Tom Cruise Dangles From The World’s Tallest Building As He Performs A Death-defying Stunt For New Mission Impossible Movie
From jumping off buildings to fighting with samurai swords and scaling mountains without ropes, Tom Cruise has always insisted on doing his own stunts when making an action movie.
And this weekend the actor proved he is still very much the adrenaline junkie as he dangled almost 2,717 ft in the air from the tallest building in the world.
The actor was filming near the top of the Burj Kahlifa in Dubai for scenes for the fourth Mission: Impossible film
On Saturday, the actor was snapped hanging precariously from the observation deck of the building, which is 124 floors high, as fans watched in awe and terror from the street below.
Dressed all in black, the 48-year-old ran across the windows of the tower as technicians and film crew watched nervously from an open window above him.
Another actor hung alongside him for the scene, which see Cruise jumping over him during a chase round the exterior of the building
‘I love having the camera right there in front of me, where you can see me holding a shot all the way through.
‘I think it adds to the excitement for an audience. It’s something that is challenging to do and fun for me.
‘There’s always that adrenalin before you do a stunt. But we go through everything, we prepare and we make sure we are ready.’
