Tom Cruise takes James Corden on a fighter jet (and scares the hell out of him)

Host James Corden just took his “carpool karaoke” concept a step further. This time, Tom Cruise was his guest. He took the opportunity to promote the release of his movie Top Gun: Maverick on board a fighter plane.

For the occasion, the presenter of the Late Late Show made a loop in a two-seater jet with the actor who acted as a singing pilot. The concept of “cockpit karaoke” was born!

James Corden‘s adventurewith Tom Cruise begins shortly before 5am. The actor arrives in a private jet. He picks up the Englishman and the two men head to an airport where they would have a “Top Gun Day”.

The duo would start their day aboard a 75 year old Mustang plane. James Corden does not seem particularly confident when the actor shows him his parachute …

After a first flight with a chase in the air (!), the host and the actor make a second “Top Gun” type flight. This time, the couple flies in a supersonic jet flying over a desert at hundreds of kilometers per hour.

JamesCorden will end his tenure at Late Late Show in April of next year.
