War of the Worlds, a Steven Spielberg film starring Tom Cruise, has passed the $500 million threshold at the worldwide box office, taking in over $218.3 million domestically and over $310.7 million internationally and still growing.

Wayne Lewellen, president of motion picture distribution for Paramount Pictures, said, "It's always gratifying to see the audience respond as strongly as it has to 'War of the Worlds,' a film that proved to be a cultural focal point for audiences everywhere. Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise have delivered another of the biggest hits of all time. We're thrilled."

Since its release, War of the Worlds has become a worldwide blockbuster. In the U.S., the film set a new career high for Tom Cruise as well as a new mark for Paramount Pictures by scoring the largest opening day, largest single day, and largest opening weekend the star and the company have ever had. In addition, the film has surpassed the $215 million domestic gross for Mission: Impossible II, becoming the biggest hit in Tom Cruise's extraordinary career.

The film has broken a total of 179 international records, including new opening-weekend highs in many territories for Tom Cruise, Steven Spielberg, and Paramount Pictures. War of the Worlds scored the trifecta -- biggest Cruise weekend, biggest Spielberg weekend, and biggest Paramount weekend -- in such markets as the UK, Italy, Spain, Australia, Mexico, Korea, Egypt, Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, Hungary, Portugal, and many other territories. In Argentina and Russia, among other countries, the film set the new mark for the #1 opening weekend of all time.

Have I already mentioned that Spielbergs WOTW was at the top at the Dutch Cinema list for several weeks?

The Tempest is an advanced assault vehicle, which carries two heavy Heat-Rays and a Canister Launcher.
