Watch the moment Tom Cruise broke his foot while filming Mission: Impossible – Fallout
Warning: This is not for the squeamish! Tom Cruise appeared on The Graham Norton Show with co-stars Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill and Simon Pegg to promote his upcoming film Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and brought along some behind-the-scenes footage. In it, we see the moment when he broke his foot during a stunt, something that shut down production for a while. The third bit of footage is a doozy, but there is a warning from Norton in the video. You can check it out in the player below. It’s worth staying until the end to see what actually happened in the shot.
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.
The Mission: Impossible franchise launched in 1966 with the original CBS television series, which ran for seven seasons and 171 episodes. Mission: Impossible returned in 1988 with a rebooted series on ABC. It failed to find an audience, however, and was cancelled after two seasons. It was nearly a decade later that the Tom Cruise-led Mission: Impossible feature film would turn the small screen spy series into a hugely-successful cinematic franchise.
Christopher McQuarrie, who previously helmed Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, is once again writing and directing the Paramount Pictures sequel.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout will open in theaters on July 27, 2018. What did you think of the video? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
