Tom Cruise, who is basking in the glory of Top Gun: Maverick, will be next seen in Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One.
Recently, at Jimmy Kimmel Live, he opened up about performing the high-stakes motorbike stunt in the film that was released in the first trailer and the BTS featurette. The video featured Cruise riding a motorbike off a ridge, making a free fall on the ground as the parachute opened. He said that they shot the sequence eight times and he had about six seconds to open the parachute before hitting the ground. He also said that they ensured that he is not attached to the bike in anyway when he was riding off the ridge.
According to Collider, he said, “I just use everything I can, use every tool that I have, to entertain the audience. Even as a kid, I’d used to steal lumber from the junkyard, and I’d ride down the hill as fast as I could and hit the ramp and go over garbage cans. I didn’t work… I went through it, split the wood in half and went through the garbage cans, and spent the next few days in the hospital.”
