Tom Cruise Surprise Releases Late Contender for Film of the Year

  • Tom Cruise and Christopher Mc Quarrie – Top Gun Maverick set

The duo went on to explain that most modern HD TVs come pre-programmed with this effect, so in order to watch movies and shows "as the filmmakers intended", you have to turn off the motion smoothing setting.

High definition televisions tend to make moving objects appear blurry. The digital effect on most HDTVs, which relies on the addition of frames to a moving image, is meant to reduce motion blur in live sporting events or other high definition programming.

They continued to share the fact that Hollywood is working with TV manufacturers to make motion smoothing easier to turn off.

At the time of writing, Cruise's PSA already has nearly 2 million views, so we're guessing Motion Smoothing is getting deselected in droves across the world.

In a passionate video posted to Twitter, the "Mission Impossible" actor appeared alongside screenwriter, director and producer Christopher McQuarrie to explain the feature. Unfortunately, this setting has some undesirable side-effects, like making "most movies look like they were shot on high-speed video rather than film", otherwise known as "the Soap Opera effect", said Cruise. Hence the nickname for this infamous technology: the soap opera effect.

After five months, the uterus showed no sign of rejection, ultrasound scans were normal, and the woman was menstruating regularly. Researchers in Turkey performed a uterine transplant in 2011 from a deceased donor but have not had any successful pregnancies.


McQuarrie chimed in, expressing his concern about motion smoothing: "If you own a modern high definition television, there's a good chance you're not watching movies the way the film maker intended, and the ability to do so is not simple for you to access".

Only, this doesn't actually make most movies and TV look better. Different TV makers call it by different names, including Sony's MotionFlow, Samsung's Auto Motion Plus and LG's TruMotion.

Tom Cruise has stepped up the fight against motion smoothing.

We'll be honest, this isn't what we expected of the first video from the long-awaited Top Gun sequel. Cruise is also gearing up to star in the film Luna Park.
