Press Release Parade: Tom Cruise Takes Tribeca Film Festival / Jossip
Press Release Parade: Tom Cruise Takes Tribeca Film Festival
— Wed, Apr 12, 2006 —

As the Tribeca Film Festival nears, each day is filled with anticipation, excitement, and at least a half dozen press releases from Rubenstein PR — yes, that Rubenstein PR. Normally we completely ignore them (only emails with subject lines about "comp tickets" do we open), but this one got our attention for its subject: "Tribeca Film Festival Announces Premiere of M:i:III."

Yes, that M:I:III, which means that Tom Cruise.

Tom Cruise, the most exciting and successful action star in the world, returns to one of his signature roles, Secret Agent Ethan Hunt, in the summer????????s most highly anticipated action thriller, ???????Mission: Impossible III??????? ???????? and Cruise will celebrate the U.S. premiere of the film on May 3 at the Tribeca Film Festival with a full day of screenings and events throughout Manhattan as part of ???????Mission: NYC.??????? Bringing the film and Cruise directly to fans and filmgoers, ???????Mission: NYC??????? kicks off with Cruise appearing live on ???????TRL??????? in Times Square and culminates nearly six hours later with the U.S. premiere of the film at the Festival.

???????We????????re thrilled that Tom Cruise is bringing ???????M:i:III???????? to the Tribeca Film Festival and New York City,??????? said Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Robert De Niro.

Even for Rubenstein, we're shocked they used the language "the most exciting and successful action star in the world." It may be true, but not for the reasons they'd like to highlight. And if things go accordingly, Katie Holmes will be welcoming her first child into the world at New York Presbyterian the day before.

The full work-of-Scientology press release, after the jump.
