What better way to get attention in 2023 than by creating some headlines to close out 2022? That seems to be Tom Cruise’s plan.

Whether Top Gun: Maverick wins Oscar gold or even gets considered for any Academy Awards, won’t be known until organizers announce the nominees on Jan. 24.

In the meantime, Cruise and the other makers of Maverick are savoring news that the movie — from Dec. 22 to last Sunday — became the most-watched movie premiere for Paramount+.

Variety posted the news earlier this week, noting that Top Gun: Maverick also boosted viewership of the original movie by 400 percent and the Mission: Impossible franchise by 140 percent on the streaming service.

While Top Gun might drum up a new round of attention thanks to Maverick’s likely Oscar nominations, Tom Cruise is tending to his other franchises.

After all, you don’t want to start collecting dust at 60-years-old.

Tom Cruise and His Mighty Mission: Impossible Stunt

A couple of weeks ago, Paramount Pictures posted a 9-minute, extended, behind-the-scenes clip from Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning, Part One. Called “The Biggest Stunt in Cinema History,” it presents the creation of just that.

If you feel like you missed something, you’re not alone; the second-to-last Tom Cruise movie isn’t even coming out till July 14. Releasing material beyond trailer material is unusual this far out.

But Paramount seemed confident enough about the movie to start rolling out clips starting more than a year in advance. (The studio released this footage four months ago.)

Fair enough … the franchise is already worth $3.5 billion, making it one of the top 20 highest-grossing in movie history.

And does anyone not trust Tom Cruise? Aside from all the Scientology stuff, can we agree on that, at least?
