Hollywood star Tom Cruise wants to continue producing films for the cinema and not for streaming services like Netflix. "I make films for the big screen," said the US actor at the Cannes Film Festival in southern France on Wednesday. "My films are not released directly on the platforms. Going to the cinema means having a shared experience, regardless of our culture or language."
Cruise said he always watches movies as soon as they come out in theaters. In order not to be recognized, "I put on a hat," joked the Hollywood star. At the age of four he dreamed of making films. "I grew up watching the films of Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and Charlie Chaplin," said Cruise, 59, ahead of the Cannes premiere of his new film Top Gun: Maverick. "Making films has been a great journey for me."
