The actor of the series Mission Impossible has a position taken with respect to the projection of films, and defends tooth and nail transmission on big screens.
During the presentation of Top Gun: Maverick in the Cannes Film Festival (where the film received a standing ovation and full of applause for 5 minutes), he referred to his goal when working: “I make movies for the big screen. My films will not be released directly on the platforms. Going to the cinema is sharing an experience, whatever our culture or language is,” he said categorically, adding: “I like to go see the movies in the movie theater when they come out. I wear a cap so as not to be recognized”.
The film brings back Maverick who is going to have a brief but emotional crossover with Iceman (played by Val Kilmer), and new actors of great stature are added, such as Ed Harris, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller Y Jon Ham.
