The 30-second clip showed Cruise, sitting in the back of a taxi and wearing a mask. It showed him waving to fans, wondering how they recognised him, driving past various tourist attractions like Buckingham Palace, standing in front of poster for the film and then watching the film.
At the end of the film Cruise is asked by another member of the audience how he liked the film. “I loved it,” says Cruise as he walks out of the theatre.
While the video surprised many given the actor rarely posts non-promotion linked photos or videos on social media, others expressed concern over the actor going to a theatre. Some also claimed that he wasn’t wearing the right kind of mask.

Biggest stunt here is you riding in an actual cab. ;) Big fan nonetheless.

I see that and think there is just way too many people in that auditorium and there is no way I would step into a cinema unless we have a vaccine or effective treatment. A movie just isn’t worth itZ

Are you aware that filters on your mask actually expose others around you to to COVID if you have it?
