The more I see of Knight and Day the more I’m coming round to the notion that it really could be very good indeed. All evidence to date points to completely over the top action and Tom Cruise ripping the piss out of himself. All good things.
Today sees a viral trailer hit the ‘net showing Cruise and co-star Cameron Diaz practising a stunt fight. While it is clearly staged it does show a healthily interaction between the lead pair and just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek bravado.
The comedy route is a good avenue for Cruise and having found success with his Tropic Thunder cameo it is good to see him embrace the funny, plus he could always pull of action roles. This new trailer does have one excellent moment, when Cameron D kicks the Crusier in the chest…and come on…we’d all like to do that!
Knight and Day is out July 2nd.
