Love him or hate him, it’s tough not to admit that Tom Cruise just flat out knows how to make a blockbuster.
For like 30 years now, Tom Cruise has been throwing himself out of buildings and helicopters and off planes and trains and automobiles strictly for our entertainment. Cruise is a lot of things and action star is definitely still one of them.
The latest example of Cruise’s supreme action movie ability comes with the release of Mission Impossible: Fallout, the SIXTH movie in the Mission Impossible franchise.
While I’ve yet to see it, if Rotten Tomatoes is to be believed, it’s supposedly the best one yet:
But where does a franchise that’s done it all go from here? Well, space.
While promoting the latest M:I installment, the wildly fun Fallout, Cruise revealed that he’s “thought about” traveling to space.
“It’s like how do we do it? It’s the mechanics of getting it there,” he said. “How do you build a sequence there and how long can we have that sequence? Because if I went up and just dropped, how do you put that into the structure of a screenplay of a mission?”
Of course, Tom Cruise — new Florida resident, by the way — has thought about bringing the Mission Impossible franchise to space, considering he’s done about every stunt possible on Earth.
