Even Tom Cruise is in on Oppenheimer vs Barbie this summer

He might have his hands full with Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning, but with this tweet, Tom Cruise revealed he's as big a movie buff as the rest of us.

As everyone gears up for the Barbie/Oppenheimer double bill, it shouldn’t be surprising that Hollywood actors like Tom Cruise are getting in on the fun too. The Mission Impossible 7 release date might be mere days away, but Tom Cruise made it clear on Twitter that he won’t be missing out on the cinematic event of the summer.

“This summer is full of amazing movies to see in theaters,” the action movie actor explained in a tweet. “I love a double feature, and it doesn’t get more explosive (or more pink) than one with Oppenheimer and Barbie.” In the post celebrating all the new movies coming out at the moment, Cruise also took a moment to shout out Indiana Jones 5.

“Congratulations, Harrison Ford, on 40 years of Indy and one of the most iconic characters in history,” he added.
