Taipei, May 25 (CNA) Hollywood movie star Tom Cruise said he is thrilled to visit Taiwan
for the fourth time and expressed hope that moviegoers will enjoy his new action-horror film “The Mummy.”
“I’m very, very excited to be here. This is my fourth time in this country and I receive such a warm welcome every time. It’s really very special for me,” Cruise said at a press conference in Taipei, which was also attended by co-stars Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis and the film’s director Alex Kurtzman.
Cruise said “The Mummy” offers a different take on what constitutes a monster film.
Horror is different today than it used to be, he said, adding that it is important for storytellers to recognize that people are terrified by monsters but also intrigued and seduced by them. [FULL STORY]
