Tom Cruise Should Keep On Running In His Movies — Here’s Why!

Tom Cruise is known for his on-screen running and now Rotten Tomatoes have looked into exactly how much sprinting the actor has actually done throughout his career.

Cruise, 56, who has been busy promoting his latest movie “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”, has run over 24,000 feet in his movies in total, it’s been revealed.

The website have even gone on to figure out whether or not the running scenes actually have an impact on how well his movies do.

The data showed that movies featuring Cruise running more than 1,000 feet have a higher Tomatometer average of a whopping 71 percent.

The website also added that “the same movies make more money at the box office, with an average inflated international gross of $538 million.”

Not ending their research there, Rotten Tomatoes then went on to say that the actor has been doing more running on screen as he’s gotten older.

They stated that Cruise ran 3,212 feet in “Mission: Impossible III” back in 2006, which is almost as much as his total amount of 3,299 feet in the 12 movies he made in the ’80s.
