MI:III Publicity

From a BBC News article regarding MI:III

Paramount head of worldwide marketing and distribution Rob Moore said he did not think Cruise’s private life had any impact on the film’s box office performance.

“I don’t think so,” he said. “There’s no question it concerns us if the press is writing about things other than the movie.

“If people are writing about his personal life, then by definition, they’re not writing about the movie.”

Does that make no sense at all, or is it just me?

A few people are refusing to see the film (even though they want to) because of Tom Cruise being a crazy man. I’m not going that far – it seems somewhat unfair to the hundreds of other people involved – although he is hard to watch without remembering his being stuck in a closet.
