On Thursday night La Croisette had its eyes in the sky in several ways after the landing of Tom Cruise by helicopter and the passage of the Patrouille de France over the Palais des Festivals.

A solar wind blew on the Cannes Festival during the arrival and the climbing of the steps of Thomas Pesquet, the European astronaut, who directed the international space station for several months. Thomas Pesquet, real life superhero, was the guest of honour of SHIBUYA PRODUCTIONS to attend the preview of the star film of the fortnight TOP GUN MAVERICK with Tom Cruise.

He will make the most of his stay in Cannes to present his mission to high school students.
