Tom and Olga get ready to smash the ice, (What?!?) while Joseph Kosinski watches...

Tom, Olga, and ‘Oblivion’ director Joseph Kosinski smashed the ice for good luck (What?!?)…

Tom, Olga Kurylenko and ‘Oblivion’ director Joeseph Kosinski were in Taipei, Taiwan Saturday for the ‘Oblivion’ red carpet premiere!

…And while TeamTC wasn’t there to cover it first hand (Unlike the L.A. premiere where we’ll be LIVE on the red carpet!), our TomCruise.com community and superfans helped us cover it for you LIVE, by sending us the best links, pics, and videos on the web to share with you as the event unfolded!

We’ve assembled them starting with Tom’s arrival to Taipei at the bottom of the page all the way up through his “cooking lesson,” red carpet premiere, and departure at the top of the page to give you a sense of the timeline…We hope you find the Taiwanese premiere as exciting as the Taipei people, online fans and TeamTC did and OH!, be sure to…享受包餃子!

UPDATE: That’s a WRAP! The premiere has concluded! Thank you everyone online that posted and sent us their tweets, pics and video! keep an eye on this page over the next several days as we add more to it and THANK YOU TAIWAN! -TeamTC
