Get Tom Cruise’s Persol and Ray Ban sunglasses from Knight and Day

Can Tom Cruise work his magic on another pair of sunglasses?
Back in the fifties and sixties Ray-Ban Wayfarers began to gain popularity amongst celebrities, but by the eighties their sales were looking pretty low, only selling 18,000 pairs. But when they signed a product placement deal that got their shades in to 60 films and TV shows a year, everything changed. In the year they were seen on Tom Cruise in Risky Business their US sales went up to 360,000. So we know this is a man who can pull off, and sell, sunglasses.
That’s why it was no surprise to see Tom rocking the sunnies in his new movie, Knight and Day. And he’s branching out; going for a new pair of Ray-Ban’s, shiny silver mirrored Aviators, and a pair of round Persol tortoise-brown sunglasses. Will he be able to work the same magic on these sunglasses as he did back in the eighties? Only time will tell, but what we can tell you is that the film actually looks very cool. It’s a return to simple action-packed movies for Tom, whose personal life seems to have affected his career recently.
Roy Miller (Cruise) he bumps into June (his Vanilla Sky co-star Cameron Diaz) who he takes a liking to, and decides to involve her in whatever he is up to. Thinking she’s working with Miller, other agents go after June, whose whole life gets turned upside down. Convinced that Miller is a spy gone rogue, June tries to escape from him with the other agents, but he always manages to ‘rescue’ her.
Of course eventually she begins to learn from Miller and the pair kicks butt together, when it is revealed that he is actually trying to protect an inventor and his invention. Full of car chases, gunfights and Cameron Diaz in a bikini, we think that Knight and Day is a great summer movie for a couple of hours of mindless viewing.
