Tom Cruise knows a thing or two about running onscreen.
On Wednesday, Cruise, 60, took to Twitter to share a humorous post for Global Running Day . The actor used a GIF of a clip from his upcoming Mission: Impossible sequel showing him as he dashes across the screen in character as Ethan Hunt.
"Running in #MissionImpossible movies since 1996. #GlobalRunningDay," Cruise wrote in his Twitter post. The actor also shared the clip and caption, which points to 1996's original Mission: Impossible , on his Instagram Story .
Cruise also updated his profiles on both social media platforms to read: "Running in movies since 1981," in reference to the year he appeared in his first onscreen roles for the films Endless Love and Taps .
Cruise reprises his role as Hunt in the upcoming seventh Mission: Impossible movie, the franchise's first entry since 2018. In the film, Hunt and his team are tasked with tracking down "a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands," according to an official synopsis for the film. The synopsis additionally promises "a deadly race around the globe" throughout the movie.

"Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission – not even the lives of those he cares about most," the synopsis adds.
Cruise is joined by a large ensemble cast for the latest Mission: Impossible film, including Ving Rhames , Esai Morales, Hayley Atwell , Simon Pegg , Rebecca Ferguson , Vanessa Kirby , Pom Klementieff, Mariela Garriga, Henry Czerny, Shea Whigham, Greg Tarzan Davis, Charles Parnell, Frederick Schmidt, Cary Elwes , Mark Gatiss, Indira Varma and Rob Delaney.
The movie is written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, a longtime collaborator of Cruise's who directed the previous two Mission: Impossible films and wrote Top Gun: Maverick . McQuarrie, 54, is also making the upcoming sequel Dead Reckoning Part Two , expected to release in 2024.
Global Running Day's website describes the initiative as "a worldwide celebration of running that encourages people of all ages and abilities to get moving."
"This day plays an important role, reminding us of the positives that running can offer to our physical and mental health and the power of unification," the non-profit's website reads of the event. Global Running Day itself is June 7, while the organization is holding virtual running events interested participants can join in through Sunday, June 11.
The organization also added notes to its website advising prospective runners to exercise caution in light of significant air pollution in New York City and much of the U.S.'s east coast due to smoke from Eastern Canada's raging wildfires.
Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One is in theaters July 12.

After Tom Cruise Saved A Mission: Impossible Crew Member On A Moving Train, Set Photo Teases The Epic Scene
Tom Cruise is known as an actor who wants to do all his own stunts . But I suppose one should never lose track of the fact that for Cruise to be able to do all those stunts, there have to be numerous crew members willing to put themselves at some degree of risk in order to film Cruise doing his action sequences. For Cruise to go running around on the top of a moving train, somebody has to be there to film him doing it. During a recent shoot, it appears that one of the cameramen filming an action sequence lost their footing on the top of the train. Luckily, Tom Cruise was there to save the day.
Mission: Impossible 7 recently did some filming at the North Yorkshire Moors railway that involved an action scene on top of the train and the Daily Mail has some shots from behind the scenes, which include pictures of a cameraman sliding down the side of the moving train car, and Tom Cruise jumping in to grab him. The camera man is harnessed in, but Cruise is able to keep a bad situation from getting worse. Of course, the cameraman wasn't the only one hanging on to the edge of a moving train, as it turns out Cruise scene required him to do the same. Shortly after, director Christopher McQuarrie shared a photo of Cruise seemingly from that very scene. Check it out below.
A photo posted by on
This isn't the first time we've seen Tom Cruise on top of a train for the new Mission: Impossible movies. Back in October the actor was spied riding the rails in Norway . It's barely possible there are two different train sequences in Mission: Impossible 7 , or one scene in each of the two Mission: Impossible movies that are on the way. It seems instead that part of the sequence was shot in Norway and the rest is being done in the UK.
It also seems that the Mission: Impossible movies aren't quite done filming with trains yet, as director Christopher McQuarrie Instagram image says the cast and crew will be coming back for "one last bit of mischief" before too long. The Mission: Impossible cast and crew have certainly been getting up to their share of mischief since the two movies that are being shot back-to-back went into production. In addition to seeing Tom Cruise fight bad guys on top of trains we've also seen him jump off the sides of mountains on motorcycles. Who knows what else the man has planned for the next two movies?
Unfortunately, we'll all have to wait even longer to see all the cool action as Mission: Impossible 7 , which was originally set to open this summer, before being delayed to November , has again been delayed and now will not open until May of 2022. Mission: Impossible 8 will follow one year later.
