Tom Cruise casually sends scary message to fans while hanging off the top of an aeroplane

As you do...

A clip of Tom Cruise speaking to fans from the top of a flying plane has emerged social media, and it's safe to say that the Top Gun still carries out his own stunts.

The daring footage was exclusively aired at this year's CinemaCon back in April to promote Top Gun: Maverick and Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning: Part I.

However, it has since made its way to Twitter and fans are going absolutely wild over the clip, which was taken while filming for his next turn as Ethan Hunt.

Cruise can be seen casually crouching on top of the airborne red biplane as he leans on the top wing with a beaming smile on his face. Check it out:

"Hi everyone," he says, "I wish I could be there with you. I'm sorry for all the extra noise."

The 60-year-old actor continues: "As you can see we're filming the latest instalment of Mission Impossible."

He explains that they're currently flying over a canyon in South Africa, only to then be interrupted by franchise director Christopher McQuarrie, who approaches Cruise in a yellow biplane.

"I hate to interrupt but we've really got to roll, we're losing light and low on fuel," says McQuarrie, to which Cruise replies, "Oh yeah, we've got to roll."

Just Tom Cruise on top of a plane.

But before they crack on with shooting the film, the daredevil pair explain to the crowd at CinemaCon that they'll be sharing with them the first trailer for the seventh Mission Impossible film as well as an early screening of Top Gun: Maverick in its entirety.

And that, folks, is how you get people hyped.

Since making its way to social media, thousands of people have liked, shared and commented on the footage, which serves as a solid reminder that Cruise still performs his stunts, even as he enters the winter years of his life.

"MI7 is going to be a banger," wrote one fan, while another said, "Doing the impossible (pun obvs intended) and topping Fallout."

A third added: "Say what you want about Tom Cruise but the dude is committed and damn right fearless!"

The actor still performs his own stunts.

"Half the budget is just insurance," quipped another, with a fifth joking, "If I worked for his insurance company I would quit after seeing this."

If you want to see how the stunts turned out, Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning: Part I drops in cinemas on 14 July, 2023.
