The Knight & Day update nobody asked for

Friday July 2nd 2010

A seemingly never-ending supply of shit posters (including the one above – which we can’t help but praise for the perfectly circular arc of Tom Cruise’s hair) couldn’t save Knight & Day when it opened to a tragic $20 million weekend box office in the States, making it Cruise’s least successful action movie in over two decades.

The film is still over a month away from a UK release, but has just been announced as the usually-eagerly-anticipated People’s Premiere at this year’s Film4 Summer Screen, opening the festival on Thursday 29th July. I can’t say I’m not disappointed (I’m very disappointed) but I will at least try to reserve my judgement.

According to one industry source:

‘it’s actually pretty good’

I guess stranger things have happened.
