Mission Impossible Series: This action scene has been shot for Tom Cruise's upcoming film Mission Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One. The film is set to release in theaters worldwide on July 14, 2023.
Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1: Tom Cruise is leaving no stone unturned for the next installment of Mission Impossible. The seventh part is ready for release next year. Meanwhile, the Hollywood star shared a glimpse of one of the breathtaking action scenes. On Monday, Paramount Pictures uploaded a video that shows Tom and his team preparing for the dangerous stunt for months.
In this intense action scene, Tom Cruise has to jump off a cliff while riding a motorcycle during a chase sequence. ‘It’s the most dangerous thing we’ve ever attempted,’ he says. Everything they’re putting out is for the audience, he says.
In the next few minutes, it can be seen how Tom prepares for the scene; he also smiles at the camera and says, ‘be confident.’ The BASE-jumping coach also talks about how the Hollywood star can learn rope tricks in a click. He also says that the actor is a very ‘aware’ person.
The team further talks about how they rehearsed every little aspect of the stunt and also did 30 jumps in a day. He calculated this to take 500 skydivers and over 13,000 motocross jumps. He used technology to build a platform to jump off as planned and was well captured by the cameras.
The coaches warn that if the stunt goes wrong, it can lead to severe injury or even death. At the end of the video, as soon as Tom Cruise successfully performs a death-defying stunt, the team claps for him. He also thanks the team for their excellent work, though he doesn’t look convinced; he also says that he feels that he held the bike for longer than necessary.
One of the crew members says that this is the biggest stunt in cinema history, and Tom flew the motorcycle six times in one day.
Mission Impossible Dead, Reckoning Part One, is set to release in cinemas worldwide on July 14, 2023.
