Tom Cruise does the majority of his own stunts and his latest one is by far his most challenging one yet!
After dangling from the outside of a plane mid-flight in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, the 55-year-old actor has taken it one step further for the upcoming movie, Mission: Impossible: Fallout.
Cruise has become the first actor to do a HALO jump [High Altitude High Opening] on camera.
The technique is used by the military to avoid radar detection and it involves the parachutist jumping from a much greater height than usual and opening their parachute much closer to the ground.
One of the world’s largest wind tunnels was built so that Cruise could practice the shot before getting up in the air. He then started doing eight jumps a day to get his form right and ended up doing more than 100 dives in total for the shot.
