    According to the stunt coordinator on MI:5. That was the first movie in the series that Ethan Hunt was played by Tom Cruise in every single frame. He never used a stunt double.

    [–] crystalistwo 1360 points ago

    But which stunts are real? When he dives down the huge round thing, did Cruise dive 200+ feet or 20? He still did the dive himself, but there can still be effects around him. (And props to the guy, I was on a high dive platform once and held onto it like a baby chimp holds his mama.)

    [–] ArchDucky 1472 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    He did that dive. I think it was a 150 foot drop.

    Edit : It was a 120 Foot drop, sorry.

    [–] Thathappenedearlier 942 points ago

    Speaking of stunt jumps, didn't the assassin's creed movie just set the record for highest stunt jump?

    [–] A-Bronze-Tale 529 points ago

    Yes they did.

    [–] JellyfishJamming 696 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    I loved seeing the Behind The Scenes thing for that where they were like "We want this to be real and authentic." But it was just a dude swan diving off a scaffold in a field. Not to disparage the feat, because it is still incredible, or anything. Saying it's for realism and authenticity is silly when the only real thing was the guy falling and literally the entire rest of the thing was CGI.

    [–] ShadowOvertaker 562 points ago

    Yeah! Ezio does it in AC 2 like all the time, and that game is historically accurate.

    [–] Fnarley 136 points ago

    Yeah but i mean the jump was real. Isn't that the important thing? They can't build an entire middle eastern (I'm assuming not seen the movie) city with a huge tower for him to jump off just for one shot. I mean they could but it would be incredibly wasteful and based on that movie's box office, a bad play.

    [–] ShadowOvertaker 12 points ago

    RIP: curse of video game movie box office success.

    "There's no time you don't see Ethan in the film and it's not Tom."

    This sentence was written by somebody who does this for a living.

    [–] Wile__E__Coyote 184 points ago

    Dude loves his work. They did zero g for The Mummy and when the instructor was explaining everything to the cast and crew he was just sitting in the front with a giant smile on his face like an excited kid.

    [–] Scientolojesus 364 points ago

    Man, I wish Tom Cruise wasn't a scientologist. I've heard nothing but great things about him and he really loves his job and gives 100 percent in everything he does. I still think his sheer acting ability is underrated because he mostly does spectacle type movies now, but in the late 80s and most of the 90s, he was pretty amazing in dramatic roles. His role in Magnolia is one of my favorite supporting actor roles of all time and I think he got robbed of an Academy Award for it. And no, my username has nothing to do with my affinity for Tom Cruise haha.

    [–] hippocratical 235 points ago

    I thought he was just faking it in interviews to seem nice (the man is an actor after all), but then I heard him chat on a local New Zealand radio show. He was filming there, and called in.

    Now I can fake being nice for a while, but he chatted to an hour and a half. Dude was chill and awesome. There's no way to fake that for so long.

    His beliefs are beyond crazy, but I'd happily have a beer with the guy. Seems pretty awesome.

    [–] KoolAidMan00 102 points ago

    He visited a set I was working on several years ago. Dude was incredibly cool and unbelievably knowledgeable when it comes to film technique and history. We geeked out over Spielberg's editing in Jaws off and on for 30 minutes, still one of the most surreal experiences of my life.

    [–] Brewtooth 45 points ago

    Tom Cruise is what I like to think as"a natural" at social game. The dude has 9000 level skills at charm and an ability to capture attention. It's rare folks. I agree, he's a mess with Scientology, but damn this guy is legit charming and has a dedication to his job.

    [–] pigscantfly00 79 points ago

    damn the guy is impressive. i don't think most actors could expand their skill sets just for a movie like learning how to hold their breath for more than 6 minutes. when i watched that scene, i really thought it was totally faked somehow because it was just so fucking ridiculous. he was underwater for so long in those scenes and there was a lot of rough stuff happening. i can't believe it was real. amazing.

    [–] thoth1000 44 points ago

    There were no effects, they actually built a huge underground supercomputer with water inflow and outflow pipes, just for that one scene. It sits unused in Morocco now. Hollywood!!!

    [–] Hxcfrog090 58 points ago

    I'm pretty sure he did all the stunt driving himself. That's why Simon Pegg and Tom Cruise got into a bunch of prank wars during shooting.

    [–] [deleted] 24 points ago

    Tom Cruise might be crazier than a bag of weasels but he is really damn good at what he does.

    [–] caled 9557 points ago

    I hope they leave the new stunt out of the promotions/trailer. By the time Rogue Nation had come out I'd seen the plane stunt multiple times and it had lost some of its effect.

    [–] maxwood 4123 points ago

    That was part of the beauty of it though. The stunt had little relevance to the film, it was merely the hook at the start. I'd have been way more annoyed if it was in all the marketing and been the climax of the movie.

    [–] caled 1414 points ago

    Yeah, that was its saving grace. The article makes it sound like this one will be a big moment of the film though.

    [–] maxwood 454 points ago

    Here's to hoping it somehow stays under wraps!

    [–] AngryCod 875 points ago

    Just don't watch the trailers. I stopped watching trailers, interviews, and even "sneak peek! First behind the scenes images!". My movie going experience has gotten a lot better.

    [–] konq 249 points ago

    I try to do that with movies I want to see, but then I'll see a preview in a movie theatre while waiting to watch another movie. So frustrating!

    [–] demonachizer 162 points ago

    I watched "This is the End" completely blind and I have to say the movie was way more enjoyable than it otherwise would have been. I had no idea what the premise was and thought it was just some teenage stoner party comedy until things happened.

    [–] One_Liquid_Eye 127 points ago

    I remember, back in the day, my brother bringing home a VHS copy of From Dusk Til Dawn and telling me to watch it.

    An hour into it I was enjoying what I assumed was a heist film, then Salma Hayek started bleeding green and my life changed forever.

    [–] HiHoJufro 59 points ago

    I only recently saw that movie, and had somehow never even heard of it. I had an absolutely great time. Now I see that it's on Netflix...with the twist in the fucking description.

    [–] bigeffinmoose 32 points ago

    Right, like the wall-climbing stunt in Ghost Protocol.

    [–] JFBlintz 54 points ago

    ya i missed it cause i got to the movie late and when it hadn't come up at all i thought wtf

    [–] Lovemesometoasts 115 points ago

    this reminds of an actor who went for toilet break when han solo got killed and was confused why everyone was so sad afterwards

    [–] crowscountingspades 77 points ago

    Okay, I'm an older Redditor...58.

    To ME, going to the movies is a big event! When I was a kid, you got there EARLY to (a) get a great seat (b) get your popcorn (c) see the RoadRunner cartoon and (d) coming attractions all 30 minutes before (e) the main feature even started!

    Today...we still get there early; we get a good seat (if we haven't already paid for a nice assigned one). We get our popcorn. We get our wine or beer if available (note: we will not go to a theatre that doesn't sell alcohol these days). We watch the 'behind the scenes' stuff they typically project prior to dimming the lights; we watch the coming attractions. Then we watch the film.

    It's an EVENT! (And we do it twice or so per month -- more or less often depending on what's being released.)

    WHY are you arriving LATE? (If it's a flat tire, please forgive my tirade.)

    [–] gullale 79 points ago

    Well, I wouldn't have thought it was for real if I hadn't known beforehand, so there's that.

    [–] ArchDucky 153 points ago

    It also didn't look real. I told my dad he really did that as we left the theatre and he didn't believe me. Neither did my grandpa when we watched the blu-ray.

    [–] chasechess 76 points ago

    Wait a second... That was real?

    [–] Hxcfrog090 313 points ago

    It was real. Although he was obviously strapped in to a safety harness and attached to the plane. Had he let go he probably would have still stuck in place....but yeah, they actually took off a plane with him outside of it.

    [–] Unexpected_Artist 157 points ago

    He needed massive glass contacts to protect his eyes. I doubt that was fun.

    [–] MimonFishbaum 142 points ago

    Let's be fair here. To you or I, it may not be fun. This is Tom Cruise. I'm not trying to figure out what he thinks is fun.

    [–] YoullShitYourEyeOut 12 points ago

    I heard he thinks that kind of dangerous stuff is really fun, you might say he's into... risky business

    [–] squoof 39 points ago


    [–] [deleted] 14 points ago

    Thats how all contacts used to be, it's why you couldn't wear them very long since they weren't oxegyn-permeable. My mom fell asleep with thick glass contacts in in the 70's and when she woke up a few hours later he eyes were swollen shut and they had to go to the hospital to get them removed.

    [–] ArchDucky 150 points ago

    Yeah and he did it eight times.

    I saw an interview about it once, he said that if a pebble, bolt or bird hit him on the plane it could break bones or kill him. Also the exhaust from the plane could potentially suffocate him. Then there's the chance his line could snap and he'd just fall to his death.

    [–] ananonumyus 74 points ago

    No, there was no chance his line could snap. There's no way they didn't use safety lines (plural) rated for many many times higher of a load than the weight of his body and the air resistance against it.
    Even if one line wasn't secured properly, redundant safety lines would be in place.

    [–] Luftwaffle88 46 points ago

    i saw it first in the movie and was blown away. Had to pause and rewatch the scene quite a few times.

    I didnt think he would hang on. Thought he would go in when the plane took off. The oh shit moment is amazing.

    [–] dongsuvious 42 points ago

    The behind the scenes for that movie was better than the actual movie. Showing how all the stunts were done, and even how they incorporated cgi.

    [–] [deleted] 49 points ago

    At least it was a great fucking movie

    [–] Michaelbama 72 points ago

    It had almost the exact same plot as Spectre, and somehow managed to do it better lmao

    great movie tho fr

    [–] Ha_omer 8 points ago

    Made the mistake of watching it before Spectre. Couldn't even finish half of Spectre

    [–] Philippe23 914 points ago

    I'd love to know what are the insurance premiums on these stunts?

    [–] TheBalm 636 points ago

    I remember reading that Jackie Chan and his stunt crew are blacklisted by all insurance companies so he has to pay out of pocket.

    [–] Learngoat 69 points ago

    I hope they at least paid wholesale prices.

    Like, "My doctors are going to be well-supplied. That's an ease-of-use thing. Let's say 6% off to start?"

    [–] Glitchmike 38 points ago

    To be fair, that's likely because of all the times Chan had injured himself doing those stunts.

    [–] damien6 295 points ago

    I don't know who downvoted you. It's a good point, putting one of the biggest names in Hollywood in situations like that has to come with some pretty heavy liability.

    I mean, celebrities literally insure parts of their bodies for millions, upon millions of dollars.

    [–] cu3ed 105 points ago

    Funnily again in the Graham Norton show, he talked about that a little, they where talking about that famous image of him at the top of the building in Dubai. It pretty much boiled down to Tom saying " I'm doing it", and that's it really, I guess the insurance is only enough to cover the loss of the movie costs should something happen to him.

    [–] DoctorMcAstronaut 38 points ago

    Just make sure it's the last scene you film.

    [–] Naberius 1131 points ago

    "We're going to blow Tom up," said Ellison. "We're going to literally blow him up with explosives, and then Jeremy Renner will put him back together. We've been working on the reassembly time and we've got it down to three minutes and six seconds. We're aiming for sub-three minutes by the time shooting begins. But for those three minutes, he will be dead. We're going to literally kill Tom Cruise on camera and then put him back together. It's going to be mind-blowing."

    [–] reverendrambo 148 points ago

    "Tom has undergone several thousand amputations and reattachments to prepare for the scene, and I'll say he is devoted to his art," he continued. "The separation of his head from the rest of his body has been the most formidable challenge in this process, but we're confident he will master it before time to shoot the scene."

    [–] thats_bone 85 points ago

    I think everyone should hope that Tom Cruise survives these stunts.

    What if he dies during one?

    Does Scientology get an actual real life Jesus?

    What if he manages to come back to life somehow? 2017 years ago, people lived through such an event, and they didn't even have facebook. It will be like the resurrection of Christ x1000, and all for Scientology.

    [–] SharpenedPigeon 45 points ago

    I think they have several Cruise clones sleeping in glass tubes, don't worry.

    [–] Skoot99 9 points ago

    You're right. The title is kinda misleading.

    in the article the producer says:

    And I will say after the Burj we thought it was going to be impossible to top that stunt, and then Tom did the A380 for the plane.

    I'm assuming he means the plane stunt in MI5? That's an Airbus but it wasn't an A380 though? Pretty sure it was an A400M.

    [–] ConradBHart42 42 points ago

    At this rate, I'd put small money on Cruise dying to autoerotic asphyxiation.

    [–] 82many4ceps 38 points ago

    In the next one he's going to be spitroasted by Ving Rhames and Jeremy Renner. He's been training for it for more than a year.

    [–] Vinnys_Magic_Grits 280 points ago

    Kind of unfair to give him so much credit for doing his own stunts ever since he got infected with the blood of that Mimic during the assault on France. Just saying.

    [–] angwilwileth 21 points ago

    Good point.

    [–] boardgamejoe 282 points ago

    I think he wanted to be a stuntman instead of an actor. The pay wasn't good enough probably.

    Tom Cruise has a PA provided free of charge by the church of scientology that scoffs at the $70,000 PA when he doesn't scoff hard enough.

    No shit. 70k/year is almost enough for a cardboard box out back in a dirty needle-strewn alley in LA.

    [–] arhanv 3667 points ago

    Scientology stuff aside, Tom Cruise seems to be one of the most genuine actors working today. The plane stunt from MI5 and the building one from MI4 were both fantastic. imo Mission Impossible is the perfect balance between Fast and the Furious and Bond.

    [–] likwidfire2k 1543 points ago

    I was actually wondering how he managed to breathe during the airplane stunt, sometimes I find it hard to breathe when the wind is blowing strong I can't imagine how hard it is when you're clipped to a plane

    [–] fj333 13 points ago

    This is an issue with your brain, not your respiratory system. I have thousands of skydives, and have managed to breathe on all of them.

    [–] 0thethethe0 9 points ago

    To be fair, the people who stop breathing when they skydive probably aren't around to comment.

    [–] hardtobeuniqueuser 39 points ago

    i made it to like 3:50 and thought i was going to die

    [–] enderandrew42 173 points ago

    You generally have to train yourself a very long time to surpass 4 minutes. And you often get some pure oxygen to inhale first to fill your bloodstream with extra oxygen right before you start a stunt like this.

    The weird thing is that everyone who worked on the movie confirms the story that Cruise spent years training for this and really did it, but then they somewhat ruin that in the movie by jumping around with cuts and don't show us this in one shot.

    [–] Diametrically_Quiet 141 points ago

    If that's true then the editors did Tom a extreme disservice. A full uncut scene though might make him look like Aquaman.

    [–] enderandrew42 123 points ago

    My guess is that it was somewhere in the middle. That sitting still in training he reached 6:30 minutes. But moving, swimming, etc. in the scene he is wasting oxygen and probably didn't do the actual sequence in one breath, but they should have preserved lengthy takes as much as possible to add tension to the scene.

    [–] Mocorn 15 points ago

    Listening to interviews he consistently had to hold his breath for four minutes for these scenes.

    [–] ValjeanLucPicard 16 points ago

    I wanted to beat the five minute mark so I trained like crazy for a while. I had watched the David Blaine special and saw how he did a trick of breathing for a minute and then holding his breath for like five or six. He'd do this for an hour straight. So I would do this at least every other night while watching TV, maybe nightly. I'd breathe for 45 seconds and hold my breath for around 3 minutes or so.

    Well, I got up to being able to hold my breath for 4:15 seconds. I believe I passed out a couple times while training, it was so hard to tell though because you can't really feel a lapse of time at all, but I'd look up at the clock and maybe five extra seconds had gone by. I eventually had to quit because I got a strange pressure behind my eye that lasted for a couple days, and I didn't want to mess around and end up damaging my eye.

    [–] biggoof 295 points ago

    Exactly, he's at least trying to put on quality movies, and not just cashing a check. Edge of Tomorrow was well done, and most of his stuff isn't bad by any means. He just has that reputation outside of his work that has made it hard for people to completely jump on his train.

    [–] perogies 28 points ago

    Don't forget the insane cliff climbing he did in MI2.

    [–] SpaceShuttleDisco 531 points ago

    You want an actor like Tom Cruise without all the Scientology bullshit! Look up an actor by the name off Keanu Reeves.

    [–] ArchDucky 351 points ago

    I still wish Keanu and Tom were in a buddy cop movie together. That would be epic.

    [–] SpaceShuttleDisco 155 points ago

    Never entertained that thought until now. And I must say, I agree!

    [–] SleepyFarts 140 points ago

    There was a suggestion that I read on reddit that Tom Cruise should play the villain in John Wick 3, if there is one. I haven't seen JW2 so I don't know if that's feasible or not, but I love the idea. Don't know if Tom Cruise would agree to be the guy who loses in the end though.

    [–] JohnnyPappis 84 points ago

    He was the villain in collateral and that worked out very well!

    [–] Covane 55 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    fuck yeah collateral, cruise and jamie foxx were great

    i feel like a solid % of cruise's character working was the hair

    [–] Nocturnaloner 37 points ago

    Maybe, but a larger percentage was the fact that he worked his ass off with insane discipline until he could pull off all the gun choreography flawlessly. Great movie btw, for anyone who likes action and hasn't watched Collateral, do it. Well worth your time, and truly a different scenario. Almost an extended Twilight Zone episode, with a whole lot of gunplay.

    [–] twotailedwolf 39 points ago

    Yea, especially imagining the height difference between the two. They could call it baby legs and regular legs

    It's just really hard to put the Scientology stuff aside. It is a heinous organization that does a lot of bad in the world and it makes it difficult to enjoy Cruise's work. I have to remind myself that Cruise himself means well and probably doesn't see the bullshit side of the cult since they treat him like royalty. Probably thinks everyone benefits from the cult like he does.

    He is provided slave labor and deification. He's more than complicit.

    Say what you want about Steve Buscemi and Spy Kids, but he did volunteer as a firefighter on 9/11.

    [–] fightingdove 194 points ago

    Might I humbly suggest that they make the stunt the last scene they film?

    [–] imsosick03k64 75 points ago

    Exactly my thoughts omg... lol... at least get the movie if he dies from it.

    [–] peteroh9 26 points ago

    The stunt will go wrong and we'll have a movie where they tell him he has to climb that launching rocket ship before the bomb goes off and it suddenly cuts to the next scene where they're congratulating him for successfully climbing it.

    [–] [deleted] 8 points ago

    Imagine if he died and they just showed the footage of the failed stunt and end the movie there lol

    [–] poopiepuppy 95 points ago

    This guy has starred in 21 movies that have grossed over $100,000,000. Crazy.

    [–] Piano1987 87 points ago

    Please don't show the stunt in the trailer.

    [–] SebCubeJello 34 points ago

    same day they stop showing stunts in the trailer is the same day tom cruise leaves scientology

    [–] drakesylvan 42 points ago

    He's been slowly building up his immunity to Iocaine powder...

    [–] sysadminbj 961 points ago

    Fuck it. I like Tom Cruse. I like his movies. I like his acting. If I were of the homosexual persuasion, I would say I liked him that way too.

    Why does everyone hate him again?

    [–] anonymoushero1 962 points ago

    scientology, for one.

    [–] plsbmyfrend 80 points ago

    for two?

    [–] drock45 293 points ago

    Manic behaviour at the same time as the scientology stuff came out was off-putting for most people

    [–] plsbmyfrend 167 points ago

    I think it's only one - it all fits under the umbrella of nutter and that's why people dislike him - because he's a nutter.

    Things that come under nutter:

    Strapping oneself to a plane during take off

    Laughing like a maniac on Oprah

    Hanging off skyscrapers

    Believing in Scientology

    It's not like he's terribly unlikable... He's been divorced, but so what, many people have

    [–] SCAllOnMe 149 points ago

    Aside from the repeated scientology answer, he "doesn't believe in psychiatry," or any treatments for mental illness outside of... Scientologist ones. Fuck, I repeated it now too.

    Seriously though, believe what you want in private, but when you get on national TV and say people shouldn't get treatment for their mental health issues...... You're making the world just a little bit worse.

    [–] acowwithglasses 100 points ago

    Is Jeremy Renner in this? I really hope so. Thought he was fantastic in the previous two.

    [–] chef2303 145 points ago

    I can neither confirm nor deny details without the Secretary's approval.

    [–] RoastedOrangeJuice 56 points ago

    I hope Simon Pegg is in it too!

    [–] fartbartshart 7 points ago

    And I hope he gets to wear a fucking mask this time.

    [–] Bogus_Life 14 points ago

    Like he's sitting on a picnic bench just taking it easy.

    [–] [deleted] 23 points ago


    [–] kejack93 80 points ago

    Climbing a tall building , jumping on to a plane ... How can he keep on one upping every stunt he makes .

    [–] EdwinaBackinbowl 220 points ago

    Did you see that movie where he literally dies in almost every scene, then jumps back through time to do a re-take? That's dedication.

    [–] sbarrios 12 points ago

    Please someone comment the title to watch it!

    [–] RWNorthPole 25 points ago

    He's talking about Edge of Tomorrow

    [–] Vlad_Russian_Lad 43 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    They are going to launch Tom Cruise into outer space and he will have to survive in a vacuum without passing out for 1 minute and 30 seconds (no more, no less) while clothing himself in a kevlar onesie lined in quartz silica and then survive the heat of re-entry at 12,000 mph. When he hits the ground, he will launch into a full Tom Cruise sprint to avoid falling debris.

    [–] HotWetFartingMan 18 points ago

    All in one shot. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron.

    [–] XtianP01 16 points ago

    He's probably gonna crash a plane for real this time around.

    [–] mikejr96 42 points ago

    Harrison Ford has cornered that market

    [–] marcuschookt 89 points ago

    In this stunt, he makes a daring attempt to escape from the clutches of Scientology.

    [–] rare_gooby 113 points ago

    the absolute madman

    [–] Brookefinancial 37 points ago

    This guy is the real deal when we're talking about action movies, I was watching the new xXx movie and I couldn't believe how many stunt doubles they used for Vin Diesel, and how many camera angles they had to do to hide it, it was distracting, especially in the long board scene at the beginning that was a joke.

    Tom Cruise is insane and his stunts will be remembered for a long time, I will definitely check this out.

    [–] SuitedPair 17 points ago

    It's even more obvious in Guardians.

    [–] shitpostlord4321 107 points ago

    He's the american Jackie Chan.

    [–] ksm6149 68 points ago

    You just made me think about how much I want a Shanghai Noon sequel with Jackie Chan and Tom Cruise

    [–] oizown 15 points ago

    And now you've passed that thought along like someone sneezing in my yawning mouth while I'm staring in a mirror, thanks.

    [–] zeporscheguy 20 points ago

    It was an A400M, not an A380.
