Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt have pulled out all the stops to promote their new film Edge of Tomorrow. The pair were scheduled to attend premieres in London, Paris and New York in one day. So on Wednesday morning at the crack of dawn, Tom and Emily kick-started their tour in the British actress' hometown. Arriving at Leicester Square in the rain, Emily, 31, lit up the iconic London tourist spot with her pink-and-red paisley dress. The new mum, who welcomed her daughter Hazel in February, showed no signs of tiredness as she walked the red carpet with Tom.

The Mission Impossible actor looked just as energetic, sharing a few jokes with his co-star as they met fans.

"3 premieres, 1 day. Let's do this," Tom told his 4.5million followers on Twitter that morning. "When I heard about the premiere idea of three in one day I just said, 'That's Tom's idea,' I knew it," said Emily in the lead-up to the challenge. "It had to be Tom Cruise's idea." "It's in theme of the movie," laughed Tom. "I thought it would be fun."

The sci-fi thriller tells of Tom's character reliving the events of one day over and over in an epic battle to save the world, with the action starting in London's Trafalgar Square.

Since the film takes both characters to France - where they face off against an insurmountable army of alien invaders - Tom and Emily's next stop was the City of Light. "We're not in training for it," laughed Emily, when asked about how she and Tom would cope on the day. "I think we should just sleep well the night before. I have a baby so I'm not sleeping as much anyway."

The gorgeous star, who married American actor John Krasinski in 2010, recently spoke about the couple's beautiful newborn daughter. "She's so cute," said Emily on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "She came out ready for a photoshoot. She was just perfect." "He's the greatest dad," she said of her hands-on husband. "Hazel loves him. He's like the burp king. He can get a beer burp out of this kid. It even surprises her you can tell, she's kind of taken aback by it. It's an underrated skill."
