Connor Cruise

Connor Cruise (son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman) stars alongside Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) in the upcoming teen action thriller Red Dawn, which hits theaters Nov. 21.

In Red Dawn, a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky – shockingly, the U.S. has been invaded and their hometown is the initial target. Quickly and without warning, the citizens find themselves prisoners and their town under enemy occupation. Determined to fight back, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a guerrilla group of fighters. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.

Connor plays Daryl Bates, a gun toting member of the Wolverines and best friend to Hutcherson’s character. Although this isn’t technically Cruises’ film debut–he played a young Will Smith in ‘Seven Pounds’ back in 2008–this is his first major role in a film. Check out Connor in the new trailer below.
