COLLATERAL

TOM CRUISE (Vincent) has achieved unprecedented success in a career spanning two decades. He is a three-time Academy Award® nominee whose films have earned in excess of four billion dollars worldwide. In addition, while continuing to explore new artistic challenges, Cruise has utilized his professional success as a vehicle for positive change, becoming an international advocate, activist and philanthropist in the fields of health and education.

Through Cruise/Wagner Productions, which he founded in 1993 with his partner, Paula Wagner, Cruise has also moved seamlessly into the broader role of producer, bringing a range of diverse projects from new and established talents to the screen. The first film released under the C/W banner was the international hit "Mission: Impossible,” and, in 1997, resulted in the company being honored with the Nova Award for Most Promising Producers in Theatrical Motion Pictures. The company went on to release the critically acclaimed films "Without Limits,” "Shattered Glass,” "Narc” and the period thriller "The Others.” The last marked Cruise's first collaboration with director Alejandro Amenabar, whose film "Abre Los Ojos” became the basis for the C/W production "Vanilla Sky,” under the direction of Cameron Crowe. The producing team was honored recently with the UCLA/Producers Guild of America Vision Award.

Cruise is currently in pre-production, starring in and producing the third installment of "Mission: Impossible,” C/W's blockbuster franchise, which has grossed more than one billion dollars to date. He is also simultaneously producing Cameron Crowe's "Elizabethtown,” shooting this summer, and "Ask the Dust,” from Oscar®-winning screenwriter Robert Towne. 

Most recently, Cruise and Wagner, along with Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, produced the "The Last Samurai,” which grossed nearly half a billion dollars worldwide, in which Cruise starred as Captain Nathan Algren, earning his third Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor. The film received a Producers Guild of America nomination for Best Picture. Prior to that, he starred in Steven Spielberg's futuristic thriller "Minority Report,” as pre-cog specialist John Anderton.

Cruise made his feature film debut in 1981 at the age of nineteen in the romantic drama "Endless Love,” followed by the critically acclaimed "Taps,” co-starring Sean Penn and Timothy Hutton, and Francis Ford Coppola's "The Outsiders.” His breakout performance in "Risky Business” earned him his first Golden Globe nomination in 1983. The role of Maverick in Tony Scott's "Top Gun” catapulted Cruise to international stardom as the film went on to become the highest grossing picture of 1986. 

He next starred opposite Paul Newman in Martin Scorsese's "The Color of Money” and opposite Dustin Hoffman in Barry Levinson's Oscar®-winning "Rain Man.” In 1989, Cruise received his first Academy Award® nomination and earned the Golden Globe for Best Actor for his portrayal of Vietnam veteran and anti-war activist Ron Kovic in Oliver Stone's "Born on the Fourth of July,” which received a Best Picture nomination. His performance in Rob Reiner's "A Few Good Men,” opposite Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore, led to a third Golden Globe nomination, and, in 1997, he received his second Academy Award® nomination and the Golden Globe for Best Actor for his work in Cameron Crowe's "Jerry Maguire.”

In 1999, Cruise received critical acclaim for his powerful performance in Paul Thomas Anderson's ensemble drama "Magnolia,” earning a third Academy Award® nomination and his third Golden Globe, for Best Supporting Actor. That same year, he starred in Stanley Kubrick's final film, the psychological thriller "Eyes Wide Shut.”
