A man who will stop at nothing in pursuit of the most hair-raising stunt imaginable, Tom Cruise may have scaled Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, but now he seems to driving off cliffs.
Filming has begun for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7, and his latest daring moment involved driving a motorbike down a long ramp and into the great blue below of the Norwegian fjordland sky. Take a look below.
Fresh from taking in an IMAX screening of Tenet in London and then hiring two Norwegian cruise liners to house the film’s crew, Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie have gone to work in earnest.
This stunt took place at Helsetkopen, Møre og Romsdal on Norway’s west coast, home to the annual World Base Race where racers in wingsuits compete to lob themselves into the ether.
With Cruise, it’s that, only, you know, without the wingsuit and at 60mph. What else could you expect from the man?
Due to COVID-19, filming was due to start in Venice in February before production was halted. It finally kicked off, after rehearsals at the movie’s UK production base.
Nothing is known about the plot of Mission: Impossible 7, except that it looks like it will be maintaining the franchise’s proud, bar-raising tradition of high-energy action sequences.
Cruise is back as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, along with most of the Mission: Impossible – Fallout cast, including Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson and Vanessa Kirby.
Expect to see Mission: Impossible 7 to arrive in cinemas on November 19, 2021.
In the meantime, there’s a lot of blockbusters to look forward to now that the latest cinema releases are coming to the UAE. Keep updated right here.
