Director McQuarrie’s vision was to deliberately give the film, Mission: Impossible – Fallout a different look without taking out crucial core values of the iconic action franchise.

Every Mission: Impossible film features Cruise performing one unforgettable, death-defying stunt. In Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, it was climbing Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper and In Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, it was hanging from the door of an Airbus A400M Atlas military transport plane as it takes off.

Commenting on the same, McQuarrie said, “Mission: Impossible is all about practical stunts, practical action and real locations with as little green screen as humanly possible. Tom is ready and willing to do just about anything we can conjure up. So you have to find ways to put the camera where you can see that your star is actually performing these stunts, so everything is designed around putting Tom in the center of the action.”

For Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Cruise and McQuarrie intensified the excitement by designing a series of extraordinary stunts certain to leave audiences without breath. Adding further, McQuarrie said, “Tom spent over a year preparing for this movie. There was a lot of speculation about what the stunt would be. I had to clarify that he was preparing for a sequence of stunts. There is more danger in this sequence than I have ever seen; Tom was constantly in peril.”

The first stunt sequence was shot in New Zealand and was known as the ‘long-line’ which involved Cruise climbing up a rope dangling from a helicopter flying at roughly 2,000 feet and then free-falling 40 feet onto the payload at the end of the rope and bouncing off of it.

According to Cruise, the stunt was in the design and planning stages for two years. “It was definitely one of the most extreme things we did on this movie, but you can’t get this stuff on a green screen. It’s very technical: You have to figure out what the helicopter can hold, the payload, where you can put the cameras, what the angles can be. All the rigs have to check out, any little particle that comes off and hits the rotor blades is a real problem. It required great flying from the pilot and rigging from the stunt guys, who all did an incredible job.”

As thrilling as the stunts are, the crew always avoided crossing over into unrealistic superhero territory, says stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood. “We create action that is still real. I think that’s why audiences relate to his character in these movies. Ethan Hunt is a human being. He knows what he’s got to do. He doesn’t always pick the easiest way to do it, but he throws everything at it, so we have to create action and stunts that can wow the audiences while also giving them a laugh and being believable.”  Read more
