The summer movie season really kicked into gear Wednesday with the premiere of Super 8 in Los Angeles, featuring some of Hollywood's biggest names.
Producer Steven Spielberg and director J.J. Abrams were joined by the sci-fi film's stars, including Elle Fanning and Kyle Chandler, as well as colleagues and friends such as Tom Cruise and Conan O'Brien, who explored the party hand-in-hand with his wife.
Cruise looked casual and happy as he strolled solo down the black carpet, stopping here and there to chat and seeming entirely at ease.
