Tom Cruise to visit Taiwan to promote movie

Taipei, March 20 (CNA) Tom Cruise, one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, is scheduled to visit Taiwan April 5-6 to promote his latest movie, a local film distributor said Wednesday. Cruise, who will be visiting Taiwan for the third time, will only attend the local premiere of the sci-fi action movie "Oblivion" and is not scheduled to appear in press conferences or give any interviews, the company said. The movie, directed by Joseph Kosinski, director of the 2010 sci-fi film "Tron: Legacy," was shot in digital 4K resolution in the United States and Iceland. It tells the story of a drone repairman stationed on Earth who rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft, an event that prompts him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands. Cruise, 50, rose to fame for his role in the 1986 film "Top Gun" as a F-14 pilot. He has been nominated for three best actor Academy Awards and has won three Golden Globes.
