Check Out Tom Cruise’s HALO Jump From ‘Mission: Impossible - Fallout’

The franchise may be called Mission Impossible, but Tom Cruise proves that just about anything is possible in his latest dare devil stunt that's set to blow the mind of audiences around the world.

The older Cruise gets, the more bold he gets when it comes to pulling off stunts like this.

As this behind-the-scenes featurette explains, Cruise - who's turns 56 next month - hurled himself out on airplane at 25,000 feet to complete a HALO jump.

"I can't wait for the audience to see this", said Cruise of the stunt.

As the featurette reveals, director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise have been pondering this particular stunt for a while now. He's one of the few action stars left pulling off insane stunts like this, and everything we've seen from Mission: Impossible - Fallout makes us believe that all this effort will be worth a hell of a movie to close out summer blockbuster season.


We must say, Tom Cruise never fails to impress us!

"Our stunts keep getting higher in altitude and lower in oxygen..."

Just to highlight further how unsafe HALO jumps are, people typically spend up to 45 minutes breathing in pure air to prevent hypoxia.

Produced by Bad Robot Productions, Skydance Media and Alibaba Pictures, Mission Impossible: Fallout stars Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin. It was also the second Mission Impossible movie to be filmed in the UAE, as parts of the 2011 hit Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol was filmed in the Dubai desert and the Burj Khalifa.
