    Colin Farrell reminisces on ‘Minority Report’ experiences 

    It’s been 20 years since ‘Minority Report’ came out, and actor Colin Farrel still has vivid memories of the experience.

    In an interview with ‘Yahoo! Entertainment,’ he talks about sharing food with Steven Spielberg and working with Tom Cruise.

    The film ‘Minority Report’ was released in 2002 and starred Tom Cruise as the main character John Anderton - the head of a crime unit in a futuristic society where people can be stopped before they commit crimes with help from three psychics known only as "precogs." In the interview, Farrell remembers:

    "I remember my first day of work on ‘Minority Report,’" Colin said. "I was very nervous. I was doing a scene with Tom Cruise and I had to sort of lead him into this room," he explained. "And Spielberg was sitting there eating a sandwich, and he goes, 'Do you want half my sandwich?' And I was like, 'No, I'm fine, thank you.' He goes, 'You sure? It's a good sandwich.' I just remember thinking, 'Oh my god, that's Steven Spielberg asking me if I want half his sandwich,'" Farrell said. "It was very sweet of him."

    The "Minority Report" cast also included Samantha Morton, Max von Sydow, and Neal McDonough. It was directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the Philip K. Dick novel, “The Minority Report”. The film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $358 million worldwide on a budget of $102 million. Film critics praised Spielberg's direction and raved about Cruise's acting, the visuals, and the screenplay. The film won the Academy Award for Best Sound Editing and was nominated for four other Oscars, including Best Picture.
