To promote Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise shared a video from the set of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning. He falls out of a plane over South Africa in the video provided to Paramount Pictures’ YouTube channel.
“Hey everyone,” Cruise began. “Here we are over stunning South Africa, where we’re filming ‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning’ parts one and two. And I didn’t want the year to end without thanking you all for coming out to the theaters and thank you for supporting ‘Top Gun: Maverick.’”
“Where was I?” he asked while free-falling. “Oh yeah. Thank you for supporting ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and thank you for allowing us to entertain you. It truly is the honor of a lifetime.”
“I’m running out of altitude, so I have to get back to work,” he said lastly. “We have to get this shot. You have a very safe and happy holiday, we’ll see you at the movies.”
Top Gun: Maverick will begin streaming on Paramount+ on Thursday, December 22. The film released in theaters back in May, over thirty years after the release of the original movie. It earned $1.488 billion worldwide at the box office, the most of Cruise’s entire career.
