Fan-Favourite Tom Cruise Blockbuster Climbing Netflix High 10 Ranks


Not only has Tom Cruise proven himself at the box office, but he’s also proving how strong his movies can be on streaming services, even if they’ve been out for decades. In early May, a mid-2000s cruise vehicle made its way to Netflix, where it’s enjoyed a significant surge in popularity over the past week.

In 2005, Steven Spielberg brought his version of the classic War of the Worlds to theaters, starring Cruise. The film received mostly positive reviews and made a significant impact at the box office, grossing more than US$600 million worldwide. While War of the Worlds isn’t the focus of conversation all that often, its recent arrival on Netflix has gotten people interested in it again.

Wednesday’s Netflix Top 10 Movies list places War of the Worlds in third place overall, behind only The Gentlemen and Rambo: Last Blood. The film is one of the most popular on Netflix despite being released 17 years ago.
