Tom Cruise reveals ‘the most dangerous stunt’ he’s ever done

He showed us how he made the mission possible.

Tom Cruise has revealed his “most dangerous stunt” of all time in a behind-the-scenes feature for his upcoming movie, “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One.” in a clip posted Wednesday on Twitter.

Days after posting a video jumping out of a plane, the ‘Top Gun’ actor shared a 9.5-minute clip showing him riding a motorcycle off a cliff.

“This is by far the most dangerous thing we’ve ever attempted,” the 60-year-old actor said. “We’re going to shoot it in Norway and it’s going to be a motorcycle jump off a cliff into a base jump.”

According to Cruise, he wanted to engage in risky business from a young age.

Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote and directed the film, said Cruise, who insists on doing all of his stunt work, has everything from the plan to the stunt team in place.

Stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood revealed that Cruise had “a year of basic training, advanced skydiving training, a lot of canopy skills, a lot of tracking.”

Base jumping coach Miles Daisher described Cruise as an “incredible individual”.

“You tell him something, and he locks it down,” Daisher added. “His sense of spatial awareness, he’s the most aware person I’ve ever met.”

“I have to get so good at it that there’s no way I’m missing my marks,” Cruise joked.

“Understanding the stunt is just one of the technical challenges,” McQuarrie said. “The other puts a camera up so you can see where Tom is doing it.”

“Finding the right lens, the right platform, the right medium. Even two years ago, the cameras that would allow us to do what we’re trying to do today didn’t exist,” McQuarrie added.

Cruise explained that the key to getting the shot is consistency as well as the right speed.

McQuarrie said the only thing that scared him more than that stunt was what Cruise might be planning for “Mission 8.”

“We need to be able to consistently predict where Tom will be in three-dimensional space,” McQuarrie noted.

According to the video, Cruise performed the stunt six times a day.

“This is by far the most dangerous stunt we’ve ever attempted,” McQuarrie said. “The only thing that scares me more is what we have planned for ‘Mission 8’.”

Cruise recently wished his fans happy holidays and thanked them for their support – then jumped out of a helicopter.

“Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” is set to hit theaters on July 13, 2023.
