Maybe that whole Xenu thing isn't sci-fi enough for him? Either way, Tom Cruise has really been digging the sci-fi genre of late. Earlier this year he wrapped on Joseph Kosinski's upcoming "Oblivion," this fall he's shooting "All You Need Is Kill" with Doug Liman, and now another script is keeping Cruise up at night with a flashlight under the covers.

As the poster for "Parker" with Jason Statham proved, sometimes you just gotta roll with what people know. And just as a poster for a Jason Statham movie demands that Jason Statham be featured prominently on it so audiences know that Jason Statham is in it, the same rule applies to Tom Cruise.

You would think that given the release calendar for 2014 is still pretty wide open, studios wouldn't be crowding their major tentpoles close together, but already, March of that year is looking like it's going to be a wrestling match of competing films. And showdowns don't get much bigger than Tom Cruise vs. Angelina Jolie.

Between "Jack Reacher" and "Jack Ryan," Paramount surely has a lot of Jack on their hands with their franchises. You would think they might be worried about audience confusion, but clearly they're certain that Chris Pine's thriller and Tom Cruise's actioner will provide two distinct, unique characters that it won't be a problem. At least that's the hope.

Seth Rogen has never minded having a bit of fun at the expense of Tom Cruise. You may recall that earlier this year, he recounted the time he peed on the actor's driveway. And now, he's ready to be his wife.

Along with the requisite comments on shooting in 70mm and Joaquin Phoenix's return to cinema screens, cast and crew from “The Master” have by and large counted the film's Scientology parallels as the main source of discussion. The concentration of questions has lessened somewhat as subsequent press showings of the film have revealed a different focus entirely, but just as the pressure subsides for PTA and co., leave it to Tom Cruise to stir up speculation on Scientology once more, this time regarding the process surrounding his past marital courting.

Over the weekend, this writer finished reading "Persuader," one of Lee Child's dozen plus books centering on ex-military man turned drifter/problem solver Jack Reacher, and it only underscores how divisive the casting of Tom Cruise is in "Jack Reacher," based on "One Shot." In the books, Reacher is a six foot something, larger than life bruiser whose sheer physical size can be intimdating to those who cross his path -- not exactly the kind of image you get from the 5'7" Cruise. But with a new image now landing, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie is ready to address the doubters.

With the Tom Cruise/Katie Homes divorce reportedly heading towards a settlement, thus denying the world the Scientology versus Holmes/Suri showdown the tabloid world has been dreaming of, it looks like Tom Cruise may have something else to occupy his mind in the coming months. It was back in May that reports first came out that the actor, who has seen Paul Thomas Anderson's it's-not-about-Scientology-but-it-kind-of-totally-is "The Master," had "issues" with it. And it seems the problems he has with his "Magnolia" collaborator's movie aren't going away.

Tom Cruise turns 50 today, and he's probably had better birthdays. His latest film, "Rock Of Ages," was a box office disappointment, and on Friday, it emerged that Katie Holmes, his third wife, and mother of his daughter Suri, was filing for divorce. Just as things were seemingly starting to get back on track after a difficult half decade -- last year's "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" was his biggest hit ever -- it looks like the actor is hitting another rough patch.
