US actor Tom Cruise turned up for the Argentine premiere of his new film Oblivion, thrilling a crowd of fans eager for a glimpse of the Hollywood megastar. Sporting his signature smile and dark sunglasses, Cruise arrived by car at the Village cinema complex in Buenos Aires' Recoleta neighbourhood and strode a red carpet amid tight security.

Hundreds of fans shouted with glee when Cruise showed up though only a handful had the privilege of having their photo taken with the movie star, who also signed a few autographs.Cruise was joined at the screening by co-stars Andrea Riseborough and Olga Kurylenko, who hours before had accompanied the actor on a visit to Teatro Colon, considered one of the world's leading opera houses. Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri referred to Cruise as an outstanding figure in the arts and a guest of honour in the Argentine capital.

Cruise plays a drone repairman trying to protect Earth from warring aliens in Oblivion, which hearkens back to the science fiction films of the 1970s.
