TOM CRUISE A Hollywood Anomaly?

OBLIVION Premieres in Hollywood

Have you had a chance to see Tom Cruise’s new movie, ‘Oblivion‘? I admit I haven’t- the weekend completely got away from me- but I definitely plan on it! Tom is known for doing a lot of his own stunt work for his action movies. A stunt man who worked with Tom on ‘Jack Reacher’ was impressed with his skills.

“Tom is an anomaly, I’ve never worked with another actor who has the acumen for stunts that he does. He’s done so much and he’s trained for so many movies and so many different types of stunt work,  fighting, fire, explosions, car chases, motorcycles.
“He has such a good solid foundation of skills that you’re not really putting him in that much danger like you would with another actor when you’re working out the stunts. He’s more like one of the stunt guys. Tom is a very safe guy, he knows that he can put himself in these dramatic situations without injuring himself, there is a lot of skill to it.”
Impressive! Tom is also said to be both demanding and appreciative of everyone who works on his films. The stunt guy who worked with him explained:
“[Tom] is a taskmaster and there is a certain level that you need to be at to work with him. You have to get it done but he is so appreciative of everyone he works with, he surrounds himself with the best of the best and he knows he couldn’t make the movies that he does at this level without them.”
There is a reason why Tom Cruise is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, right?

Tom Cruise Stops By 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart'

Tom Cruise continues to promote his new movie, ‘Oblivion‘! It opens here in the United States this Friday. Abroad, ‘Oblivion’ is doing extremely well. This sounds like another Tom  Cruise hit. I can’t WAIT to see it.

Jon Stewart had fun with Tom, of course, on ‘The Daily Show.’ Is there anyone Jon can’t interview? I don’t think so! He and Tom really seem to have a nice time talking. Check out this clip.

TOM CRUISE Bought His ‘Oblivion’ Co-Star A SoulCycle

'Oblivion' - UK Premiere

That Tom Cruise can definitely be one thoughtful guy!  While in NYC promoting his new flick ‘Oblivion‘ with co-star Olga Kurylenkothe duo decided to take an upscale spinning class called SoulCycle.  The class is a bit different than other classes in that it lasts 45 minutes and gets people in the mood with candles and dim lighting.  Kurlyenko was apparently quite impressed with the class so Cruise decided to buy her a SoulCycle of her own!  According to The Sun;

“Tom’s always thinking of ways that he can make lives of people around him better, so when Olga was complaining that she wants to exercise but finds going to the gym boring, he took her to a SoulCycle class … which she loved.

“Tom had the bike shipped to her apartment in London to use when she gets back from the gruelling ‘Oblivion’ press tour.”

That is quite thoughtful, although I think part of the appeal of the class was the mood lighting!  Maybe Olga will just have to light candles at home when does her spinning to recreate the mood!

TOM CRUISE Flaunted His Acting Chops On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Tom Cruise Stops By 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Tom Cruise showed what makes him a movie star last night on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ He was there to promote his new film, ‘Oblivion.’ But you know Jimmy: he’s not going to just sit there and talk about shooting action scenes for an interview. So Jimmy decided to test Tom’s acting chops. He gave Tom some one-liners and asked Tom to deliver them. Of course he was up for the challenge. He’s Tom Cruise, after all. Check out how he did:

I’d say he nailed them, wouldn’t you? LOL Tom was all smiles outside the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ studio, too.

TOM CRUISE ‘No Pressure’ For His Kids

"Oblivion" - Los Angeles Premiere

Tom Cruise is one of the biggest movie stars in the world, so you would have to think that his kids would be a bit curious about the movie industry.  Son Connor has ventured into the movie biz himself already with a role in the movie ‘Red Dawn’.  And although the business is a tough one and not for everyone, Tom would be supportive of his kids no matter what they chose to do.  E! asked Tom what he would think if Suri decided she wanted to go into the business and here’s what he said;

“All my kids [can],”

“What I do is try to find out what they’re interested in and support them in that. There’s no pressure. I’m lucky. I love what I do. I think with them, it’s just find out what you want to do and support it.”

I think that’s the perfect answer.  I know there are a lot of actors who really don’t want their kids to follow in their footsteps but it seems natural to me. I’m happy to see that Tom is so supportive.

Hot Guy Of The Day TOM CRUISE

arrives at the "Oblivion" Premiere

Tom Cruise stepped out in LA last night for the premiere of his new movie, ‘Oblivion.’ He was looking good in his gray suit as he worked the red carpet and chatted up reporters. You have to hand it to Tom: he’s the consummate movie star. He knows exactly what he’s supposed to do, and he does it. No standing around looking awkward or barely being able to talk to the press. It’s part of the job!

I, for one, am looking forward to ‘Oblivion.’ I’m  genuinely curious to find out what happened to Tom’s character. And between Tom and Morgan Freeman, you can’t really go wrong, right? Despite the spring weather, I’m definitely going to be sitting in the movie theater.

TOM CRUISE: Ready To Seek ‘Oblivion’ With Tom?

tom cruise oblivion (17)

Here are some fantastic pictures of Tom Cruise’s new movie, ‘Oblivion.’ I was curious about this movie. Then I saw a preview at the movie theater. Now I’m READY to see ‘Oblivion‘! I want to know what, exactly, is going on- LOL. Here’s what ‘Oblivion’ is about:

2077: Jack Harper (Cruise) serves as a security repairmen stationed on an evacuated Earth.  Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying alien threat who still scavenges what’s left of our planet, Jack’s mission is almost complete.  In a matter of two weeks, he will join the remaining survivors on a lunar colony far from the war-torn world he has long called home.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, Jack’s soaring existence is brought crashing down after he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft.  Drawn to Jack through a connection that transcends logic, her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he thought he knew.  With a reality that is shattered as he discovers shocking truths that connect him to Earth of the past, Jack will be pushed to a heroism he didn’t know he contained within.  The fate of humanity now rests solely in the hands of a man who believed our world was soon to be lost forever.

Doesn’t that sound GOOD? You can check out some behind-the-scenes ‘Oblivion’ featurettes on YouTube. And make sure to check out the pictures below: some are screen shots and others are behind-the-scenes pictures of Tom filming. It hits theaters next week, on April 19!
