Tom Cruise performs first ever Halo jump stunt in Abu Dhabi

Tom Cruise performs first ever Halo jump stunt in Abu Dhabi

This is a military technique that stands for High Altitude, Low Open and it was as hard to plan and capture on film as you can imagine.

Tom Cruise has praised the UAE for its help in creating "one of his most unsafe stunts yet".

Hollywood actor Tom Cruise is known for high-voltage scenes in his Mission Impossible series. As the featurette reveals, director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise have been pondering this particular stunt for a while now. They can result in death, hypoxia, or insanity, according to experts. They used "the world's largest wind tunnels" to do so, and when it actually came time for the real thing, they had to develop a specifically designed helmet in order for Cruise to properly breathe during the fall.

"You start losing your mind, but you don't really realize it", explained chief instructor Ray Armstrong.

The scene took more than 100 jumps to complete, with a small window each day around sunset the only time of day the crew were able to film.

Trump lawyers' letter challenges subpoena
Giuliani told Fox News on May 12 that Mueller notified Trump's legal team two weeks prior that he will not indict the president. In a Saturday tweet , Trump asked whether the special counsel or Justice Department had leaked the letter to the media.

"I can't wait for an audience to see this", Cruise said.

The lengths Tom Cruise will go for our entertainment is insane.

For everything to go smoothly during the 25,000-feet jump, Cruise wore a custom-made oxygen mask that is also shown in the movie, and made sure to stick to the choreography that prevented air collisions with the camera guy.

The Cruiser's commitment to in-camera stuntwork is well-known by this stage, and everything so far about 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' seems to suggest that he's not only going for broke, but that's he actively putting his body on the line for this movie.
