Tom Cruise is known for being a fearless stunt performer. However, it was one of the most dangerous acts he performed. It is also claimed that the stunt performed in Norway has created history in the Cinema. Around 500 skydives and 13,000 jumps were done by Cruise to achieve the feat.
It took years to shoot a motorcycle clip, jumping off a cliff into a base jump. “Wanted to do it since I was a little child,” said an American actor.
“There’s a lot going into this stunt. So Tom put together this master plan to coordinate all these experts in each of the particular disciplines involved to make this whole thing happen” Christopher Mcquarrie, a writer/director.
“John and I are jumping out of a helicopter. He’s going to chase me. That’s what we say to each other. Don’t be careful. Be competent.” Tom added.
“A year of Base training, advanced skydiving training, a lot of canopy skills, a lot of tracking.” Wade Eastwood, A second unit director/stunt coordinator.
Miles daisher (base jumping coach) praised tom cruise for being an amazing individual and said, “you tell him something and he just locks it in.”
“His sense of special awareness, he’s the most aware person I’ve ever met.” he further added.
This amazing and insane stunt involved so many things such as over 500 skydives and over 13000 motocross jumps, etc.
Different models of different ramps were built to calculate Tom’s trajectory repetitions. The intention of coming up with such ideas is to consistently predict where Tom was going to be in three-dimensional space. GPS chip on Cruise recorded every single one of his jumps along with ground speed.
“The only things you really have to avoid while doing a stunt like this is serious injury or death,” joked stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood.
“This is far and away the most dangerous stunt we have ever attempted,” McQuarrie said. “The only thing that scares me more is what we have planned for Mission 8.”
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is set to be released in theaters on July 13, 2023.
