While visiting New York for the May 3 screenings, Cruise is expected first to appear live at MTV's Times Square studios for its program "TRL." Then he plans to crisscross Manhattan by motorcycle, speedboat, taxi, helicopter, sports car and subway before landing at showings of the movie in Tribeca, Harlem and, ultimately, the Ziegfeld Theatre for the film festival premiere.
"Tom has always enjoyed finding new ways to connect with the fans and we're both excited to be sharing the movie with them on this incredible stage," Paula Wagner, Cruise's producing partner, said Wednesday in announcing the event with Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal.
"Mission: Impossible III," starring Ving Rhames, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Michelle Monaghan, is scheduled to open nationwide May 5. "Alias" and "Lost" creator J.J. Abrams is the director.
The Tribeca Film Festival, now in its fifth year, is set for April 25-May 7, reports AP.
