If you thought Tom Cruise’s stunt scaling the Burj Khalifa in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was insane…
I’m trying to find words, but this is one of those videos that speaks for itself.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout premieres July 27.
Adrenaline rushes. Defying death. Doing the unthinkable. C’mon, it’s a Monday!
Fact: Tom Cruise doesn’t care what day it is.
(FYI – There’s one quick, but funny, F-bomb at 3:28)
Well, there’s always Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday…
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
While she is super strong and skilled and considered a hero among some, she doesn’t quite meet the standard for a traditional superhero. She doesn’t fly, have x-ray vision or have a otherwordly hammer. And in the age of cinematic superheroes, despite subtle and clearly distinguishable differences, many presume that all superheroes are the same.
That idea is wrong, but that’s an analysis for a different day.
The 2018 version of Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) will challenge that generalized perception by adding a necessary space. Lara Croft is not a superhero with super powers, but a super hero with seemingly relatable abilities.
Well, relatable and attainable in the close, but still far away sense, I suppose.
Like up, up and away…
Until Mission Impossible 6 (title TBD) premieres in theaters, every fan of the action-packed franchise will be cruising around Tom for any exciting details concerning those always exhilerating, death-defying stunts.
Exhibit A: TV host Graham Norton during his recent interview with the aforementioned actor.
Credit Graham Norton for his effort to try to pry any type of detail about Mr. Cruise’s forthcoming stunt guaranteed to shock us all in the best ways imaginable. We all want to know. Well, we don’t want to know, but instead we want to see something incredibly risky. That’s the business us fans are in.
Remember when he scaled the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol?
How does Tom Cruise top that?
As the Mission Impossible 6 producer disclosed in the first video above, it seems like Mr. Cruise is literally preparing to accomplish such a (mysterious) mind-blowing feat. Attempting to wrap my head around it still seems impossible.
I suppose that’s part of the mission of these action movies.
