Must Watch: Official Trailer for Cruise & Diaz's Knight & Day
Fox has finally launched the first Knight & Day trailer online at E! Online. A few of you might have seen this over the weekend in front of Avatar, but for everyone else, I highly suggest you check this out. It's an action comedy, mixing Tom Cruise-style intense action (reminiscent of Eagle Eye or something) with the stupid humor of Cameron Diaz. As much as I hate Diaz, I have to admit that this looks pretty damn fun. I love that Cruise just keeps popping up in the most badass ways. Like Peter from SlashFilm said, it's not the comedy that makes me want to see this, it's the action. Looking forward to seeing the second trailer, too!
Watch the first official trailer for Knight & Day:
An action-comedy that follows a fugitive couple on a deadly adventure where nothing is what it seems.
Knight & Day, formerly known as Wichita or Trouble Man, is directed by New York-born filmmaker James Mangold, of 3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, Identity, Kate & Leopold, Girl Interrupted, and also Cop Land previously. The screenplay was written by first-timer Patrick O'Neill whose only other writing credit is on a TV show called "Dead Last". 20th Century Fox is bringing Knight & Day to theaters everywhere starting on July 2nd, 2010 this upcoming summer. Is this what you were expecting or does it look entirely different?

"I'm gonna kill myself, then her!" Seems pretty funny
Nick Sears on Dec 22, 2009
It seems like too much violence for the audience that Cruise and Diaz would appeal to. I don't see this being much of a box office hit. "Come see this movie because we shoot a lot of guns! Guns are cool, right?"
The Man With No Name on Dec 22, 2009
Looks pretty good. Like Mr. and Mrs. Smith meets (insert stupid comedy movie).
klaus_komix on Dec 22, 2009
i'm not sure on this,looks like it could have some good action scenes.

That motorcycle stunt thing was kinda cool and unexpected.
Greedo on Dec 22, 2009
LOL! That looks fun! Like how they give nothing away.
K on Dec 22, 2009
Fun and more fun. Ill see it.
Unseen on Dec 22, 2009
Wow he's looking old. oh btw, this looks terrible.
Dan the Fan on Dec 22, 2009
It looks fun, YES! I hate how Cruise defies death with a stupid grin on his face all the time!
Blue Silver on Dec 22, 2009
I just now got the title *smacks head* But I laughed at probably every joke on here. Could be just because I love Cruise in roles where he just gets to have fun.
Tristan on Dec 22, 2009
I thought I was going to hate it, buuuuut....I don't know. Looked kind of funny.
Sabes on Dec 22, 2009
Be good to see Cruise having a bit of fun on film for a change
Marty on Dec 22, 2009
Alex, "hate" is a pretty strong word. Couldn't you have easily written that you "dislike" Cameron Diaz? Oh and the "or something" you were looking for involve stunts seen in True Lies or the Die Hard movies. Come on, Eagle Eye, really?
Travis on Dec 22, 2009
Like someone said dont think it will be a hit but it does look very fun....its nice seeing a non ethan hunt tom cruise.
Cody on Dec 22, 2009
looks ok. i'm sure i'll watch it off of netflix.......but not the theatre. and while watching the trailer...............all i could think of was how hit-girl would kick tom cruise ass all over the place. ( then she'd cut off his legs)
beavis on Dec 22, 2009
"Nobody move or I kill myself, then her!" Now that was funny.
John Doe on Dec 22, 2009
I'm digging the muse song.
lego on Dec 22, 2009
haha as much as ive been turned off by cruise lately, and hate diaz, this looks fun. great one liners. and going to see avatar in imax in half an hour
harrison on Dec 22, 2009
Tom Cruise is funny as hell when he wants to. Tropic Thunder anybody? This looks like it could be a fun date movie.. lil comedy.. lil action.. lil romance.. Keep everybody happy.
Hedgehog on Dec 22, 2009
Hate to say it, not usually my kind of thing but... I laughed. It does look fun. I'm a big fan of The Long Kiss Goodnight and this seems to tread on similar ground - - crazy comic book action with heaping doses of humor.
jeff on Dec 22, 2009
Wake up Tom! that bitch fucks up your face somethin nasty!! RUN!
DoomCanoe on Dec 22, 2009
i think the consensus here is... its looks aaaalllriiighhht
benjoi on Dec 22, 2009
I'm goint to hang myself when this crap hits the theathers. Atleast my world lost one less angle.
Yeah! on Dec 22, 2009
HELL FUC*ING YES HE'S BACK!
me on Dec 22, 2009
I'd rather sit through a 3 hour Scientology induction.
Gang Bang Gary on Dec 22, 2009
#25, are you SURE about that? This looks mildly amusing, something to rent one day.
Traveler on Dec 22, 2009
I hate myself for saying this, but it looks watchable, and funny enough. Dammit.
Mark on Dec 22, 2009
Looks like he picked every signature M:I-move and finally laughs about it. Very good stuff this could be.
Felix on Dec 22, 2009
I agree with most people that it looks like fun, but it's deffentially not my type of movie. I can always appreciate Cruise kicking ass and taking names and atleast it looks better than that shitty Bounty movie.
wrongturn687 on Dec 22, 2009
"This is wild!" haha.
Fuelbot on Dec 22, 2009
Mr. and Mrs. Smith meet Eagle Eye. Nonetheless, this looks really good
Sancle on Dec 22, 2009
Its funny ok, but im sure better movies will be out then to see in theaters, rent on DVD, says all over this trailer
agentX on Dec 22, 2009
Hmm looks a bit cheap. You cant really give Cruise a role thats so close to Mission Impossible's Ethan Hunt and then expect it to work in a comical sense.. this looks uncomfortable. That said, Cameron looks fine ;P
dom on Dec 22, 2009
looks very nice! cruise is cool!
boo on Dec 22, 2009
yawn. I'm a TC and CD fan but this movie looks like crap.
moviefan111 on Dec 22, 2009
From that picture I'm predicting that Tom Cruise will look exactly as crazy as Stephen King in t-minus 5 years and counting.
dRailer on Dec 22, 2009
I agree #8. (chuckle) I was thinking he was lookin' a bit rough. I wouldn't spend 90 minutes in a theater for it.
arjones on Dec 22, 2009
Looks hilarious. Also great to see hear another Muse song in a high profile trailer (last one I recall was "Take a Bow" in the Watchmen trailer).
Pete on Dec 22, 2009
Loud, mindless, incredulous popcorn tosh. Count me in.
Sleepykid on Dec 22, 2009
All I could think while watching this is did Tom wear lifts during every scene or was forced perspective used constantly so Cameron wouldn't tower over him by a good six inches?
ebbie on Dec 22, 2009
Is this going to ne the Mr and Mrs Smith for Cruise and Diaz. If I here Cruise is getting a divorce and hitching Diaz ...
JimD on Dec 22, 2009
Man, both Cruise and Diaz look ollllllllllllddddddddd. She is looking downright worn out.
Hugh on Dec 22, 2009
I read the original script and as I was watching the trailer, my thoughts were: "wow, somebody brought in serious rewrite!" It's not Mr. & Mrs. Smith, because Diaz's character is more like an innocent bystander who gets caught up in Tom Cruise's spy intrigue, except you just don't quite know which side he's on because it flip flops so much.
Drew Kerr on Dec 22, 2009
i saw this trailer when i saw AVATAR in IMAX 3D
Jason on Dec 22, 2009
Cruise should stick with comedy for a while... his bit in Tropic Thunder was hilarious. Sure, in real life he's a complete psycho and Diaz is a bit worn out but this movie looks like fun.
xan on Dec 22, 2009
so Alex you actually hate Diaz as a person? or her recent acting in films? I won't go as far as saying I hate Diaz, but I hate her recent acting in films. She has a chance to come back and wow us all, don't write her off so quick. "Nobody follow me, or I'll kill myself then her." great line, I'm in.
xerxex on Dec 22, 2009
Tom Cruise is.... Stupidly funny!! im gonna watch it!!
Said on Dec 22, 2009
well i dont look for originality in all the movies. if its original and good what else can i ask. if it looks like another film its ok as long as its still good. and i havent seen a bad action movie yet that Tom was in. and i always remember Cameron in her part in The Mask ( Aruughhhhhhh 😛 ) the trailer is fast and funny as others have said pretty funny one liners looks like its gonna be a fast and aloud fun two hours 😛 PS: yeah Tropic Thunder scene especially the last dance scene was awesome 😀
burak "Daequitas" on Dec 23, 2009
Not really sure what to make of it, seems like they never finished editing it properly.
Matthew on Dec 23, 2009
Looks very good. Blu ray is mine!
Razor on Dec 23, 2009
Like the WiseCrack agree with No1 *Nick Sears* this could put Tom Cruse back up there sounds a bit MI with a few Laughs. 🙂
Cineprog on Dec 23, 2009
I knew very little about this movie but watching that trailer has me interested, this could be good or total fail only time will tell.
Chase on Dec 23, 2009
Comedy/Action movies, not been too many of those lately, but now this and Cop Out. Looks pretty cool to me, I will definitely check this out.
Jeff C. on Dec 24, 2009
Agreeing with #2. God damn this is pure bait. And for some stupid reason people love Cameron Diaz. She fucked that trailer for me. She fucks every movie she's in. Except Vanilla sky. And whata shame... Tom is in this one as well. Shucks.
Ozzie Davis on Dec 24, 2009
lmao. Diaz is always amusing at least. Cruise? I like him funny. he should stay with funny. he's good with it. 🙂 I'm game.
dave13 on Dec 25, 2009
Looks cool. Too bad for the poor quality.
