Tom Cruise has whipped a US town into a frenzy amid claims he is due to turn up at a shopping centre.
The actor - who has been on a whistle-stop world tour promoting 'Mission: Impossible III' - is due to touch down at the Southshore Mall cinema for a private screening.
An unnamed fan won the meet-and-greet, and blockbuster preview, in an online competition.
The mall's general manager, Nina Morean, said: "It's absolutely thrilling.
"It's a wonderful opportunity, not only for the mall, but for our entire community. We're very excited."
She added: "I'd venture to guess most malls haven't had Tom Cruise visit.
"It'll be a fun opportunity for everybody."
Meanwhile, Cruise has completed his own impossible mission to attend the New York premiere of 'M:I III' at the Tribeca Film Festival.
The star - who is due to marry fiancée and mother of his daughter, Suri, Katie Holmes this summer - traversed Manhattan using various modes of transport.
His vehicles included a fire engine, a speedboat, a helicopter, sports car and the subway.
