The movie that I’ve been most excited for ever since it was announced is almost upon us. I don’t feel like going into details about the film as I’ve already done so in an earlier post, but enjoy these lovely featurettes. 

The cocaine crash featurette:


Tom Cruise flies high in the first trailer for ‘American Made’

STORYLINE: A pilot lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner in the south during the 1980s.

The trailer for American Made is here and I am rightly excited! I love a man in uniform. I love Tom Cruise in uniform. 🙂

“This is your captain speaking.”

In the first trailer for the movie that I’ve been anticipating since 2015, we see TC as American smuggler Barry Seal crash landing a small plane full of cocaine in a suburban neighborhood. He gets out of the plane covered in cocaine and starts handing out cash to a young boy and his sister in exchange for the boy’s bike and their silence.

The weight gain is obvious in the face. Haha!

In another scene, his wife tells him that there are bills blowing around in the back yard to which Seal replies, “I’ll rake it up in the morning.” I laughed so hard! Sarah Wright plays Lucy Seal and her chemistry is on par with Tom’s.

A Southern TC? Yes, ma’am! Although some people thinks that he is too handsome for the role. *sighs* You can’t please everyone. I don’t go to the movies for TC’s good looks, I go for his acting chops. Just ignore the nice looking man on the screen and try to get in his acting, yes?

However, I am wondering how they’re going to portray Seal being gunned down. This might be Oscar bait for TC as well, but I won’t hold my breath because… Hollywood.

The movie will hit the big screen on September 29th and it also stars Domhnall Gleeson.

It looks promising, it looks better than The Mummy, I am ready to see this, take my money already!

This movie was directed by Doug Liman who also directed Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow.

Watch TC as a risky drug-peddling pilot in the trailer below:


Let’s get made; American Made!

“I love stories of improbable heroes working against the system, and Barry Seal took the government, and our country, for an unbelievable ride. Interpreting his story has the makings for an entertaining film that is equal parts satire, suspense and comedy—and always surprising.”
Doug Liman

Originally titled Mena, American Made is set to hit the big screen on September 29th, 2017 and I’ll just have to bear it and wait patiently (Originally, it was supposed to have a Jan 2017 release). I’ve read Seal’s story and I’ve been excited for the film since filming began in 2015. 

This is the movie I’m most excited about for 2017!

The film is set in the 1980s.

Tom Cruise will play Barry Seal, a hustler and American pilot who gets coaxed by the CIA into participating in a covert operation that involved Seal going from drug smuggler to drug informant. While working for the CIA, he spied on the infamous Medellin Cartel, including leader Pablo Escobar, during the height of 1980s cocaine drug trafficking. He also ended up involved in Nicaraguan and Contra politics, which played a role in the Reagan Administration’s Iran-Contra scandal.

We are family: Barry and Debbie in 1981 with their children, from left Aaron, Christine and Dean. At the time he was smuggling drugs from Colombia for the Medellin cartel with the US authorities in complete ignorance

‘The exciting thing to me is to get into a life and death situation,’

Barry Seal

Known as a rebel adventurer, Seal was the first American to see the inner workings of the powerful Medellin cartel. He was fearless while undercover and his inside information led to prosecutions. At that time, the Drug Enforcement Administration was battling the cocaine explosion.

A price was put on his head for turning federal witness and Seal died in a hail of bullets at the hands of Colombian hitmen. *Cringes* 

And TC does justice to any uniform he puts on. This time, a pilot’s…


Back in action: Tom Cruise was spotted in a pilot's uniform and free from bruises on the set of the new crime thriller Mena in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday

The film is directed by Doug Liman, who previously collaborated with TC on Edge of Tomorrow. TC always want to give the audience their money’s worth and this film is going to be a masterpiece if things go according to Seal’s story. TC had to gain weight for the role for Barry Seal weighed 280+ pounds and was known as ‘El Gordo’ (The Fat Man), but the actor did not pile on the pounds.

I like what I’ve seen of TC’swardrobe so far on the set:

The brown leather jacket has already gotten rave reviews and many people are asking where they can order it.

Costume: The father-of-three was dressed in double denim sporting a chambray shirt and trousers
