Why Tom Cruise wants people to watch ‘Barbie’ and ‘Oppenheimer’ over ‘MI7’

Tom Cruise took to his Instagram to encourage people to visit cinemas this summer and catch movies such as 'Barbie' and 'Oppenheimer'. Despite the beautiful weather and the challenging times faced by the film industry, the 'Mission: Impossible' star emphasized the importance of experiencing films on the big screen. He also paid tribute to Harrison Ford on the 40th anniversary of the 'Indiana Jones' franchise, praising Ford for creating an iconic character in cinema history.

Cruise also expressed his excitement for upcoming movies, including Greta Gerwig's live-action 'Barbie' film and Christopher Nolan's biographical thriller 'Oppenheimer'. He described these films as "explosive" and "pink" and shared a picture holding his Cineworld cinema ticket, captioning the post, “This summer is full of amazing movies to see in theaters. These are just a few that we can’t wait to see on the big screen. Congratulations, Harrison Ford, on 40 years of Indiana Jones and creating one of the most iconic characters in cinema history. You have given us countless hours of joy.” He continued, “I love a double feature, and it doesn’t get more explosive (or more pink) than one with Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie.”


‘All the action is real’

Tom Cruise recently praised 'Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One' as an excellent starting point for newcomers to the franchise, particularly younger viewers. Emphasizing the film's realistic and practical action sequences, Cruise highlighted its epic adventure and visually stunning locations.

Describing the film as a defining example of his perspective on cinema, Cruise underscored the brilliance of the ensemble cast and the captivating nature of the story. He told Collider, “They could start with this film to see and understand that this is all real, all the action is real, it’s practical. This movie is an epic adventure. It’s so lush, filled with practical action and amazing locations.” The 60-year-old continued, “[The movie has] submarines, it has the desert, it has Rome, beautiful locations in Abu Dhabi, Norway, a train that we built, action on the train, and a very engrossing story with a really beautiful cast, an amazing, very charismatic cast. I think when you look at this movie, it really defines what I think about cinema and why because you look at this kind of cast, you look at a brilliant ensemble cast, and the kind of story is very engrossing”.
