Tom Cruise Pulls Off a Spectacular Free Fall & Thanks Fans All At The Same Time – WATCH

Action superstar, Tom Cruise is sending his thanks and holiday greetings all while performing a free fall skydive action sequence thousands of feet in the air. No big deal!

On Sunday, Cruise shared a video of himself via Twitter from the set of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning in South Africa to express his gratitude to fans for their support and to wish everyone happy holidays while showing off his skydiving skills.

Cruise, who is 60 years old began the video while hanging out of a plane saying, “Hey everyone! Here we are over stunning South Africa, and 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.”

Christopher McQuarrie, Dead Reckoning director, and screenwriter was alongside Cruise as he interrupted the actor and playfully reminded him to keep his speech short. “Listen, we really gotta roll, we gotta get the shot,” McQuarrie, 54, said.

Cruise casually agreed and as he continued to dangle outside of the helicopter, you see Cruise get into position to jump, but before letting go, he asks McQuarrie if he would be joining him in his sky diving adventure.

“Not on your life. Good luck,” McQuarrie replied.

“We’ll see ya down there,” Cruise says before gracefully letting go of the helicopter and falling back into a free fall.

“Where was I?” he asked as he continues to plummet to the ground. “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. We have to get this shot. You have a very safe and happy holiday, we’ll see you at the movies,” Cruise continued and then he dove away furthering his descent.

Cruise is well known for performing his own dramatic stunts.

In September, footage surfaced of Cruise reportedly filming a stunt for Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part 1 on top of a World War II-era biplane as it flew over South Africa’s Blyde River Canyon.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1, is scheduled for release in July 2023.
