Tom Cruise: 'Jack Reacher' NYC Premiere Postponed Due to School Shooting

Tom Cruise flashes a smile as he arrives at a taping for The Late Show with David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater on Monday (December 17) in New York City.

The 50-year-old actor is in town to promote his flick Jack Reacher. The flick was scheduled to premiere tonight, but was postponed due to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

“Out of respect for the families who lost loved ones in Newtown, Connecticut, we are postponing tonight’s event,” a statement from the film society read. “We extend our love and condolences to you. Our community grieves with yours.”

The Pittsburgh premiere of Jack Reacher, which was scheduled to take place last week, was also postponed in light of the devastating events.

    Francis Coppola director of the Godfather said Cruise was the hardest working actor he ever worked with and thats coming from a guy whos worked with legends like Deniro, Pacino, Brando, Hopper, Hackman.

    Did i forget to mention he was only 19 when he did the outsiders and i spelled equal wrong damn!!!!

    Oh wow. You’re obsessed, not to mention delusional! Whatever drugs you’re taking, cut back.

    One example: A month ago, gossip sites buzzed about a possible romance between Cameron Diaz and Cruise. In fact, theVanilla Sky and Knight and Day co-stars had run into each other in New York, sharing dinner with a group.

    Or another: a photo that circulated of Cruise out to dinner with a mystery woman. In fact, it was McQuarrie’s wife and he’d been cropped out of the picture.

    “We had a great laugh about that,” says McQuarrie, who is hesitant to discuss Cruise’s state of mind in anydepth. “We’ve talked very little about it. I don’t pry. I follow his example and keep it positive. I can’t imagine how I would have held up having a difficult year like that. He’s held up extraordinarily well. I feel for the guy.”

    Diaz says she doesn’t know what Cruise’s emotional connectivity is to the constant media attention around him, “but from what I’ve seen and how he handles stuff, I think that he’s done a very good job of being able to endure a lot. Because he’s certainly put through a lot.” But, she adds, “To make it this long in this business with that kind of attention, if it was going to break him or if it was something that bothered him, I don’t think he would be doing it at the level that he’s doing it.”

    But with his third marriage over, it remains to be seen how female fans factor into the Tom Cruise brand. With no Jerry Maguires on the horizon, and two back-to-back epic alien-fighting films in the pipeline, Cruise’s slate invites a more interesting question: does his personal life matter at the box office?

    “The good news for Tom Cruise is that most guys that want to go see him kick butt in Jack Reacher don’t give a darn about his personal life,” says Dergarabedian. “But the girls that go with them might.”

    Still, one of the world’s biggest movie stars may be one hit away from erasing a whole lot of headlines.

    A good movie provides bounce, but a great one? That holds the power of reinvention, says Dergarabedian. “Audiences have a short memory if you create something incredible.”

    Man on a Mission Says:

    “He’s incredibly astute about storytelling and cinema and what audiences will be thinking and what they will respond to,” says JJ Abrams, who helmed 2006′s Mission: Impossible III, starring Cruise. “He is the hardest-working person that exists. There is no one I’ve ever seen or read about who puts more of himself into his job. He’s tireless and sleeps so little. He sleeps for a few hours a night. He has the kind of energy and intensity that is completely unique to him.”

    With a passion for doing his own stuntwork, on set Cruise pushes filmmaking “to its absolute limits,” Pike says. “To be fair, the only time he really was concerned about safety is when I was shooting the scene where (my character) Helen gets tasered and I was five months pregnant. And I think Tom was on the edge of his seat, he was like, ‘Don’t hurt her, don’t hurt her. Make sure she doesn’t fall.’ He took tremendous care of me.”

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Says:

    Tom Cruise plans to return to Pittsburgh on Wednesday to show “Jack Reacher” for the “fans in the city that so graciously hosted the production of the film,” Paramount Pictures said in a brief statement Monday afternoon.
    However, there will be no red carpet during this time of mourning following the Connecticut school shooting. “The filmmakers and Tom Cruise convey their heartfelt sadness and their deep condolences to the families during this time,” Paramount said.

    Tom ist in unseren Augen der ausdrucksstärkste, fleißigste und begabteste Schauspieler der in Hollywood rumläuft. Er ist vielleicht ein wenig eigensinnig, deswegen gab es für Ihn noch keinen Oscar, aber bei seinem Werdegang wären wir vielleicht genauso. Wir haben jedenfalls großen Respekt vor seinen immer sozialkritischen Filmen. Das seine Katie Ihn so hau ruck sitzen lassen hat war nicht fair.

    Note to Tom Cruise: You don’t look taller by wearing a small sweater, you look like you bought your shirt in the child section. That is all. Jack Reacher is supposed to be 6’4”.
