Tom Cruise: I Came Up With The Concept Of International Movie Premieres

0

Tom Cruise credits himself with the concept of international premieres, revealing he didn’t like spending months promoting films like Top Gun around the globe.

The actor claims he came up with the idea of red carpets around the world while he was stuck in Paris, France promoting Top Gun, while others were working on his films The Color of Money and Rain Man back in Hollywood.

He recalls, “It took four months (to do) this tour… You’d spend weeks in one place… (Martin) Scorsese was editing The Color of Money, we were at an early draft of Rain Man and I was there in Paris and I was like, ‘I wanna make movies’.

“That’s when I kinda came up with the idea of doing a country… in a couple of days. I like premieres… so I came up with the idea of, ‘Let’s have premieres in different countries and then kind of do it that way…’ It took me a few years to get it going.”

Now Cruise has international premieres mapped out months in advance and he recently hit red carpets in Paris, London and New York in a day to promote new action film Edge of Tomorrow.
