Tom Cruise continues to prove that no mission is impossible for him. As a thank you to the fans who made “Top Gun: Maverick” a box office success, the actor took to the skies to deliver a message that was anything but vanilla.
“I didn’t want the year to end without thanking you all for coming out to the theatres and thank you for supporting ‘Top Gun: Maverick,'” the actor said while aboard a small plane in a short clip. Christopher McQuarrie, who served as writer and producer for the film and the director of both installments of “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning,” was also present, telling Cruise that they’ve “got to get this shot.” The actor agreed and proceeded to leap from the plane while continuing his message. “Where was I? Oh yeah! Thank you for supporting ‘Top Gun: Maverick’! As always, thank you for allowing us to entertain you. It truly is the honor of a lifetime,” the actor said as he plunged toward the ground. Before the clip ended, Cruise took a moment to spread some holiday cheer, “You have a very safe and happy holiday. We’ll see you at the movies!”
The video cut to a promo announcing that “Maverick” will be available on Paramount+ starting December 22. But will there be another installment? It hinges on Cruise’s decision, apparently, at least according to his co-star Miles Teller. “That would be great, but that’s all up to TC,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in July. “It’s all up to Tom. I’ve been having some conversations with him about it. We’ll see.”
