A new trailer for James Mangold’s Knight and Day, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, has come online. It plays better than the first trailer and is a reminder that while Cruise’s personal life can be controversial, the guy is a movie star because he has charisma and is likable (the latter depending on how much you can forget his personal life when you see one of his movies). I think the movie looks like a lot of fun due mainly to Cruise’s performance combined with Diaz’ ability to play panicked without becoming shrill. The action looks fairly solid too, although there’s one shot where the two are looking at the oncoming running of the bulls and if they’d kept the background as a green screen it would be just as convincing.
Hit the jump for the new trailer and the official synopsis. The film co-stars Peter Sarsgaard, Maggie Grace, Paul Dano, Viola Davis, and, as you can see by the trailer, Marc mustachioed Blucas. Knight and Day hits theaters on June 25th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Knight and Day:
“Knight and Day” centers on a lonely woman (Diaz) whose seemingly harmless blind date suddenly turns her life upside-down when a super spy (Cruise) takes her on a violent worldwide journey to protect a powerful battery that holds the key to an infinite power source. Maggie Grace is playing Diaz’s sister, who is getting married, excited that Diaz will take the place of their late father and walk her down the aisle.
