Happy 61st birthday Tom Cruise, and may you continue running well into your 70s and perhaps even 80s. In celebration of his birthday, Paramount Pictures rolled out a 10-minute supercut of all of Tom Cruise’s running scenes in Mission Impossible movies since 1996, up till 2023, in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. That’s 27 years of running, and only in one movie franchise.
The synopsis of the movie reads:
Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team embark on their most dangerous mission yet: To track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands. With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, and dark forces from Ethan’s past closing in, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission – not even the lives of those he cares about most.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One opens in cinemas on 7 July 2023.
