From his iconic slide across the floor of a suburban Chicago living room in Risky Business to his considerably riskier footwork atop a Dubai skyscraper in Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise has spent a remarkable three decades as the world’s most popular movie star, and one of its most adventurous and unpredictable actors. An instant pop culture sensation for his role as the fighter pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in Top Gun, Cruise quickly cemented his serious dramatic credentials opposite Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man and in Oliver Stone’s Born on the Fourth of July, while breaking box-office records in blockbusters like Minority Report, The Last Samurai, War of the Worlds and the Mission:Impossible series. As he takes on his latest, sure to be iconic role in the Paramount action drama Jack Reacher, we salute Cruise with a special in-person event followed by a seven-film sampler of his extraordinary career. Series programmed by Scott Foundas.
