Adjust for inflation!

The opening day of War of the Worlds has been reported as the "most successful first day for a [Tom] Cruise movie." Such reporting is meant to imply that Cruise's public shenanigans will have little impact on the performance of his film. The mainstream press has been fixated on Cruise and on the alleged "box office slump" of 2005, so expect many articles written about this film's box office grosses.

Hopefully, the next news outlet to compare all of Cruise's opening day grosses will adjust for inflation. I doubt War of the Worlds tops Top Gun.
