Happy Birthday: Doug Liman

Born: July 24, 1965 in New York City, New York, USA

[on Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow (2014)] Tom innately understands that audiences come to the theatre not to watch a god but to see a good movie, and he will do everything in his power to make the film as great as possible. Nobody takes the trust of the audience more sacredly than him. When I’m working on a film, I think about how it will play with a tiny audience of friends whose opinions I respect, basically a 40-bloc radius from my apartment in Manhattan. Tom is thinking how it will play with the entire planet Earth.
