On doing a better MI, Top Gun film
Tom Cruise said that after every screening of his film directed by Christopher, he whispers in the director’s ears, “We could do better.” “Not just Mission: Impossible movies, every movie we make, I tell him we can do better. Including Maverick. Oh I think I can (make a better Maverick),” Tom Cruise said in an interview to Fandango.
Tom on moviegoing experience
“My goal as a child was to make movies and travel the world. And not just be a tourist, but to work and live there, and understand their culture. You look at my movies, and I’ve had that, because of everyone who’s enabled me and allowed me to entertain them. It’s a privilege that I’ve never taken for granted. It’s my passion to make movies. It’s my passion to entertain you. And I’ll always fight for big theatres and that kind of experience for everyone,” Tom said at the premiere in Rome.

Hayley joins the ensemble as Grace. “I’ve been a huge fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise, of Christopher McQuarrie, of Tom Cruise. So when I was handcuffed with Tom in a scene, I said, ‘Wow, I’m in a Tom Cruise movie!’ And he responded with, ‘No no, I’m in a Hailey Atwell movie!’ That’s just how Tom is. He’s so generous, always bolsters people to do better,” Hailey said on joining the Mission: Impossible franchise.
