The brilliant and ever so talented Tom Cruise is in process of shooting his 6th Mission Impossible movie, called ‘Mission Impossible-Fallout’. Well, we all know shooting a big project like this isn’t a walk in the park. There ups and downs and mishaps while shooting, and Tom Cruise experienced one in this movie!
The actor broke his ankle while performing a stunt on set!
The cast appeared on The Graham Norton Show and the host showed a slow-mo version of how Mr. Cruise broke his ankle.
Mission Impossible 6 has a fantastic cast which appeared on The Graham Norton Show to promote their upcoming movie. The stars include Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson and Simon Pegg.
Tom Revealed at the beginning of the video that due to his ankle inju,ry the movie had to be ‘shut down’ for a while.
The star had also brought some footage for the audience, to show exactly how he broke his ankle. He brought clips of the stunt shot from 3 angles – front, back, and side – to clearly elucidate the accident for the audience.
One of the clips was a slow-mo, zoomed-in, side-view version, which shows Cruise’s foot twist as he hit the wall during his big jump from one building to the other.
The star jokingly said he blames Henry Cavill for the mishap. Tom described that he was chasing after Henry Cavill in the scene and said, “It’s all his fault, I blame him.”
Before playing the last, zoomed-in version of the clip, Simon still had not watched any of them, which Tom hilariously pointed out, “Simon still hasn’t seen it!”
Simon Pegg refused to watch the video from any angle! He said, “I can’t watch this,” and everyone burst into laughter!
Simon Pegg then said, “They keep trying to show it to me and I’m like, NOOO!”
Before playing the final clip, Graham warned, “If you’re squeamish, don’t watch it.”
The crowd echoed a loud “Ow” as the camera slowly displayed how the impact of the wall obliterated Tom’s ankle as he hit it. Tom himself said on the show, “I knew instantly it was broken.”
The movie still has about six weeks of shooting left. The cast started shooting in March last year but due to Tom’s injury, the shoot is taking longer to finish.
It is extremely commendable on Tom’s part because while shooting has resumed, the star revealed that his ankle was still broken.
Graham asked him in the beginning, “Are you fully recovered? Are you well?”
To this, Tom said, “It’s still broken, but I’m doing well…. We have a release date so we gotta keep going.”
Well, salute to your spirit, sir, and all the best to the team of Mission Impossible 6!
