It looks like Tom Cruise completed yet another top mission this past weekend: spending quality time with his son.

As reported by Entertainment Tonight, the 61-year-old actor was spotted on Saturday with Connor Cruise (28), whom he shares with his ex-wife, Nicole Kidman. The duo made a rare public appearance together while attending a Mission: Impossible—Dead Reckoning event at AMC Empire 25 in New York. And Tom's older sister, Lee Ann Mapother (63), joined them for the occasion.

In photos published by Entertainment Tonight, Cruise is seen wearing a black shirt and dark jeans with sunglasses while Connor dons a gray polo shirt with blue jeans and white sneakers. 

The rare sighting comes about a month after Connor shared a photo of himself at Florida's Belleair Country Club on Instagram—his first post since August 2022.

In the snap, he poses next to his pal in a striped blue polo shirt and shades, and he captioned the post with golfing emojis. One fan commented, "Welcome back, always a pleasure to see you posting what makes you feel good."

Conor has kept his distance from the spotlight in recent years, but we do know that he has a passion for deep sea fishing (take a look at his IG feed) and that he's a Scientologist like his dad.

While discussing her relationship with Connor and Isabella Cruise (25)—both of whom were adopted—Nicole Kidman told Who magazine, "They have made choices to be Scientologists, and, as a mother, it's my job to love them. And I am an example of that tolerance and that's what I believe—that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I'm open here."

We're just glad to see these father-son outings are Mission: Possible.
