Tom Cruise is currently busy with his upcoming film Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1 and a viral video related to the film that surfaced recently has taken the internet by storm! Recently Erik Davis shared on Twitter how Tom went on top of the biplane to introduce his upcoming film Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1 on CinemaCon during April. He wrote, “Fun Fact: The very first public screening of #TopGunMaverick    was at #CinemaCon back in April, and this is how Tom Cruise introduced the film…” The video attached to Erik’s tweet opens up with Tom on an airborne biplane at quite a height, addressing the camera that’s filming him from another plane. Tom Cruise is seen completely harness-free and is just holding onto the camera rig with one hand. The video then shows Director Christopher McQuarrie also flying by in another biplane, to inform Cruise that they must resume production and it’s then that the clip ends. But the ending is the scariest part and fans couldn’t believe their eyes. As the biplane flies away, Top Cruise stands up still holding on with just one hand! That’s crazy yet commendable!
