Tom Cruise shared the holiday cheer with fans the Tom Cruise way that can be done: skydiving towards the sea.
On Sunday, Paramount Pictures released a video announcing that Top Gun: Maverick would be coming to Paramount+ this week. Helping the studio get the message across were Top Gun star Cruise in goggles and skydiving gear.
The actor, who is shooting new ‘Mission Impossible’ movies in South Africa, began the clip with a few words of gratitude to all the moviegoers who made his latest film a box office hit.
“I didn’t want the year to end without thanking you all for coming to the theater,” he said, “and thank you for supporting ‘Top Gun: Maverick.'”
Then, after Mission Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie told Cruise, “We have to take this shot,” the actor fell back into the sky and began free-falling.
“Where have I been? Oh yes. Thanks for supporting Top Gun: Maverick!” Cruise continued mid-air. “As always, thank you for allowing us to entertain you. It’s truly yours.” life.”
Top Gun: Maverick was released in May. Since then, the action flick, a sequel to the original 1986 film, has grossed more than $1 billion worldwide, according to Deadline.
Cruise reprized his role as Capt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell and starred alongside Jennifer Connelly, Val Kilmer, Miles Teller and Glen Powell.
He ended the video by falling to the ground while wishing viewers a “very safe and happy holiday”. The ‘Top Gun’ star – who prides himself on performing his own stunts – might have a different definition of ‘safe’.
“See you at the movies,” he said before quickly approaching the ocean.
