Simon Pegg and director Christopher McQuarrie also attend the event at the Austrian capital’s State Opera, which is also featured in the film.
Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson and director Christopher McQuarrie were greeted with loud applause and cheers at the Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation world premiere in Vienna, Austria Thursday evening.
In typical fashion, Cruise showed up outside the opera early to sign autographs and take pictures with fans for more than a couple of hours. He followed Pegg, who did the same.
»This city is so beautiful,» Cruise told the crowd from a small stage outside the premiere, to much applause. «Thank you so much for being here.»
Asked on the red carpet about the status of Top Gun 2, he said: «I don’t know. I haven’t had a chance to really think about it. I’m making a Doug Liman film right now, Mena. And I’m going to fly to Colombia when we finish the press on this to finish that. We are shooting another [Jack] Reacher in the fall, and I’ll probably start the next Mission next summer. We’ll see.»
Also on the red carpet, Pegg told reporters about shooting in Vienna: «It was a real pleasure to actually come here for real. This city has a great history, not the least with spies film.»
It is the first world premiere of a Hollywood film in Vienna, where parts of the latest installment of the action franchise were shot last summer.
