun 2. His co pilot is going to be SouthEast Jerome.

Listen, if I had a quadrazillion dollars, I'd do the same thing. Since Tom Cruise went "crazy" he's put out two movies. Those movies, "War of the Worlds" and "M:I 3", made a billion dollars.

The only financial investment more guaranteed to make money is counterfeiting.

Uhm uh, actually, those two movies put an entire studio in the tank -- which is what TCs firing was actually all about.

If your business crashes because a couple of movies only made $981 million, I wouldn't blame the movies.

I'm only defending Cruise because he may come to my tailgate on the 11th, now that he's an employee.

Brud, the sooner I can get that info I requested in the PM the better. Thanks

I'm hoping this deal just means we get several gratuitous shots of Katie Holmes in the stands

Brud, if you think NFL salary caps are complex, welcome to the fun and exciting world of Hollywood accounting.

The most important thing to understand is that everyone involved is screwing everyone involved.

The world box office gross has no real relation to how much money Paramount made. Pulling the production costs and ad budget from the gross also doesn't tell you anything. There are 30 other line items on the expense side that you have to know. These numbers are better protected than NSA secrets, so it is impossible to know the real numbers.

Paramount may not have lost money on WotW or MI3, but they definately didn't make what they needed to in order to keep doing business as they were. From a $$ perspective, those movies were disappointing to everyone who had put upfront skin in the game.

The Cruise/Wagner firing is actually only a small part of the Paramount story -- it was just the only 8 figure development deal they killed. The bigger story are the several dozen 6 and 7 figure development deals they killed because of what it means for their ability to generate future projects.

If Cruise really was a billion dollar ATM for Paramount, he could quit Scientology, go on Oprah jump on the sofa and profess gay love for Bin Laden and he wouldn't be fired.
