With Knight and Day getting ready to come out this week, 20th Century Fox has provided us with 5 clips, about 5 minutes of B-Roll (Behind the Scenes Footage), and an on set interview with Tom Cruise. While I usually don’t post studio provided interviews, with how little press Cruise has done with the online community, I figured some of you might like to hear him talk about making the film and why he got involved.
Even though some of you have lost interest in Cruise as an action star, I’m still a fan of his work and hope this is the start of a new chapter in his career. On a separate note, I’ve heard the movie is a lot of fun. Judge for yourself after the jump:
Here’s the clips, B-Roll and on set interview followed by the official synopsis:
In the action-comedy KNIGHT AND DAY, Tom Cruise is a covert agent and Cameron Diaz is a woman caught between him and those he claims set him up. As their globetrotting adventure erupts into a maze of double-crosses, close escapes, false identities, and head-spinning romantic snafus, they come to realize that all they can count on is each other.
Twentieth Century Fox and Regency Enterprises present a Pink Machine / Todd Garner/ Tree/Line Film production, a film by James Mangold (Walk The Line, 3:10 To Yuma), starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, Knight And Day. The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis, Jordi Molla and Paul Dano. The film is written by Patrick O’Neill. Knight and Day is produced by Cathy Konrad, Steve Pink and Todd Garner; and executive produced by Joe Roth, Arnon Milchan and E. Bennett Walsh.
Mangold reunites with his behind-the-scenes team from Walk the Line and 3:10 To Yuma — director of photography Phedon Papamichael, ASC, editor Michael McCusker, A.C.E., costume designer Arianne Phillips, and production designer Andrew Menzies (the latter collaborating with Mangold only on 3:10 to Yuma) – who bring to life Knight and Day‘s sleek action, humor and edgy suspense in an array of spectacular locations. The music is by John Powell, whose many contemporary thrillers include The Bourne trilogy, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and The Italian Job.
