Knight & Day Trailer

James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma) is directing a new action film called Knight & Day, which stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz as a fugitive couple who have adventures about trust and betrayal and all that. The concept probably isn’t as important as the way in which it’s portrayed, and the trailer below should convey much of what the film is about. I kind of like the humor, which is a prerequisite for glib action films, but I also really like the way in which the Cruise character comes off as a con man who isn’t a trickster with the things he says (which, as you’ll see, are sometimes contradictory) but by his sheer audaciousness. The action doesn’t look bad, either.
