Tom Cruise returned to the cinemas for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic to watch Christopher Nolan’s new film. However, it wasn’t without recognition from fans.
Tom Cruise performed yet another stunt when he returned to the movies for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sharing a clip of his trip to the movies on his Twitter page, the “Mission Impossible” star was in the United Kingdom when he decided to see Christopher Nolan’s new film, “Tenet.”

Despite wearing a thick black mask that covered most of his face, the iconic actor failed to be incognito in his ride as a group of eager female fans noticed him.
They screamed and waved at him, with one of them bringing out her phone to capture the incredible moment. Although he wasn’t able to stop for some signatures, he waved back before asking his cameraperson:
“How does that happen? I’m wearing a mask.”
Cruise eventually made it to the cinemas and posed in front of the poster outside the London theater before heading in to catch the movie.
Inside the theatre, the 58-year-old gushed to the crowd about how great it was to be back, after which he told a fan that he “loved, loved” the film.
[Cruise's] appearance comes after the three-time Golden Globe winner was spotted performing a risky stunt on the set of his upcoming movie.
The spy movie, which starred Robert Pattinson and John David Washington, tells the story of an agent who must fight to stop World War III.
Cruise’s awesome clip has been viewed over 2.5 million times, and his tweet currently has 20,000 retweets and almost 95,000 likes.
It is no surprise that the legendary actor chose to go see a movie in London as he is currently shooting the seventh installment of the “Mission Impossible” franchise in the city.
Despite the ongoing lockdown due to the pandemic, Cruise moved around because of a recent rule exempting some production crews and sports teams from quarantining when they arrived in England.
His appearance comes after the three-time Golden Globe winner was spotted performing a risky stunt on the set of his upcoming movie.
As seen in several shots of the scene, Cruise was riding a speeding motorcycle off a 650-foot ramp, which reportedly cost more than $2.6 million.
While attached to a set of safety wires, Cruise fearlessly flung himself off the moving bike and hung in the air.
“Mission Impossible: 7” was initially slated for release in July 2021. However, due to the ongoing health crisis, the release date was moved to November 2021.
