Tom Cruise is known to have done some of the most impossible stunts ever done by an actor. Yet he believes in stopping at nothing when it comes to his movies and perfectly meeting the requirements for his role. Everyone who is a follower of the “Mission Impossible” franchise will definitely be looking forward to watching its fifth installment titled “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.” This latest scoop about the movie will just make audiences watch the movie even more.
According to Yahoo! Movies, Tom Cruise who has climbed rocks, scaled the tallest building in the world from the outside or even hung around on the wing of a military jumbo jet has done something even more unbelievably awesome. That is holding breath for a full six and a half minutes. One can see the glimpse of the scene in the second trailer that was released recently.
In the trailer, actor’s character, Ethan Hunt, can be seen wearing a black spandex-like material before jumping into a pressurised container of water where he is unable to take “no metal” which means he jumps in it without an oxygen cylinder and hence ends up holding his breadth. In an interview with USA Today, he spoke about the stunt mentioning that it was shot in just one take. He added that he had been practicing a lot on set with all the equipment.
Tom Cruise also mentioned that this was one of those stunts that he always wanted to do. The underwater shot is said to be a continuous shot based on the principles of continuity of action where there are no cuts or takes in between the scene and it’s just one long scene that is captured. The stunt becomes even more difficult to do when you are not just holding your breath but also moving around. “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” is set to release next month and will see Ethan take on an organisation called the Syndicate.
