20th Century Fox has released yet another action-packed trailer for their Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz summer vehicle Knight and Day.  While there are only bits of new footage in this third trailer, it continues to suggest that the film may be a fun return to guns-blazing, gravity-defying form for Cruise after his last pic, the lackluster WWII thriller, Valkyrie.

Here’s the official synopsis from 20th Century Fox for Knight and Day:

An action-comedy centered on a fugitive couple [Cruise and Diaz] on a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure where nothing and no one – even themselves – are what they seem.  Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the batle of truth vs. trust.

Translation?  Watch the odd couple that is Cruise’s fearless agent and Diaz’s everyday gal race from one explosive set piece to another, while finding time for the occasionally humorous and/or flirtatious moment here and there.

Will Knight and Day be good, silly fun then?  Just have a look at the new trailer and decide for yourself:

Having Cruise play a possibly nutso agent was a wise move on director James Mangold’s part, but I have my doubts about Diaz pulling off the flustered, “average person” role – mostly because, truth be told, she’s never really impressed me as an actress.

The CGI and green screen effects are just a bit dodgy in parts – the plane crash especially – but Knight and Day at least looks like it’ll be a fast-paced amusing romp.  Will it be a sort of sleeper hit, in the vein of the similarly-comedic explosion fest that was Mr. and Mrs. Smith?  I think it potentially could be.

What do you think?  Does Knight and Day look like a fun exercise in mindless but entertaining blockbuster action?  Sound off in the comments section below.

Knight and Day will arrive in theaters in the U.S. on June 25th, 2010.

  1. Valkyrie was an incredible movie. THis movie looks like fun.

    • Agreed.

  2. Looks like a lot of fun. Never really liked Tom Cruise to be honest, but this looks like an enjoyable role for him. I’m planning on seeing the Killers when it comes out and they look pretty similar in premise so I doubt I’ll be watching Knight and Day in june. Might catch it on DvD though.

  3. I think Im might see this movie after this trailer. Its kinda got MI3 feeling to it but in a comedic way!

  4. Renaissance of Tom Cruise’s career? Too early to tell

  5. The should just be honest and call this pile of crap, “Action Movie” or “Paycheck 2.”

    Seen it,
    Done it,,,
    Lived this film many times,,,

    “Get back or I’m going to shoot myself then the girl,,,,”

    That’s clever writing?????????
    Pile of crap.

  6. YAWN !! A total disaster. I prefer Cruise in action films not action comedies.

  7. I think Tom and Cameron have an equally appealing screen presence when together and just look at both of the pics above, they couple exquisitely as spies or just as common folk. This should be good…

    • did he have to wear special boots/shoes to enhance his height, now way he is taller than diaz
