'Knight and Day' teaser movie trailer unveiled

The teaser trailer for the made-in-Boston spy flick "Knight and Day," starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, was unveiled at a sneak peek "Avatar" screening last Thursday and has officially hit the Internet.

Now, that was fast.

Moviegoers at the screening were shocked at the quick turnaround. In fact, the James Mangold action comedy was still filming a scene in Spain when the promo screened last week.

A movie trailer released before the film actually wraps? Oh, the magic of Hollywood.

The good news is that Boston locales are definitely showcased in the two-minute promo, including shots at the Worcester Regional Airport, exteriors of the plane crash in Bridgewater, the bridal party at Jacob Wirth, shoot 'em up scenes filmed at a warehouse in East Boston as well as a scene at the classic Parisian brasserie Gaslight located at 560 Harrison Avenue featuring Cruise, Diaz and Marc Blucas.

One of the locally shot chase sequences, which was primarily filmed in South Boston's Waterfront District, involves Cruise jumping from a moving car with Diaz in the backseat.

In "Knight and Day," Cruise and Diaz have a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure, where nothing and no one--even the now fugitive couple--are what they seem.

Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth versus trust. "Knight and Day" is slotted to hit theaters on July 2, 2010.

Co-stars include Peter Sarsgaard (“An Education”) as a federal agent relentlessly pursuing the couple; Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as a CIA director trying to decipher the true purpose of their high-wire activities; Paul Dano (“There Will Be Blood”) as an eccentric genius behind a revolutionary technology; and Olivier Martinez (“Unfaithful”) as a ruthless arms manufacturer. Co-starring are Maggie Grace (“Taken”) and Blucas (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”).

It has been quite common for at least 15 years for trailers to be released before a movie wraps. Trailers for big summer films frequently are released a year before the movie's release date. "Independence Day" was one of the first films to do this.
