Before going to Hollywood, Tom Cruise flew into London to meet the producers of Mission: Impossible - Fallout. Cruise, obviously, did not want to meet with them in a mall on some rainy afternoon. Cruise is a human being that likes meeting people in malls and making friends. After meeting with the film's producers, he left to begin filming Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
No matter how many movies Cruise has been in, Mission: Impossible - Fallout is still his favorite. In fact, he even considers it the best. Cruise made his comments while attending the MTV Movie Awards 2020 held in Los Angeles. Cruise was nominated for his role in Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
Cruise was invited to attend the event by Mission: Impossible's producers which saw him honored with the Best Film Actor award. While there, he was given a lot of "resume" from producers, directors and actors. Among them was the statement from Tom Cruise that Mission: Impossible - Fallout is one of his favorite films.
As soon as he was asked about his comments about Mission: Impossible - Fallout, the star seemed to be on the defensive. "You're saying it is my favorite film?" he asked. "I have to be honest with you, I love all of them, but Mission: Impossible - Fallout is my favorite one."
The producers, however, tried to divert the conversation. They said, "Tom, we appreciate the praise, but we wanted to make sure you really love Mission: Impossible - Fallout!" They also pointed out that it was not like they needed to answer the question. Cruise got the message.
According to sources, producers asked Cruise if he could remember any other movie in which he had played the same character again. Cruise remembers Mission: Impossible III, The Towering Inferno and even the John Woo's The Last Samurai.
Although the Mission: Impossible - Fallout interview was brief, it gave us some interesting details about the Star and Mission: Impossible series. The producers also wanted to let us know that the production of the fifth installment was already in full swing.
According to Cruise, he does not understand why everyone loves Mission: Impossible. The actor mentioned his long list of favorites including Avatar, The Lion King, The Incredibles, X-Men, The Social Network, Titanic and many more. He said he wants to continue working with producers such as Brad Grey and Bruce Straley.
