  • The actor known for doing his own stunts had to do over 100 jumps to get the right shot

Cruise himself doesn't add much other than saying how excited he is for audiences to see this latest act of derring-do.

Paramount Pictures has released a behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming Mission: Impossible - Fallout showing all of the prep that it took to prepare for the film's HALO jump stunt as star Tom Cruise plummets to the earth from a plane over 25,000 feet in the air. Cruise said he isn't some reckless daredevil; he just believes that doing these stunts himself impacts the viewing experience in ways important enough for him to be there at all times.

"The HALO jump is a sequence Tom and I have been talking about for a number of years", said McQuarrie. Watch the official featurette from Mission: Impossible - Fallout starring Tom Cruise where he completes a High Altitude Low Oxygen skydive jump from over 25k feet.
