Tom Cruise is known for his death-defying stunts and high energy. In his latest “Mission Impossible” installation, he is pushing the boundaries performing a stunt he says is “the most dangerous thing we’ve ever attempted.”

In a behind-the-scenes video, the work it took to perform this stunt was shown. According to the video, the 60-year-old actor skydived 500 times and performed 13,000 motocross jumps in preparation for the stunt. This nine-minute clip first premiered at ComicCon back in 2021.

“Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One,” was originally set to premiere on July 23, 2021. Due to COVID-19 and Cruise’s work for “Top Gun: Maverick,” the date has been pushed back four times in a matter of two years.

To further promote the action spy film, Cruise recorded himself on one of his many skydive jumps.

In the one-minute and a half clip, Cruise shows himself in an aircraft in the sky over South Africa, a destination where parts one and two of the new “Mission Impossible” movie were filmed.

He thanks everyone for supporting and watching “Top Gun: Maverick” before panning the camera to the film’s director Christopher McQuarrie. He then does a quick shoutout to the audience before directing Cruise to get back to work. Cruise then does what seems like second nature to him at this point, he jumps out of the plane. This offers another sneak preview of what we can expect from the film.

In terms of casting expectations, Cruise will return as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt along with Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Frederick Schmidt and Greg Tarzan Davis. Newcomers to the franchise include Hayley Atwell, Esai Morales, Pom Klementieff and Shea Whigham Holt McCallany, Nick Offerman and Janet McTeer.

The “Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One” is set to premiere July 14, 2023. Part two is expected to drop on June 28, 2024.
