So imagine our surprise that a snazzy trailer is already up and running for the film, which doesn't open until summer 2010.
And as teases go, this one's pretty compelling. Playing a smooth, lethal secret agent, Cruise slathers on the loopy charm whether dispensing bad guys, sweet-talking a daffy Diaz or landing a jet in a cornfield. The trailer has the right mix of humor, intrigue and explosions to get us ready to order tickets now.
But then we're suckers for a big summer movie. How about you?
