SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Even though he's been a Hollywood star for three decades, Tom Cruise says he still has fun making movies.

Cruise was in Seoul on Thursday to promote "Jack Reacher," a thriller adapting Lee Child's novel "One Shot," part of the best-selling series about a mysterious ex-military investigator.

Appearing at a news conference with director Christopher McQuarrie and co-star Rosamund Pike, Cruise said, "It was so much fun making the film."

Pike, who played James Bond girl Miranda Frost in "Die Another Day" in 2002, said she and Cruise enjoyed good on-screen chemistry — something she said she "never thought" she'd say.

It was Cruise's fifth trip to South Korea, where "Jack Reacher" opens next Thursday. The 50-year-old actor was in Tokyo on Wednesday for the film's Japan premiere.
