Tom Cruise brought the world premiere of ‘MI Dead Reckoning’ to Rome

During the pandemic, the production of Mission Impossible 7 basically had to get special permission from the Italian government to shoot exterior scenes all around Rome while everything else was in lockdown. I still remember those photos too – Rome was at a virtual stand-still, with the Italian government enforcing strict lockdown procedures, and there was Tom Cruise, barking orders at everyone in the middle of Rome. Well, Cruise brought the world premiere of MI7 to Rome, and they took over the Spanish Steps and the Auditorium della Conciliazione last night. The photos are beautiful, honestly. But y’all know this cast is tired. They’ve been working on MI: Dead Reckoning Parts One and Two for three f–king years.

I’m including photos of Tom solo and with the cast. Tom and Hayley Atwell reportedly dated for a bit, but I don’t think they’re still together. They made a point of posing together though. Fashion notes: Rebecca Ferguson wore Emporio Armani, a pretty great dress, albeit very simple. Hayley wore a slinky black dress but I dislike her “wet look” hair. Vanessa Kirby looks the best, imo. I love a blonde in a gold dress, and this looks amazing on her.

The reviews are already coming in for this movie and they’re overwhelmingly positive. I guess there’s still a lot of love for this franchise and for Tom as Ethan Hunt. We’ll see.

    The ladies really brought their A game. I love the cut of Rebecca Ferguson’s dress but I’m a little confused by the length and the shoes.

    And I want to know more about that wedding cake dress (tiered) dress on the woman on the end in the group pic. It’s kinda cool but not sure it’s a good thing to immediately think wedding cake.

    Hayley’s white shoes! 😬🫣🙄

    I like the dresses, in theory. Whatever happened to jewel tones?

    Tom looks oily. Now that Miscavige has been swallowed by Xenu’s volcano, it seems he’s $cientology’s #1?

    It saddens and angers me that people not only want to talk to, but actually work with a member of a fascist cult.

    (… and that people like Spielberg say said cult member resurrected cinema. 🤬)

    • Josephine says:

      TC really has to managed to keep his working life a little separate. people seem to love working with him, he’s all business but still pleasant apparently. it’s an industry where everyone seems desperate all the time so i’m not surprised that people overlook his cult, especially if it doesn’t come up while he’s working. the hollywood crowd has overlooked sexual predators continually so the bar can’t get lower

      • Ameerah M says:

        Well I think he has learned his lesson after War of the Worlds where he was trying to convert people to Scientology on set and harassed Spielberg about his daughter going to therapy. Spielberg stated that he would never work with him again after that film.

    Action Hobbit is looking rough. Who on his team let him on a red carpet with his hair looking like that? Or maybe it was being blown by wind?

    • lisa says:

      thank you! all I could think was Frodo. we know he has that free Sea Org labor. cant one be in charge of haircuts and combing?

    • amb says:

      The wind didn’t make it grow like that. He’s such a control freak I can’t imagine he didn’t OK the look. Very strange – is he hiding something under there?

      (“Action hobbit” – nice one!)

    • StellainNH says:

      Thanks! I have to remember not to be drinking while reading comments. I nearly snorted out my coffee!!!

      From this time forward, he will be now known as Action Hobbit.

    • Chic says:

      The wind tunnel look is to distract from the overfilled cheeks.

      • lucy2 says:

        Yeah I figured it was a distraction from a tune up.
        For a long time he was having excellent work done and looked really, really good for his age, but in the past few years it’s catching up to him.

        Hard pass on the movie, Tom and his cult don’t get my box office dollars, but I do like the gold dress.

      • SadieMae says:

        Yeah, for a while his plastic surgery/fillers were remarkably natural-looking, but there comes a time when no matter how good the work, you’re not gonna look 30 anymore – you’re just gonna look weird. Cruise just turned 60. I’m sure it’s difficult to embrace natural aging when you’re known for having boyish good looks, but it’s time for him to move on. He looks like a chipmunk.

    • Ana Maria says:

      thank you! for pointing that out; whoever styled his hair should be fired

      • SadieMae says:

        I’m guessing either he or his stylist, or both, think this tousled look is youthful.

  4. Eleonor says:

    I meh on all of this.
    I don’t like Vanessa Kirby hair with that dress.

  5. Concern Fae says:

    I’ve been doing a rewatch on the series and Tom looks so young in the first films! I’m the same age, and I’m pretty sure I look younger than he does now.

    Whatever they were going for with the electric socket hairdo did not work. Always wonder if the person likes the look when you see something this off the mark. Sometimes you get a Sharon Stone admitting she knew it was a bad dress or hair, but she had to try to make it work.

  6. Kirsten says:

    The Mission Impossible movies are fun and I’m sure these next two are no exception.

    Vanessa Kirby looks fantastic — that dress is great on her, and works for this premiere/location.

  7. HeyKay says:

    Tom looks awful in these photos.
    The windblown hair, the puffy cheeks, the frozen smile.
    Why is he wearing suits with vests so much lately?
    He is all creepy vibes these days.
    IDK, I hate the CoS stuff.
    All I think of is that when I see Cruise now.
    Cruise really goes all out for these MI premieres, old school HW events, posing in Rome, London, etc.

  8. Saschafrom76 says:

    He looks like a fat Dustin Hoffman as he ages lollll

    • SpankyB says:

      I was thinking Karl Malden from the 60’s/70’s era. But Dustin Hoffman works too!

      • BeanieBean says:

        With that nose, I was thinking Karl Malden too. Was his nose always like that? Or did all the work around it just emphasize its potato shape?

      • Cookie Monster says:

        I was thinking Shecky Green.

  9. Grant says:

    I am so excited for these two movies! They have been so consistently great since MI:3, IMO. Vanessa Kirby looks like a million bucks. Tom looks horrible!

  10. Saschafrom76 says:

    I’ll ever see one of these dudes cult leader slave labor projects over my dead body

  11. L4Frimaire says:

    All the women look gorgeous and well dressed. Tom Cruise looks so rumpled. The 3-piece suit is so stodgy and hate the color. The vest has too many buttons makes it look like a hotel uniform. His hair looks messy and his face looks too worked on. Maybe he should wear DiorHomme.

  12. It’sJustBlanche says:

    It’s too much hair for an older man. If he were your neighbor and had that hair, he’d be married to a 22 year old he met at a bar who was looking for a sugar daddy.

  13. Antonym says:

    I was there (vacation), and my only takeaway was that they ruined my photos on the Spanish steps by roping off the center section of the steps for the full day to allow for setup. lol

  14. j.ferber says:

    Tom is looking rough and disheveled.

  15. Hmm-hm says:

    The movie looks like garbage. Only the first one was interesting IMO, with a real plot!
