How Tom Cruise Pulled Off 8 Amazing Stunts | Movies Insider

Tom Cruise is perhaps most famous for doing almost all of his own stunts, which have intensified throughout his career. In the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, he climbed part of a 2,000-foot cliff in “Mission: Impossible 2” and then climbed 1,700 feet up the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, in “Ghost Protocol.” In “Rogue Nation,” Cruise did not one, but two dangerous stunts. First, he hung off the side of a plane that took him up 1,000 feet in the air. He then had to hold his breath underwater for about six minutes, a stunt that required military-style preparation. In “Fallout,” he jumped 25,000 feet out of a plane and filmed a helicopter stunt that required him to get 2,000 hours of training and learn how to do a 360-degree corkscrew dive. Outside the “Mission” franchise, he filmed a scene on a real zero-gravity plane instead of a soundstage in “The Mummy” and learned how to do action in an 85-pound suit in “Edge of Tomorrow.” He is soon set to return to one of his most iconic roles in “Top Gun: Maverick.”
