Wearing a suave dark suit, baby-blue tie and trademark shades, the movie superstar joked he wanted to base jump off the Eiffel Tower.
Critics have been raving about the latest edition to the high-octane franchise that famously sees Cruise doing his own daredevil stunts.
In the new movie he flies a helicopter, drives – and crashes – a motorbike at 120mph down Paris's Avenue de l'Opera and leaps between buildings.
Cruise, 56, eyed the world famous landmark and told reporters: "I’d do a base jump off there.”
His glam co-star Vanessa Kirby, 30, wore a cream strapless dress that flowed to the floor, with black trim detailing.
The Crown star had extra reason to be cheerful on the red carpet after learning that she had just been nominated for an Emmy.
Returning as spy Ethan Hunt, Cruise broke his ankle performing stunts.
But amazingly, he acted on, refusing to take a break – and that's the shot that made it into the film.
Asked what he thinks when he's preparing to pull off the amazing stunts, he replied: “Oh s***.”
He appeared on the red carpet with glamorous co-stars Alix Benezech, Angela Bassett, Michelle Monaghan, Rebecca Ferguson and Vanessa.
Simon Pegg, Henry Cavill, aka Superman, and director Christopher McQuarrie were also at the event.
Crown star Vanessa has rubbished rumours she is dating Tom after the pair were snapped getting close on set.
