"The Fault in Our Stars" Dominates Box Office, Tom Cruise's "Edge of Tomorrow" Flops

Posted: June 9th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Fault in Our Stars" Dominates Box Office, Tom CruiseSubmit Comment
Thanks to mostly young female, "The Fault in Our Stars" dominated at the domestic box office by grossing over $48 million this weekend. The film is based on a book by John Green and stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as two young lovers who meet in a cancer support group.

"The Fault in Our Stars" cost just $12 million to make and has an 82% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. With the addition of the $17 million it earned overseas, the film had a $65 million debut, already becoming incredibly profitable.

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise's "Edge of Tomorrow" sci-fi film, which has an impressive 90% fresh rating, had to settle for third place with just $29 million. Since it cost $178 million to make, the new movie is considered a flop domestically. Overseas, however, it grossed an additional $111 million over the last ten days for a worldwide take of $140 million.

"We have a movie that has incredible reviews. We have an audience that likes what it sees, and we believe more moviegoers will embrace it in the weeks to come," said Warner Bros. "It's tough when you have a new concept."

In its second week, Disney's "Maleficent" is still performing well, grossing an additional $34 million to bring its worldwide earnings to $335 million. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has now surpassed the $600 million mark globally.

Tom Cruise doesn't pull in the crowds like he used to. People would rather flock to the new Transformers with Marky Mark.

So the film that, as far as I can tell, is "A Walk to Remember 2" won at the box office. Super.

Edge of Tomorrow was a decent movie with some flaws, but it's a strong effort and Tom Cruise brings his A-game.

I can't tell people what to go see and not see but it is kinda lame that this was trumped by to goddamn girl-power/weepy chick flicks.

I mean, Christ, Angelina Jolie in drag and some dumb teen-romance sh*t with cancer ...or Cruise blowing up aliens in a mech-suite? Obviously, men are p*ssying-out by letting their wives/girlfriends decide on movie night.

In truth, though, didn't follow the marketing, so maybe they didn't really know how to sell the movie uniquely or appealingly, or maybe the masses are more or less done with Cruise. It's not like critical reviews were a problem.

Oh, well. Cruise will keep going: MI5 next year. Followed by Thetan rapture ...involving starships.

Citizens of the world should see Edge of Tomorrow if for no other reason than Bill Paxton chewing scenery as a Master Sergeant from Kentucky.

My girlfriend's daughter asked us to go see The Fault in Our Stars ...

they should've relabeled it "The Fault with this f*cking Story".

It was pretentious, hipster Harlequin for tweens ... and I had hoped that at the end the girlfriend died as well.

Edge of Tomorrow ? Definitely a cult classic. Never mind the domestics ... it'll become something you would watch again and again. Then die. Then watch again and again. Then die. Then watch again and again ....

"It's tough when you have a new concept."

Nope. It was called Groundhog Day. Check into it Warner Bros.

Oh, and by the way, do you know who would make an excellent Lex Luthor? That skinny kid from the Facebook movie.

Just got back from Edge of Tomorrow. Heres some thoughts and a brief review while its still fresh.

In short, its a solid movie. Not amazing or anything, just a solid good almost great film. It definitely has enough about it to make it unique enough to warrant its place in scif fi film pantheon.

The directing was well done, especially when melding the practical and cgi effects on screem at once. Yes this film has tons of cgi as you would think, and honestly this movie could not have been made this well before the tech of today was available. Only some instances were there too much cgi going on without a purpose and I could forgive that considering it didnt detract from enjoyment and because overall the cgi was fantastic.

There were a few scenes in the training warehouse in particular where I felt the cgi failed the film, but I think thats just because the background was so bland that it stood out. Otherwise the action sequences were a pleasure to watch. The main battle at the beach shown in the trailer was a feast for the eyes indeed. However my favorite sequences of action were when cruise and blunt were off on theyre own kicking ass, sadly those were few.

Dispersed between the action sequences there were fine performance's to be found. Cruise as always delivers an intense and engaging performance. Even in the scenes with extensive post production you can feel he is there in those situations due to his commitment to it. Its really par for the course here and nothing new, awesome stunts as always by him as well.

Emily blunt gave a good but not great performance overall. It seemed at times that her unfamiliarity with heavy action/cgi films hels her back. With that said she does has some stand out action sequences that rival cruise with her own intensity and athletic ability. Specificly when she wields her awesome sword. Sword in hand her character seemed to come alive and be a badass.

In the quieter moments I did enjoy the subtlety and nuance each brought to theyre characters. The moments that each of them share where theyre characters were shedding the soldier facade and allowed each other in were nice but not so much or overdone that they messed with the pace.

There was one particular scene between them that I thought fell flat and seemed forced, towards the end just before the "boss battle". To those who have seen it they will know what I mean. How the film is currently structured I do not feel the characters earned that moment. Something tells me a directors cut with deleted scenes will eventually flesh out that story arc and better pave the way for it in the end.

Other than them the rest of the cast was good not great and somewhat stereotypical. Which in a movie this sci fi action packed and fast paced I can live with it. Bill paxton was the only other notable one and he didnt get enough screen time. He did actually, but most of it was exposition and/or a similar scene over and over stlightly different each time. For what he had to work with however I thought he did well.

Story wise I thought overall it was well done. I have not read the source material but im sure liberties were taken. Was not the most original of ideas overall, alien invasion and such, but the iterations of the formula were noteworthy. It took somewhat of a video game approach in the way of the aliens. Making them varied enough to pose strategic threats and to keep thrm unpredictable. Some can burrow underground, some run super fast. Some shoot projectiles and some are straight up melee only. And there are levels to them as far as intelligence and importance. They showed enough to give you insight into them but not in depth enough for you to completely grasp theyre structure.

Im ok with that so much so that it actually plays well. That way the viewer is just as in the dark as the characters, we understand as much as them and adapt as they do. All of them had distinct looks to them and for the most part made good enemies on screen. Beach battle was a sight to behold.

overall editing and pacing was good. Got bogged down a bit in the third act but the action picked up for the finale, third act wasnt bad un a vacuum but compared to first two was slower. The editing was well done and kept the action sequences humming along.

So in summation it was a good movie and specificlly a good sci fi movie, full sci fi. Not talking bullsh*t teeny bopper sci fi warewolf vampire BS. This movie proves that a good original sci fi film can still be done this day and age and it does not need to compromise itself to draw in younger crowds which incidently might be its box office downfall. That remains to be seen. Cruise was again engaging in the role and gives his standard 110%. Good performances overall and some fantastic action sequences. If you like action movies, sci fi movies, or just cruise films id say its a must see. Id also say due to the type of film and action if you can in a theater do so since thats how its intended to be seen.

Score: 8 out of 10

-good performances by cruise, blunt and paxton**
- fantastic action sequences
- good pacing and solid direction
- nice blending of practical and cgi effects


-**paxton while good was underutilized
- some character moments not earned as currently structured
- some minor cgi faults (one scene)
-bogging down somewhat in 3rd act

Wow, beaten by love in a cancer unit. Talk about adding insult to injury. Knew it wouldn't be huge but $29 mill is horse sh*t money.

Too bad, it was a pretty entertaining action flick. It did go a little overboard with the Groundhog Day concept but used it effectively in the narrative overall. My one major complaint is that's it kind of glosses over important opportunities and moments that it could have used to be a much deeper (and frankly better) film. The relationship between Blunt and Cruise, by default of the paradox of the film, could never form the type of emotion relationship that makes these types of movies great. Usually in the One Day Repeat movies like GHD, Source code, and most of all 50 First Dates, the main character gets more and more hopelessly attached to his counterpart as he repeats the day. It adds a dynamic to the film that's both frustrating for the main character and emotionally daunting for the audience. No matter the surrounding circ*mstances this is at the heart of the film. EOT does have this element but so little of the film focuses on it until the third act. When they do address it very little time is afforded the moment so there is little emotional build up or payoff when it counts. A little more time spent building the main characters' relationship might have been just what was needed to make this more than just a cool action film. 7/10
