Box Office Preview: ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’


The last time we saw Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt he was hanging off the side of a cargo plane in 2015’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.”

In “Ghost Protocol,” he suspended himself from the world’s tallest building.

The “Mission: Impossible” films have become a resume of danger for Cruise, and the newest chapter “Fallout” finds him performing multiple live-action stunts, sometimes at the expense of his health.

Cruise broke his ankle jumping from the rooftop of a building during filming, but it could have been much worse. And in another stunt, it almost was. 

Cruise lost his grip while dangling from a helicopter, but was able to break his fall.

As part of that same sequence, Cruise learned how to fly a helicopter so he could perform a corkscrew maneuver in the mountains.

“I was inches away from the sides of cliffs,” he recalls.

So why does the mega-star continue to put himself in harm’s way?

“A different look. A different vibe. And that’s what I want to give an audience,” he says.
