Ever had a stunt that Tom Cruise didn’t like? It’s hard to say, but the actor is back with a new promo video for Top Gun: Maverick, in which he’s filming an aerial shot for Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1 and Part 2.
The special announcement video begins with Cruise sitting in a helicopter, thanking audiences for coming to theaters and supporting Top Gun: Maverick. It’s a Cruise’s First Movie Made Over $1 Billion worldwide at the box office. Then the camera pans to show Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning director Christopher McQuarrie with the actor, and he tells Cruise they need to shoot a scene for the upcoming action movie.
Cruise forced after a bit of playful banter with the director. He stepped back and started skydiving over South Africa, where he said, “As always, thank you for allowing us to keep you entertained. It’s truly been the honor of a lifetime.”
After wishing everyone a happy holiday, Cruise gestured: “See you at the cinema.” He is then seen freefalling in a spin before the video cuts to an advertisement for Top Gun: Maverick on Paramount+. The film will hit the streaming service this Thursday, December 22.
Cruise has a habit of saying “See you at the cinema” while skydiving. he also did a Dead Reckaming promo video earlier this year for CinemaCon while filming an airplane stunt for the movie.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Cruise firmly ensures Top Gun: Maverick follows the traditional theatrical release model instead of premiering on streaming services like many other movies. The actor said earlier this year: “I make movies for the big screen.” His bet clearly paid off with Top Gun: Maverick.
GameSpot Top Gun: Maverick Review is glowing, saying it’s “a master class on how to make a sequel to a movie that people love.” As the video above introduces, Cruise’s next big picture will be Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One. Ethan Hunt’s newest adventure hits theaters on July 14, 2023.
