Robert Pattinson is signing up to work with a familiar director and Will Smith is stepping into a movie as Kristen Stewart steps out. Meanwhile, his sci-fi movie Oblivion hasn't even opened yet and already Tom Cruise is signing on for another futuristic film. Get the scoop on his upcoming role, which comedy model Kate Upton is starring in, and more of the most exciting casting news this week!
Tom Cruise may be one of the biggest movie stars in the world, but he's always down for a game on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Cruise has already played water war on the show, so this time Fallon upped the ante with a friendly round of egg roulette. The challenge? Pick an egg at random from a carton — it may be hard-boiled, it may be raw — and smash it against your head. I love this clip because Cruise was such a good sport and you can tell Fallon loves his job. It just makes me more excited for Fallon's impending gig on The Tonight Show!
Watch the clip after the jump.
Tom Cruise hugged, chatted, and giggled with his costars at the Oblivion premiere in LA last night. He made a Burberry-wearing Olga Kurylenko crack a smile on the red carpet and later shared a big hug with Andrea Riseborough, who wore a glamorous Elie Saab frock. He also flirted with his fans, who had crowded the Dolby Theatre for a chance to see Tom, who signed autographs and even kissed the hand of one woman. Other stars at the event included Game of Thrones knight Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Melissa Leo, and Morgan Freeman, who spent his time on the red carpet chatting with Olga and Tom while decked out in a tuxedo.
This was Olga's second big premiere in a row as she attended the screening of To the Wonder with costars Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams the previous night. She's had a packed schedule for the past few weeks, traveling the globe with Tom to premiere their film in South America and Europe. While in Germany, news circulated that Tom had commented that he "didn't expect" his divorce from Katie Holmes during an interview on a TV show. However, his rep now reveals that the quotes were entirely fabricated and he didn't address his recent divorce at all. We were on hand at the LA premiere to chat with Tom, Olga, and the rest of the cast — check back for our interviews soon!
Tom Cruise and Olga Kurylenko stepped onto the white carpet in London today, as their European press tour for Oblivion continued. Tom looked dashing in a three-piece suit, while Olga was stunning in a white Marchesa, embellished with black lace, at the BFI IMAX theater. The two have certainly racked up their frequent-flyer miles over the last few days as they toured South America before heading to Moscow on Monday. They brought Oblivion to Vienna on Tuesday, then continued on to Dublin, where a deserving Tom and Olga shared a Guinness. Rounding out their trip with work, Tom premiered Oblivion in Ireland last night with Olga before jetting off again.
Tom Cruise arrived at Dublin's Savoy Cinema last night to premiere Oblivion with his costar Olga Kurylenko. Olga appropriately wore Ireland's national color, green, with her Roland Mouret gown for their latest stop on a European press tour. Dublin welcomed Tom with open arms. Following a reception hosted by the Department of Foreign Affairs honoring his Irish ancestry, he celebrated by pouring pints at the Guinness Storehouse. Tom and Olga premiered Oblivion in Austria Tuesday after stopping in Moscow on Monday and South America last week.
Tom Cruise and his Oblivion costar Olga Kurylenko had a busy one yesterday in Moscow. They kicked things off with a morning photocall, to which Olga wore Stella McCartney. Later, Tom and Olga buddied up for a premiere. For the nighttime event, Olga picked a lilac Elie Saab gown. Tom introduced the big-budget film with a few words about wanting to go to Russia. He said, "I was always, you know, pushing the studios to say 'Look, I want to travel, I want to make films in different countries, with different actors.' It's one of the reasons that I started to produce films, because I love movies, but I also wanted to create stories that would allow a multi-cultural experience."
The duo moved on to Russia following a promotional stop in Brazil. Olga and Tom attended the Rio debut of Oblivion, and she apparently greatly enjoyed being there. She tweeted, "I loved Rio! Didn't stay long enough though. But I did have one to have a walk on the beach."
Tom Cruise was joined by his costars Andrea Riseborough and Olga Kurylenko at the world premiere of Oblivion in Buenos Aires, Argentina, yesterday. He wore a suit while Andrea donned an Elie Saab Couture dress. Tom posed for photos with fans on the red carpet ahead of the event, and even retweeted snaps of his Argentinean fans waiting for his arrival. This premiere marks a first for Tom, who has never opened a project in the country. Oblivion's publicity tour isn't over just yet, as Tom will be traveling to Russia to do promotional work before returning to the States for the US premiere.
