Tom Cruise & Elle Fanning's “Super 8” Premiere Night

Posted Thursday June 9, 2011 8:04 AM GMT

Stepping out for a swanky evening, Tom Cruise and Elle Fanning were spotted at the premiere of “Super 8” in Westwood, California last night (June 8).

The “Top Gun” stud looked handsome as he posed next to the “Somewhere” sweetie at the Regency Village Theatre before heading inside for the screening.

And it seems that writer-director JJ Abrams has a lot riding on “Super 8’s” success as it’s his first writer-director gig.

It’s also his first non-franchise film, therefore Abrams is banking on a big opening weekend to prove he’s more than just a blockbuster guy.

Enjoy the pictures of Elle Fanning and Tom Cruise at the Los Angeles premiere of "Super 8" (June 8).
