The first trailer for James Mangold‘s Knight & Day has hit, and we’re not sure what to make of it. It’s an action comedy hybrid, that stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, who previously worked together on the drama, Vanilla Sky. Will they be able to rekindle that magic with their latest film?
The film centers on a lonely woman whose harmless meeting with a man turns her life upside-down when a super spy takes her on a violent worldwide journey. The story might sound far-fetched, but people will come up with anything to see these two together again, and the trailer proves it.
First off, who even knew that Peter Sarsgaard was in this movie? Maggie Grace‘s casting was well noted during the film’s production but his appearance took me for a loop. Secondly, is this film supposed to be funny? It’s hard to pick up on the comedic tone, because it’s so badly written. You’ll have your own opportunity to decide if Knight & Day is as bad as you think when you view the trailer.
The film debuts in theaters next year on July 2, 2010.
You can see the trailer for yourself over on EOnline.
Do you think Cruise and Diaz still have what it takes to open a number one movie?
