A nice image, you might think, with Tom Cruise looking remarkably handsome in the middle. But it's much more than that! Examine this photo closely, and you'll see that it contains 22 references to 22 different Cruise films, all from the past 25 years. If you can spot them all you could win an Empire subscribers cover (below) signed by Cruise himself. Sorry, the competition is now closed.

His career has now spanned four decades, and Tom Cruise remains at the top of his profession. Ahead of the release of Edge Of Tomorrow, where he dies over and over again while trying to fight alien invaders, we sat down to go back through Cruise's back catalogue with the man himself, and learn about the films that made him.
