ROME. “It’s something I’ve dreamed of doing since I was a child, but also the most dangerous.” After jumping out of a helicopter to thank fans for the success achieved by Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise is expected in cinemas around the world in 2023 for the seventh chapter of his “Mission Impossible”.
Next July, in fact, the seventh chapter of the saga will be released, entitled Mission Impossible: “Dead Reckoning – Part 1”. In the film there will be a spectacular scene that has already been called “the greatest stunt in the history of cinema”.
Paramount Pictures has decided to stream a very long behind-the-scenes video of what is already the craziest stunt of “Mission Impossible 7”.
The nearly 10-minute clip begins with an eerie shot from atop a cliff in Hellesylt, Norway. A long ramp curves over the rocky edge, overlooking a deep precipice.
“This is by far the most dangerous thing we’ve ever attempted in my career,” says Cruise. The actor then goes on to detail the exact setup of the stunt and explains that this particular scenario had been in the works for several years. The stunt is complex and involves a motorcycle chase over a cliff, ending in a jump. All of this takes place on some of the most beautiful terrain on the planet.
The clip then concludes with the signature theme of Mission: Impossible.
“It all boils down to one thing,” says Cruise, “the audience.” Written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning – Part 1 also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Vanessa Kirby, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, Cary Elwes, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, Esai Morales, Ving Rhames, Rob Delaney, Greg Tarzan Davis, Charles Parnell, Henry Czerny, Frederick Schmidt, Yennis Cheung and Anton Valensi.
