‘Mission: Impossible’ Director Shares New Tom Cruise Aerial Stunt Pic To Honor Star’s 60th Birthday

Tom Cruise’s frequent collaborator and Mission: Impossible director Christopher

McQuarrie wished the star a happy 60th birthday on Sunday by sharing a new

behind-the-scenes photo that appears to be taken from the eighth M:I movie,

While McQuarrie did not add any context about the image, it sees Cruise hanging

off the wing of a mid-roll vintage red biplane — similar to the one we saw in a pre-

recorded message Cruise sent from the South Africa set of the film during CinemaCon in April.

Cruise, who is known for constantly pushing the limits in his self-performed stunts,

is currently flying high with Top Gun: Maverick which has grossed over $1.1B

globally. This past weekend, its sixth, the movie saw another incredible hold, down just 14% domestically and 16% at the international box office.
