Tom Cruise remained energetic for his epic three premieres in one day marathon to promote new film Edge Of Tomorrow.

The Hollywood actor, who stars in the sci-fi thriller, thanked fans as he jetted from London to Paris to New York with his co-star Emily Blunt and director Doug Liman for the global event.

"We made it! Thanks to all the fans who came to see us - from dawn in London to midnight in NYC with Paris in between," he tweeted. "I got to meet fans in London, Paris and New York today - amazing."

The first premiere took place at the BFI Imax in rainy London around 6am, before the trio headed to Paris in a private helicopter for the second premiere at Champs-Elysees. The last premiere took place in New York at 10pm EST.

"We made it to New York. Here we are - the final destination," he joked.

Asked how he convinced the cast and crew to attempt the triple premiere, Tom said they didn't need much persuading. "They love it, they wanted to do it. London, Paris, New York in one day, they're pumped about it, they're excited about it."

Emily, who gave birth to a daughter in February, joked that the lack of sleep had prepared her for the challenge of attending three events in one day.

The actress, who enjoyed three outfit changes throughout the day, said: "I'm used to it so maybe I'll fare better than any of them."

Tom stars as Major William Cage, who is stuck in a time loop and must relive the same day of combat over and over as he fights alien invaders in action flick Edge Of Tomorrow.
