More Info IMDb

For forty-three years the world was been blessed with a man. You see, this man isn't especially tall, and he isn't especially strong, but he possesses the ability to run faster than any living creature, and  he has the ability to bring a mighty bear to its knees with the simplest of smiles. This man impressed the world by singing Bob Seger in his underpants and playing volleyball with his friends. This man has become one of the greatest action heroes to have ever lived, and he did so without firing a gun or throwing a punch for the duration of his ascension to the action hero throne. This man is Tom Cruise, and he is an endangered species. Only YOU can save him, which is why your participation is required so that the very last movie star isn't vanquished from the Hollywood system. So, jump in your car and strap yourself down because, this July at the Alamo Drafthouse, Tough Guy Cinema is putting the pedal to metal and setting it to CRUISE CONTROL.

WHAT IS CRUISE CONTROL? It's a celebration of all things that are right in this world. It's a five 35mm movie mystery celebration of the swiftest man in Hollywood. It is, above all else, Tom Cruise in cinematic perfection back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back. You will Cruise through the life of a man and witness all forms of miracles while soaking in everything he has done to help crack the code of this enigmatic titan of celluloid. You will witness RAW human power as a man will place himself in harms way every step of his career for your personal entertainment. You will cheer, you will cry, and you will be thankful for brushing off every single Tom Cruise detractor as you surrender to the pulse-pounding intensity of what one man, against all the odds, can accomplish. Prepare yourself, because once we set this baby to CRUISE, you will no longer be able to control what will happen to you. (Greg MacLennan)
