Tom Cruise Celebrates 60th Birthday With Death-Defying New Photo From MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - DEAD RECKONING

To celebrate Tom Cruise's 60th birthday, director Chris McQuarrie has shared an insane new photo from Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One, revealing a look at Cruise doing what he does best.

Happy Birthday Tom Cruise!

To celebrate the star's 60th birthday, Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One director Christopher McQuarrie has shared an insane new behind-the-scenes photo from Dead Reckoning Part Two, which is currently filming and due out in theaters Summer 2024.

The photo features Cruise hanging from a red biplane, a breathtaking scene that was teased during CinemaCon earlier this year, and promises to be one of his most death-defying stunts yet. However, knowing Cruise and McQ, this sequence is likely only the tip of the iceberg for what we'll end up seeing in the film.

Meanwhile, Cruise's billion-dollar blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick continues its historic box office run over the Fourth of July and should finish second this weekend behind Minions: The Rise of Gru - a remarkable accomplishment after being in theaters for a little over a month. It's now the twelfth-highest grossing film of all-time domestically and has reached #43 worldwide.

Check out the new photo, in full hi-resolution, below:

In addition to Cruise as the headliner, the highly anticipated McQ-directed action blockbuster will also see the return of Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn, Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, Academy Award-nominee Vanessa Kirby as the White Widow, Frederick Schmidt as Zola, and Henry Czerny as Eugene Kittridge. 

Newcomers to the franchise include the aforementioned Hayley Atwell (Avengers: EndgameCaptain America: The First Avenger) as Grace, Shea Whigham (Perry Mason; Marvel's Agent Carter), Pom Klementieff (Avengers: Endgame; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Esai Morales (TitansLa Bamba), Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2Hobbs & Shaw), Cary Elwes (The Princess BrideSaw), Indira Varma (Game of ThronesCarnival Row), Mark Gatiss (The FatherThe Favourite), Charles Parnell (Top Gun: MaverickTransformers: Age of Extinction), and Greg Tarzan Davis (Top Gun: MaverickGrey's Anatomy). 

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One lights the fuse in theaters on July 14, 2023; with the expected franchise finale, Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part Two, set to arrive the following year on June 28, 2024.
