Go Behind-the Scenes of Mission Impossible- Fallout's HALO Jump Stunt

Cruise broke his ankle filming the upcoming Mission: Impossible Fallout, and it turns out that wasn't almost the craziest stunt he did in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed movie. Our latest looks at the action sequel comes in the form of a featurette showing us how ole Tommy Cruise threw himself out a plane at 25,000 feet, performing what is called a high altitude, low oxygen skydive.

After the release of the two spectacular trailers where Tom Cruise can be seen doing unbelievably risky moves and fighting vans, helicopters and assassins; the actor is back and is performing a highly unsafe stunt known as the halo jump. This was a jump that had to be performed three times too, since they can only shoot roughly three minutes of footage for each jump. I will rue the day when Tom Cruise is too old to pull stunts off like this. You do a jump without it, and there's a better-than-average chance you'll black out in the middle of jump and, well, plummet to your death without the parachute deploying. "No one thought it would require over 100 jumps to get the scene", director Christopher McQuarrie said. Michelle Monaghan, Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Alec Baldwin, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, and Vanessa Kirby co-star in the film, which Paramount will release on July 27.


With that fearless attitude, you understand how he hung from the side of a cargo plane for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, and again risked himself as you will see below for Mission: Impossible Fallout.
