LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Three films are essentially tied at the top of the weekend box office, as of Sunday morning.
Universal’s “American Made” is currently in a tight race against “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” and “It” for the top spot at this weekend’s box office. Estimates currently have the R-Rated Tom Cruise crime film making $16.5 million from 3,024 screens this weekend, matching the mid-teens pre-weekend projection from independent trackers.
Meanwhile, “Kingsman” is estimated to make virtually the same amount in its second weekend after making $39 million last week, while “It” is just barely behind with a $16.3 million weekend. “It” has now passed “Gravity” to become the highest grossing film released between Labor Day and Halloween.
In his latest film, “American Made,” Tom Cruise regularly flashes his bare rear end as part of a running gag, and that led people to ask a question that’s been on his fans’ minds for some time now … does the action star use a prosthetic butt?
In Cruise’s 2008 film, “Valkyrie,” there’s a freeze frame shot of Cruise getting up from a pile of rubble that has left moviegoers wondering whether the actor did a lot of squats to get ready for the role or if he was packing some extra padding in his trousers. When asked by Screen Rant about the posterior speculation, Cruise
James Corden has “Carpool Karaoke,” Jerry Seinfeld has “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and now Conan O’Brien has a car segment, too. Unfortunately for the TBS late-night host, it’s unlikely other stars will want to sign up for Conan’s version where he “just drives” after watching Tom Cruise’s experience in

Fans noticed in Tom‘s 2008 film Valkyrie that it looked like he may have been wearing extra padding in his pants in a few scenes.
Tom shared in a recent interview with Screen Rant that no butt prosthetics were used before also saying that he’s never heard of that story before.
“I have no idea,” Tom said. “There was no
Nicole Kidman might have only thanked her two young children during her Emmys speech last weekend, but she also made a point to mention her adult children as well that evening!
The Emmy-winning Big Little Lies star and her husband Keith Urban are the parents to two girls – Sunday Rose, 8, and Faith Margaret, 6.
Nicole and her ex-husband Tom Cruise adopted two children during their marriage – Isabella, 24, and Connor 22.
When Nicole was speaking to ABC News after the Emmys, the interviewer said, “You have young daughters, I know your children are younger…”
Nicole then cut in to say, “Well, I have two adult
Tom Cruise‘s Mission: Impossible 6 shut down production this summer after he broke his ankle while performing a stunt.
The 55-year-old actor sat down with Extra and was asked how he is doing and how he is healing after the scary accident (you can see photos of Tom performing the stunt that caused his ankle break below.)
Tom was a little vague, besides saying he’s “good,” and promised to go into more details when he starts doing press for the movie. He assured fans he is okay.

“Machete” star and all-around Hollywood badass Danny Trejo doesn’t seem like he’s scared of much. But he’s happy to leave stunt work to the stunt professionals.
In a Thursday Facebook Live interview with Yahoo Movies, Trejo criticized stars who do their own stunts, which can have far-reaching consequences when they go wrong — not-so-subtly calling out Tom Cruise, who recently broke his ankle while shooting “Mission: Impossible 6” in London, delaying production for up to eight weeks.
“I know that all the big stars hate me to say this, but I don’t want to risk 80 peoples’ jobs just to say I got big huevos on ‘The Tonight Show,'”
