Tom Cruise rants on the set of Mission: Impossible 7
The actor began his rant very mad. Although, over time, he calmed down while he kept going to explain the significance of each and everyone’s cooperation to make sure the safety of everyone involved throughout Mission Impossible 7’s shoot.
His outburst can be justified as he was worried not just for his film but also about the industry in general. Due to the coronavirus outbreak. Hollywood has been forced to stand still. With all production shut down either due to infected cast and crew members or due to precautionary measures since earlier this year.
This has lost studios’ money, prompting layoffs. That also has a trickle-down effect on cinemas struggling to remain in business with no incoming revenue.
Marvel Studios‘ Shang-Chi & Legend of the Ten Rings have completed its production in Australia with a remarkable no positive coronavirus infection. Additional features that led to the success apart from everyone’s cooperation is the country’s effective handling of the pandemic. It’s important to note that Mission: Impossible 7 has been moving around Europe, shooting at locations. Making them more prone to a deadly virus, so it’s somehow recognizable that Cruise was frustratingly mad at his co-workers.
