KNIGHT AND DAY (2010)
Knight and Day || Returning home to Boston from buying car parts in Wichita, June Havens (Cameron Diaz) collides with Roy Miller (Tom Cruise) at the airport, twice, and is bumped to a later flight. CIA Agent John Fitzgerald (Peter Sarsgaard), believing June is working with Roy, puts her back on the plane. While June is in the plane’s restroom, Roy subdues the passengers and flight crew, all agents sent by Fitzgerald, and crash-lands the plane in a cornfield. He drugs the shocked June, warning that agents will come after her.
Waking at home, June prepares for her sister April’s (Maggie Grace) wedding, and learns she wants to sell their father’s 1966 Pontiac GTO tri-power, which June had planned to restore as a wedding gift. June is picked up by Fitzgerald and his agents. Roy appears, killing numerous agents in a highway chase and rescuing June. She flees to her ex-boyfriend Rodney (Marc Blucas), a firefighter, before Roy arrives and pretends to take June hostage.
Roy persuades June that she is safer with him, and reveals that he is in possession of the Zephyr, a perpetual energy battery; he had been assigned to guard its inventor, Simon Feck, until Fitzgerald tried to steal the battery, framing Roy. In Brooklyn, June and Roy discover Feck has gone into hiding but left Roy a clue that he is in the Alps. They attacked by henchmen sent by Spanish arms dealer Antonio Quintana (Jordi Mollà). Drugged again, June drifts in and out of consciousness as they are captured and then escape to Roy’s off-the-grid island. Accepting a call from her sister, June accidentally leads Quintana’s men to the hideaway. Escaping Quintana’s unmanned aerial assault vehicle in a helicopter, Roy knocks June out to circumvent her fear of flying.
