Thompson on Hollywood

The TV spots for high-octane action comedy Knight and Day inspired me to tweet: "Knight and day with cruise and diaz looks cheesy. Even with top dollar vfx."

Readers immediately responded with the hope that director James Mangold (Walk the Line) might deliver the goods on June 25. Check out the more nuanced clip below. I am now guardedly optimistic. What is giving me pause? Jacked-up Tom Cruise on adrenaline. The old-as-the-hills question of whether the spy is trustworthy. (The Fox/New Regency script is credited to TV scribe Patrick O'Neill; besides Mangold partner Cathy Konrad, ex-Revolution execs Todd Garner and Joe Roth are among the producers.)

Clip on the jump.

    Hi Anne,

    I love your site - I'll have to disagree with you on this - I still think it looks cheezy. And some of the action sequences look WAY to computer-y. Perhaps I'm too picky about these things? But on principle I don't watch Tom Cruise movies, so I'll never find out!

    Keep up the great work!
