Ever wonder what it would be like to hang off a rope attached to a helicopter? If you want to know, just ask Tom Cruise. The actor has been doing his own stunts for decades, and in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, it looks like he takes things to a whole other level. After previously scaling one of the biggest buildings in the world and attaching himself to a plane during takeoff, Cruise’s character one-ups things again in the sixth installment of the action franchise with a must-see helicopter stunt.
The latest trailer for the film brings Ethan Hunt, played by Cruise, and his team of operatives—Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), and Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames)—back together for another mission to help prevent a global catastrophe. This time around, Hunt and his team bump heads with CIA operative Henry Cavill, fitted with a fantastic mustache, as they ride through Paris on motorcycles, scale buildings with no climbing equipment, and skydive out of airplanes, a stunt that reportedly took 106 takes to get right.
Take a look at those insane stunts in the newest trailer:
Cruise broke his ankle doing a stunt for the film and missed a chunk of time, but the hiatus didn’t stop M:I6 from hitting their release date. Now that filming is done, Cruise can finally take a break—until the next mission, that is.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout hits theaters on July 27.
