A footage recently making rounds in the social media shows a locomotive plunging from a cliff in England, Derbyshire. This scene was shot in Stoney Middleton, and happens to be the latest block in the superhit franchise. Onlookers and photographers looked on in awe as the engine which was meant to steam roll down the hill, went down the hill and disappeared into a quarry.
While Cruise was not on the train, he was clearly spotted over at a helicopter flying and onlooking as the accident happened. The scene construction, which took months has had the entire crew in disbelief and awe.
"Waited 5 months for this shot... of the train in the new Mission Impossible movie going off the cliff!! Tom was there too, amazing day !!!" – a localite apparently stated the BBC. The movie is scheduled for a release on May 2022 and is directed by Christopher McQuarrie.
"I am a very physical actor and I love doing them. I study and train and take a lot of time figuring it all out. I have broken a lot of bones," Cruise had been quoted earlier telling Uproxx. "The first time of any stunt is nerve-wracking, but it's also exhilarating. I have been told a few times during shooting a stunt to stop smiling."
Last year, fans had spotted Cruise perked on the roof of a speeding train in Norway. This was a part of Mission: Impossible 7 stunt. This movie is also the first to see Cruise perform a “Halo jump” Skydive, while jumping across rooftops and also suffering with a nasty injury. The film additionally stars Ving Rhame, Simon Pegg, and Vanessa Kirby.
“I pitched the idea of making two movies, and now I have to justify why it’s two movies,” Christopher McQuarrie had previously told the Empire back in 2019. “You’ve got to earn that. You’ve got to make something that swallows the last three movies whole. I’m freaked out now. We’ve talked ourselves into something. Holy sh*t.”
He added, “We’ve figured out three obscene things that he’s doing that I’m terrified of, that make the helicopter chase look like tinker toys. He’s training and he calls me and describes what he’s doing and I laugh and I cheer, then I hang up and I puke into a bucket. He’s training quite intensely right now.”
