Tom Cruise has traversed New York on a helicopter, fire truck, motorcycle and speedboat to promote his new movie, Mission: Impossible III.
Tom Cruise tried to keep his itinerary secret
The star attempted to build up buzz for his latest film by taking the unusual modes of transport to the city's premiere and two other screenings.
Followed by fans, photographers and camera crews, he also caught rides in a sports car and a subway train.
The latest adventure in his film series is released around the world this week.
Cruise took a New York fire truck through Times Square
In Manhattan, a fire truck gave the star a lift through Times Square to a local heliport, where a helicopter whisked him to a premiere.
Less than an hour later, he pulled up on a motorcycle to the first opening of the movie at the Tribeca Performing Arts Centre.
The film's publicists tried to keep his route secret to generate excitement among fans and paparazzi who hoped to catch a glimpse of him around the city.
Photographer Charles Sykes said: "It's been my own mission impossible trying to chase him down.
"I didn't get any information from the publicist or movie people. I had to get word of mouth."
One fan who did see him, 18-year-old Eleonora Bershadskaya, said: "I don't think anything is too much for him, but I might be really shallow. I love Tom Cruise."
Cruise has embarked on a global promotional tour for the blockbuster film - directed by Lost creator JJ Abrams - despite the birth of his baby daughter on 18 April.
The actor has visited Rome, Paris and London and is returning to Los Angeles on Thursday for the Hollywood premiere.
Mission: Impossible III also stars Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ving Rhames and Billy Crudup.
