Tom Cruise posted a lengthy film showing some never-before-seen production footage from his biggest and riskiest stunt to date. In the upcoming seventh installment of the Mission Impossible series, the actor, who is known for completing some life-threatening action sequences in his movies, will be seen diving over a cliff with a motorcycle. The scenario was hinted to in the initial trailer for the movie. In-depth BTS footage of the actor getting ready for the sequence is shown in the new video.

Tom’s voice can be heard saying, “This is by far the most risky thing we have ever attempted,” in the first scene of the film, which shows a ramp at the edge of a precipice. This will be a base jump into a motorbike jump off a cliff. Since I was a young child, I have desired to accomplish this. Prior to the arrival of director Christopher McQuarrie on screen, a montage depicts all of Tom’s preparation for this life-threatening stunt. To make this happen, he explains, “Tom put together this master plan to coordinate all of these experts in each of the specific fields involved.”
The trainers and specialists go on to detail Tom’s year-long base jumping and canopy training as preparation for the stunt. Pictures show the actor base jumping from an airplane while the professionals follow close behind. The scene then shifts to the ground where Tom is honing his motocross riding skills. The cast explains that the actor trained on a motocross course that they built and that as a result, he is adept at leaping over table tops that are 70 to 80 feet high.
Creating the stunt is just one of the hurdles, according to director Christopher. The alternative is to set up a camera to capture it from the appropriate perspective. Tom trained for the act by performing 13,000 motocross jumps and 500 skydives, according to the stunt team. Then, before traveling to Norway to shoot the actual stunt, they created a mock ramp in England so Tom could practice making the motorcycle jump.
