If the release of “Mission: Impossible 7” has been postponed to September 2022, Tom Cruise is already preparing the sequel. And what promises, perhaps, as the most dangerous stunt of a career that does not lack.
The song “Go higher” of Tina Arena would it be the hyme of Tom Cruise when it comes to attacking a new episode of Mission: Impossible? Ever since her ascent of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, in Ghost Protocol in 2011, the star has never stopped pushing her limits and braving death, so that each film surpasses the last in spectacle.
And it is not with the 8 that this will change visibly. While the release of 7, in which he must notably jump off a cliff on a motorcycle before doing a base jump to land, is now scheduled for September 28, 2022 in our theaters, the actor is already preparing what promises to be one of the bravery pieces from the next.
After revealing in October that Tom Cruise was learning to fly a WWII aircraft, The Sun confirms his statements with some details on the stunt to come. The actor was indeed seen coming out of the cockpit to sit on the wing, once the biplane had reached a certain altitude.
Obviously harnessed, the interpreter of Ethan Hunt then went upside down just before the plane turned around, allowing him to be right side up. And it was after a dive and a spin organized by the pilot that he quietly regained his place.
Followed by another plane, presumably to allow director Christopher McQuarrie to fix camera angles and movements, Tom Cruise should be a little more intense when the scene is shot. In view of what is described, it was more of a first outing to familiarize yourself with the device and the environment, than a real rehearsal.
If the sequence in question is not visible in the trailer, we will have to wait until July 5, 2023 to discover it in our theaters. Fortunately, another Mission: Impossible will be released a few months earlier.
