cannot understand why his movie Valkyrie
has attracted so much criticism - because it's such an "important" story.
The actor insists the movie - which tells the true story of a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler
during World War II - will be a box office hit after wowing audiences at a test screening earlier this month.
He says: "It (the criticism) just doesn't make sense to me either. The moment I read the screenplay I knew it was an important story, and as it's a true tale of heroic resistance to one of the great villains of history, I can't imagine that people won't want to see it."
Valkyrie, starring Cruise alongside actors Kenneth Branagh
, Terence Stamp
, and comedian Eddie Izzard
, is due to hit cinemas on December 26th.
