Film - Mission Impossible: Fallout


You know how Tom Cruise likes to do all his own stunts in films? Watch how he got on with a HALO jump in this Behind the Scenes clip from Mission Impossible: Fallout...

What's a HALO jump I hear you ask? Well, the clip will tell you but it's essentially a

parachute jump. Or, in other words, the idiot parachutist will jump from the aircraft at heights of over 25,000 feet, free-fall for a period of time at terminal velocity, and open their parachute at an altitude as low as 2000 feet. This combination of high downward speed, minimal forward airspeed and the use of only small amounts of metal in the suit, parachute and harness, helps to defeat radar and reduces the amount of time a parachute might be visible to ground observers, enabling a stealthy entry into a foreign country.

In other, other words - he's just mad.

The best intentions often come back to haunt you. “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT” finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg,Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.

The film comes to UK cinemas on 26th July.
