There’s no doubt we all love Tom Cruise in the big action, fast-paced, Mission:Impossible saga – and the unexpectedly impressive Jack Reacher – but it does feel like quite a while since he really delved into a character since the good old days. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved Edge of Tomorrow (or Live. Die. Repeat. for some of those who got confused with the title) and so beyond the upcoming The Mummy, M:I 6 and Top Gun: Maverick, it feels like the right time to see that cheeky smile again that helped defined his acting career.
This first trailer for American Made sees him team up with Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman again, and is reportedly based on the true story of a pilot who lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner during the 1980s.
Cruise plays Barry Seal, and it also stars Sarah Wright, Caleb Landry Jones and the always excellent Domhnall Gleeson, and the whole thing is a lot of fun.
