Tom Cruise: The Last Movie Star

A new documentary about Tom Cruise is now streaming! Tom Cruise: The Last Movie Star explores the actor’s career, from his rise to fame in the 1980s to his recent resurgence as one of the biggest movie stars in the world.

Having emerged as the new face of Hollywood in the 1980s, Tom Cruise had an unparalleled run of box-office hits for twenty years. Yet, in 2005, right at the peak of his success, the bubble finally burst. And Cruise suffered an unexpected public-image meltdown. With the studios and his fans turning on him, his future looked doubtful. But through a single-minded commitment to creating original, exhilarating blockbusters, he risked life and limb to get back to the very top.

“Tom Cruise is one of Hollywood’s most fascinating and enigmatic figures,” says Tom O’Dell, director of Tom Cruise: The Last Movie Star. “This documentary tells the story of his incredible career and how he has managed to stay at the top for over 40 years. It’s a must-see for any fan of Cruise or cinema.”

Tom Cruise: The Last Movie Star is the story of how Cruise’s stock fell so low and how he staged the most remarkable career revival in the history of Hollywood. In an entertainment world dominated by Superhero franchises, CGI, and streaming, he has revitalized his onscreen persona and revived the fortunes of the post-COVID theatrical experience, and become the world’s biggest movie star once again.

“I think it’s easy to forget how remarkable Tom Cruise’s career has been, with so many twists and turns,” says Lise Romanoff, CEO and Managing Director of Vision Films.

“Even in the 1980s, when a lot of people saw him as a heartthrob, he was working with the best in the business – Martin Scorsese, Oliver Stone, Paul Newman, Dustin Hoffman. He was a movie star. But he was, first and foremost, an actor. Then just as he successfully transformed himself into an action star with the Mission Impossible films and his work with Spielberg, his public image fell apart. Who would have predicted in 2005 that nearly twenty years later, he’d be in his sixties and the biggest star in Hollywood again?” Romanoff adds.
