Christopher McQuarrie says that Tom Cruise has done all these jumps with an expert team. Tom is about to jump out of the helicopter and land safely with a parachute. Tom Cruise says before jumping doesn’t be careful be confident, be confident.

Base Jumping Coach Miles Daisher and Stunt Coordinator Wade Eastwood say that Tom Cruise is an amazing person, if he is told something, he immediately locks him up. He is the most aware person whom I have met so far.

Tom Cruise jumps from the helicopter and two more people jump with him and shot Tom Cruise from every angle. After that Tom does a bike stunt on the track.

Miles says that Tom performed 30 sky jumps in a day, he is not a machine that can do 500 sky jumps in a day. Tom Cruise performed 13000 motocross jumps for the perfect shots.

A ramp was built and a pit was dug in front of it and filled with cardboard boxes so that the motorcycle would fall into it. Several models were made so that the stunt could be filmed in a perfect manner.

At the end of the video, Tom Cruise performs the most dangerous stunt which was shot on a mountain cliff in Norway.

Everything, where this stunt was filmed, was flown in by helicopter and a huge ramp was built on top of the cliff which took several months to build.

Christopher McQuarrie says that now we are going to do the biggest stunt of the film. Before performing the bike stunt, Tom Cruise jumps from the helicopter over the cliff and lands safely by opening the parachute.

Wade Eastwood says that there are rocks all around him and he has to avoid these rocks and fly between them.

Christopher McQuarrie says it’s foggy weather here and we have to film it well in the middle of it.

Cameras and drones are prepared before Tom starts doing bike stunts. Wade Eastwood says that this type of stunt is very dangerous, it can cause serious injury or even death. If the jump is not done at the right angle and at the right time and the parachute does not open on time, then everything is over.

When Tom Cruise does a bike stunt from the ramp built on the cliff, then he jumps down with the bike, seeing that everyone’s breath gets stuck. When he opens the parachute, then everyone’s breath comes and they are relaxed.

Tom Cruise performs this dangerous stunt safely 6 times a day. Tom Cruise is a legendary actor only we can do such dangerous stunts.
