You remembering hearing ages ago that there was one stunt in the new Mission: Impossible – Fallout movie that Tom Cruise had been training for, for over a year? And you – like everyone else – scratched your head and thought “what kind of training did he do a for a year?!”
Was it some kind of whole new level of fitness he required as we all know he likes to run a lot in his movies? Nope.
Turns out he had to become an almost ace-level helicopter pilot. That’s the preparation he did for over 12 months. He’s already an accomplished fixed-wing pilot, heck he even owns a restored P51 Mustang stored in a special hanger at Santa Monica airport. But for the mind-blowing camera angles involved in this scene…he’d have to be the only one in the cockpit.
Just watch this.
We were expecting something special from Cruise as we’d recently seen some new pics plus a trailer, but this looks…amazing.
Here’s the new trailer…
Mission: Impossible – Fallout opens on July 27th worldwide and joining Cruise is Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Henry Cavill, Michelle Monaghan, Angela Bassett, Alec Baldwin, Ving Rhames and unfortunately, Simon Pegg.
