Tom Cruise defied the rain to meet fans at the start of a red carpet race that takes him from London to Paris and New York within 24 hours to promote his latest film.

Cruise and his co-star Emily Blunt were in London for the first of three world premieres of 'Edge Of Tomorrow'. The pair were joined by the film's director, Doug Liman.

They will next fly to Paris and on to New York as the red carpet is rolled out again for the film to have its second and third showings.

Speaking before the premiere, Blunt said the idea was typical of Cruise, saying: "When I heard about the premiere idea of three in one day I just said, 'that's Tom's idea'."

The science fiction film, which has the tagline "Live, Die, Repeat", stars Cruise and Blunt as soldiers fighting off an alien attack, only to be killed then forced to relive the battle over and over until they come closer to defeating their enemies.
