Tom Cruise was out to support rising star Elle Fanning at the premiere of her new film Super 8... See the pics here!

Last night saw the premiere of new sci-fi thriller Super 8 written and directed by JJ Abrams and produced by none other than Steven Spielberg. Held in Los Angeles, the event drew a crowd of American A-listers, including Tom Cruise.

Super 8 stars Elle Fanning (younger sister of Dakota), who is fast making her mark on Hollywood at just 13 years old. Elle looked every inch the red-carpet pro, with tumbling blonde locks and a beautifully embroidered, ethereal cream dress. She looked so at ease and grown-up in front of the cameras, it’s hard to believe she’s still so young – we definitely think she’s one to watch.


Tom Cruise, though not in the film himself, was apparently a presence on the set throughout filming. Tom starred with Elle's older sister Dakota Fanning in War of the Worlds in 2005. In jeans and an open-necked black shirt, he looked cool and casual last night as he supported Elle and others in the movie.
