Twitter happened to unearth a storm of memes after witnessing Tom Cruise’s latest mission- a cinema hall. The actor showed up at an IMAX theatre in London’s Waterloo to watch an advance opening of Christopher Nolan’s new film Tenet. And Cruise’s humble ride to reach cinema was a black cab! The 58-year-old wore a mask as he toured through London streets amidst the ongoing pandemic. It was a sight to behold to see Cruise make his way to attend the socially distanced screening and sit in the audience among other movie-goers.
Tom Cruise shared a recording of his enroute to cinema in a post on his social media accounts and captioned, “Big Movie. Big Screen. Loved It."
Ranveer Singh left a comment on the post, saying, “Bless up, superstar! Back to the movies, love it."
Many people were delighted to see their beloved star enjoying the movie, but why he made a short film of his own to share his thoughts on the film remains a mystery. Users of the micro-blogging platform were having a field day with the video shared by Cruise referencing some of his iconic roles and even reimagining him watching other movies.
Here are some Twitterati reactions:
