Tom Cruise Throws Himself Out Of Helicopter From 10,000ft As He Resumes Filming by iamyemiakins(m): 9:25am On Aug 02
For a man who has swung from a 2,700ft building, clung to the outside of a plane taking off and learned to hold his breath underwater for six minutes, a parachute jump doesn’t represent a Mission: Impossible, even at the age of 58.

Tom Cruise, who famously likes to perform his own stunts, last week threw himself out of a helicopter 10,000ft over the Oxfordshire countryside for the latest movie in the franchise.

Two of the other cast members joined him in the skydive after filming on Mission: Impossible 7 resumed following a Covid shutdown.


Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie has promised at least three ‘obscene’ stunts as the franchise continues, admitting that even he’s ‘terrified’ of his own plans.

Cruise has been practising his stunts during lockdown, and has been seen racing around dirt tracks on a motocross bike and piloting a helicopter.

The actor broke his ankle while filming a stunt for the last Mission: Impossible movie in London three years ago, but that hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm for daredevil action.

He later recalled how he sustained the injury when his foot hit a wall during a heart-stopping rooftop chase involving co-star Henry Cavill.

‘I knew instantly my ankle was broken,’ he said. ‘But I really didn’t want to do it again so just got up and carried on with the take.

‘[After the shot] I said “It’s broken, that’s a wrap, take me to hospital”, and everyone got on the phone and made their vacation arrangement.’

Cruise – who is planning to shoot a future movie on board the International Space Station – personally lobbied Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden for permission to allow shooting to restart on Mission: Impossible 7, despite the coronavirus crisis, but with a reduced crew. It is now due for release in November next year.

Last week it was revealed that McQuarrie wanted to blow up a 111-year-old bridge in Poland as part of the shoot, much to the consternation of locals.

Nollywood movies are an embarrassment. 97% of their movies lack originality or a touch of realness. Ordinary window, smartphone or plasma TV othey can't even break in their movies.
Empiree:
You will pay for the damages?. And why must you compare?.
I'm sorry to say, but this is the most silly comment I've seen on Nairaland this month; the month is still new though.
Nuel19:

Sometimes you guys comment without sense. Do you know the budget involved in shooting Hollywood movies?
The cast of "Passion of the Christ" by Mel Gibson gulped more than 500,000,000 dollars
to shoot.
Their govt and banks provides them with financial and technical support unlike here where a producer of a movie sources for funds without any credit backing from a financial institution or even govt assistance.
Guy, think before you yarn!
Stop making excuses for mediocrity. Who told you movie producers don't get loans from banks?
Have you ever watched a Hollywood movie and you begin to ask yourself if this was really a movie or everything happened in real life and it was captured in video, because of the realness the actors demonstrated? In many Nollywood movies...you'll see the actors looking at the director. grin
Recently, I watched a Nollywood movie where an actress threw her phone and made sure it landed on the sofa and not the floor, while fainting. grin

The risks they take to give us reality as entertainment,
If Nollywood actor chooses to take risk for stunts it'll probably be touching hot pot.

iamyemiakins:


Tom Cruise, who famously likes to perform his own stunts

Someone should please explain this to me, I see a lot of 'stunt doubles' in the cast lists and I wonder, does it mean so.e of the stunts are real and have to be performed by actors other that the main act?
