Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise — or Ah Tang Ge, a colloquial nickname expressing closeness in Taiwan — has fulfilled his promise to Taiwanese fans by visiting Taiwan for the fourth time to promote his new film The Mummy. Cruise, along with director Alex Kurtzman and actresses Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis, attended the Taiwan premiere at the Miramar Entertainment Park in Taipei yesterday.
According to Universal Picture Co., Cruise told fans when wrapping up his last visit to Taiwan in 2013 that he would return to the country to promote his future movies. Earlier this year, he took the initiative to tell the company’s US headquarters he would like to visit Taiwan again, hoping to thank Taiwanese fans for their support and recognition all these years.
The latest trip has made Cruise Taiwan’s most frequent Hollywood visitor. His previous visits were in 2000, 2001 and 2013. The new movie is scheduled to hit theaters in Taiwan on June 7.
