Here’s a quick fact for you: Tom Cruise is 54 years old. I am pretty sure that he has a Lazarus Pit stashed away somewhere. Here’s another fact: when he’s not doing an endless string of action films, Tom Cruise is a pretty good actor. He’s got a new movie coming out this fall that may or may not remind us of that. Let’s take a look.
I’m not gonna lie, Tom Cruise might be a crazy person but I thoroughly enjoy his movies so I am pretty much on board for this regardless. Doug Liman, who previously directed Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow directed this, so there’s another reason.
Plus, this kinda looks fun? Cruise is pretty underrated as an actor. Movie star status, that some folks can’t see him as any character other than Tom Cruise, is a shame because he does some great work. I’m not 100% sold on this movie being good, but I am pretty sure that Cruise will be good in it.
American Made comes out September 29th. I suppose we’ll find out then.
