Every celebrity adores his or her followers, but Tom Cruise’s appreciation for his fans is genuinely unparalleled.
The “Top Gun: Maverick” star took a break from filming the next episodes in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise to thank moviegoers for their support of “Maverick,” which was released in May, in a video provided by Paramount Pictures on Sunday.
Instead of leaving a lavish studio set to record his message, the 60-year-old actor was seated inside a helicopter, prepping for an aerial shot with director Christopher McQuarrie.
“Good day, everyone. “We’re flying over South Africa filming ‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning’ parts one and two,” Cruise explained. “I didn’t want the year to close without thanking you all for coming out to see ‘Top Gun: Maverick,’ and for your support.”
After being interrupted by McQuarrie, who said, “We’ve got to capture this image,” Cruise leaped out of the chopper elegantly.
“What was I doing?” Cruise stated this with his arms in the air. “Thank you for supporting ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and (as) always, thank you for enabling us to amuse you. It definitely is a once-in-a-lifetime honour.”
“I’m running out of altitude, so I’ve got to get back to work,” he added. We have to get this photo. Have a wonderful and safe holiday. “See you at the movies.”
According to IMDB, “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part One” and “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part Two” will be released on July 14, 2023 and June 28, 2024, respectively. Aside from Cruise, the movie will include Vanessa Kirby, Cary Elwes, and Hayley Atwell.
Cruise’s soaring love letter capped off a dizzying year for “Top Gun: Maverick,” which grossed $1.5 billion worldwide. The National Board of Review awarded the picture the finest of the year earlier this month.
Though the National Board of Review, a long-running group composed of cinema aficionados and academics, has no overlap or link to other award organisations, the triumph adds to “Maverick’s” awards-season tailwinds as not only a billion-dollar global phenomenon but a serious Academy Awards candidate. Cruise will also receive the Producers Guild Awards’ David O. Selznick Achievement Award, which was revealed yesterday.
The film reviewer for USA TODAY, Brian Truitt, lauded “Maverick” as one of the finest films of 2022, praising Cruise for pulling off the “astounding magic trick (of) honchoing a long-awaited return” to the 1986 action blockbuster “Top Gun,” in which Cruise also appeared.
“‘Maverick’ succeeds by openly claiming everything ‘Top Gun’ is and ever was,” Truitt wrote.
