The feature, which was first shown at CinemaCon via The Hollywood Reporter, showed how Tom Cruise prepared for the Mission: Impossible 7’s most dangerous stunt. Christopher McQuarrie (director of Mission: Impossible 7), said that the stunt is highly risky. To perfect the stunt, Cruise had to train for one year. The stunt requires that the actor performs a motorbike jump from a cliff into an area in Norway. Cruise completed 500 skydiving sessions, and performed 13,000 motorbike leaps.
“Since I was a child, I’ve wanted to do this since childhood.” Cruise says that this is his dream come true. He has shown no signs of slowing down. McQuarrie said, “The only thing scarier for me is what Mission 8 has in store.” According to McQuarrie, the shot was taken on the first day principal photography. Cruise is no stranger in dangerous stunts. Cruise fell across a building to land on his ankle after landing in the sixth film.
Mission: Impossible 7 is currently filming in Europe, Italy, Abu Dhabi, and the U.K. The film will be released on May 27, 2022.
