Actor Tom Cruise surprised moviegoers in London by attending a preview show of Christopher Nolan's espionage drama Tenet, one of the first films to release after the theatres reopened post shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 58-year-actor shared a video of his trip to the movie theatre on social media and wrote, "Big Movie. Big Screen. Loved it." In the video, Tom Cruise, dressed in an all-black outfit complete with a facemask, travelled to the theatre in a SUV. When people on the sidewalk waved to him, he waved back and said, "How does that happen? I'm wearing a mask." When he arrived at the theatre, Tom Cruise said, "Here we are, back to the movies." Tom Cruise is then shown seated in a packed theatre applauding as the movie began. As he exited the theatre after watching the film, a moviegoer asked him, "Did you enjoy it?" He replied, "Loved it."
Tom Cruise was reportedly filming Mission: Impossible 7 in London while he will be next seen in Top Gun: Maverick scheduled for Christmas 2020 release.

Tenet features actor John David Washington in the lead role with the supporting cast including Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh and Bollywood actress Dimple Kapadia. Parts of Tenet were filmed in India. In September last year, pictures of Dimple Kapadia filming Tenet with Christopher Nolan and John David Washington in Mumbai went viral.
Tenet was scheduled for July 2020 release but it was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Today, it opened in a few theatres in 70 countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea and Russia, and it will release in select cities in the US in September.
