    i wonder if the scientologists get a cut of this

  2. Joe E says:

    Can anyone remember a meltdown this sizeable from an A-lister like Cruise? Sure, lots of come-and-go famous people go nuts, but Cruise has been around for a solid 2 decades. What the hell?

  3. LesterFreed says:

    It is unprecedented. On par with Michael Jackson. Without the kid touching.

  4. Joe Straat says:

    Damn X-Box exclusives….

  5. bicycle bob says:

    the meltdown gets funnier everyday.

  6. teambanzai says:

    Can she back out of the relastionship if it doesn’t improve her career. She has been dropped from the Batman Sequel.

  7. sky_capitan says:

    Michael Jackson and Tom Cruise have both had 2 failed marriages to WOMEN, so they have that in common. But is Tom’s arrangement with Katie any creepier than Michael Jackson’s arrangement with Debbie Rowe? I’m not sure.
    And is L Ron Hubbard a better sci-fi writer than HG Wells? Sorry Wells, but Hubbard created a religion with millions of followers who view him as a prophet or a god, you didn’t.
    Like I overheard William Goldman at a Knicks game, “You know, I really think Jeff Van Gundy should come back to the Knicks, he’s a very underated coach. And about Scientology, I have Scientologist actors come over to my place all the time and they admire my two Oscars, but they don’t view me as a prophet or a god. I admire Hubbard so much for that; he was a true genius.”

  8. sky_capitan says:

    Maybe they’ll greenlight Abandon 2 for Katie.
    We can hope…

  9. Joe E says:

    The rumor mill in LA is that Cruise was caught in bed with Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20, and Cruise paid him millions for silence and did a contract with Katie Holmes.
    and if you believe all that, I have some magic beans for you.

  10. Mark says:

    She hasn’t been dropped. That is only internet speculation.

  11. LesterFreed says:

    There is always a Return to the Creek for Katie. Van der Beek always needs the work.

  12. joefitz84 says:

    Who will they cut her for? It is a nothing role anyway. Not like they need Merryl Streep in it. They can just kill her off in Act 1 and introduce Harvey Dent anyway.

  13. teambanzai says:

    Shhhhh They could be listening, we don’t want the rath of Xenu coming down on us.
    Hubbard was a complete and total mental case but I have to agree inventing a religion damn fine way to make a shit load of money.

  14. Angelus21 says:

    Scientologists scare the heck outta me.

  15. Joe E says:

    Scientologists don’t scare me nearly as much as Christian nutjobs with axes to grind and lax gun laws.
    Travolta had to suffer all this backlash when Battlefiend Earth came out. Frankly, if Tom thinks Scientology cured him of his dyslexia who are we to care. it’s his problem and his money.

  16. jeffmcm says:

    I’m pretty sure there was an official WB statement that said they were dropping here and going with a “stronger actress”. Fine by me.

  17. Anonymous says:

    There was no such statement. What studio would release something like that? No matter what they thought.

  18. jeffmcm says:

    You’re right, it was a gossip report. Still, she won’t be back.

  19. charliek says:

    There wasn’t a statement about replacing her. The original rumor was reported by the always reliable Page Six, as a part of their daily TomKat bashing. The official statement by WB (to Eonline)was that any sequel talk at this stage is premature.

  20. Panda Bear says:

    Why would they replace her? She is not Sofia Coppola here.

  21. charliek says:

    The gossip implied Wb was unhappy with too much TomKat during the pubblicity for the movie.

  22. Angelus21 says:

    That is your opinion and the opinion of a couple of gossip sites.

  23. joefitz84 says:

    Don’t remind us about Godfather 3. I am trying to forget it ever existed.

  24. J-Dub says:

    It exist. I just saw it the other day. Andy Garcia deserved better! DAMN YOU WINONA HOROWITZ! DAMN YOU!

  25. David Poland says:

    Page Six quouted imdb which mysteriously used WENN as their news provider even though WENN often reports Brit tabloid gossip (usually wrong) as news all the time.
    A company as powerful and wealthy as imdb should be using a real news service. It’s embarrassing.
    The Batman sequel hasn’t been greenlit yet. And all this other stuff is as real as the endless Bond “scoops.”

  26. Arc says:

    So, anyways… War of the Worlds…
    Wow…
    Was that movie ever dumb.
    Wow…

  27. KamikazeCamel says:

    Considering there’s been a new Batman Girl in each of the four prior Batman movies it would make sense to dump Katie under those reasons (yet really be harbouring regret at hiring her for the first on in the first place)
    The quotes about a stronger actress and such came from “a source at Warner Bros.”
    But, hell, if I was anyone involved with Batman Begins I’d want her away from the sequel like a plague. Even I felt insulted when she said she didn’t care if her love life overshadows her films.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
