The new featurette for 20th Century Fox’s Knight and Day finds stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz seemingly enjoying themselves on location in the lovely city of Sevilla, Spain.
Knight and Day revolves around June Havens (Diaz), a working gal who’s prepping to walk her sister (Maggie Grace) down the aisle – until she runs into Miller (Cruise) at the airport. Things take a turn for the peculiar when Miller takes out the entire flight crew on June’s flight home and pulls her into a elaborate mission to protect some all-powerful battery from enemy forces – a matter made all the more complicated due to the fact that Miller may be completely insane.

While the Knight and Day footage released so far has featured little in the way of witty banter or memorable one-liners, it seems as though director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) will keep the film’s tone light and humorous throughout. The editing doesn’t seem too chaotic, so the chase sequences and explosive set pieces look to be actually comprehensible – something I’ve personally come to appreciate in the age of Michael Bay action movies.
Knight and Day could potentially be an entertaining, globe-trotting adventure that plays out like a less serious version of the Jason Bourne films or Angelina Jolie’s upcoming spy thriller Salt. It looks as though Cruise still has what it takes to play a death-defying super man after all, which will bode well for his return as Ethan Hunt in next year’s Mission: Impossible 4.
What do you think? Does Knight and Day look like a fun summer blockbuster? Does Cruise still have what it takes? Sound off in the comments section below.
Knight and Day hits theaters in the U.S. on June 25th, 2010.
