Highlights

  • Tom Cruise pulls a motorcycle stunt on sets of new Mission Impossible
  • Cruise is known to do most of his on-screen stunts himself
  • Over the years, Cruise's on-screen characters have used motorcycles

Tom Cruise is back in action, and this time he's jumping yet another motorcycle in the latest installment of the Mission Impossible franchise. The film is being shot in the UK, and this time around, it's the real deal, a true-blue, death-defying stunt where Cruise takes a leap off a high ramp on a Honda motocross bike. Fifty-eight-year-old Cruise and the bike, both are tethered with cables, so presumably the action scene is being shot over and over again. According to the Daily Mail, the stunt was filmed on a 650-foot ramp on the film's set in Oxfordshire, England and the stunt is one of the most expensive to have been shot in the UK, costing over 2 million GBP! That is well over Rs 19 crore, just for one stunt!
