Tom Cruise Forces James Corden to Skydive
Watch Tom Cruise Literally Jump Out of a Plane for ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Stunt
When Tom Cruise talks about doing his own stunts for theMission: Impossibleseries—and likely for the upcomingTop Gunsequel—he puts his money where his mouth is.
After performing death-defying stunts like scaling the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai inMission: Impossible – Ghost Protocoland strapping himself to a plane taking off inMission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Cruise, director Christopher McQuarrie, and the production team upped the ante even more. InM:I6, Cruise literally jumped out of a plane for a HALO (High Altitude Low Open) skydive stunt.
There’s no special effects or CGI tricks on this one. In fact, according to stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood, Cruise became the first actor to do their own HALO jump on camera for a stunt.
As this behind-the scenes featurette below shows, Cruise himself performed the stunt from 25,000-feet in the air, zooming towards the ground at over 200 mph. The production team created a custom helmet for Cruise to help complete the stunt, and the actor performed the jump over 100 times to get the scene just right.
Take a look at Cruise doing his thing:

Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, and Sean Harris are all back for another installment, while Henry Cavill (and his mustache), Wes Bentley, Vanessa Kirby, and Angela Bassett are joining the series for the first time.
Here’s another look at Cruise doing the stunt, courtesy of his Instagram:
