See Tom Cruise Scale the World's Tallest Building in Mission Impossible

10.26.2011

A new behind-the-scenes video from MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL shows Tom Cruise up to his old tricks again. No, not going insane and jumping on couches, doing his own stunts.

That's right, the little actor has always liked to do his own stunts whenever he can and in GHOST PROTOCOL he got to do perhaps the coolest one ever- walk along the side of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. This thing is 2,723 feet tall, people. For reference's sake, the taller of the two World Trade Center buildings was 1,368 feet.

So, pretty tall, and you'd have to have some pretty large cojones to run down the windows like it's any other day, but Cruise does it. Insane stuff- check it out below. 

I'm not the biggest fan of the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE series but Brad Bird (IRON GIANT) doing his first live-action film pretty much means I'm required to buy a ticket. Let's hope for the best.

Scientomology aside

I try to put Tom's absurd beliefs and personal life aside and just enjoy his work. His movies are more Hits than misses, and he does put 110% into his roles. Have to give him credit for doing his own stunts. That takes some balls!

Ha ha! Do you guys all share a brain?!? Not long ago, there was enough Tom Cruise bashing here to fill up an encyclopedia! Now that you've the man do something badass, you've all collectively jizzed your load in utter praise. Well you know what? I happy you've come back to your senses :D

Don't hate just coz you think its "cool".

For the record, I've never bashed Cruise, ever.
i do agree with you that ppl jump on the hate train, but this section may not be the best place to state, or judge. When i guarantee most of these people post on this page are loyal fans (for the most part)

I'm very excited for this film. Looks great.

I just hope Josh Holloway gets a decent amount of screen time.

That's pretty damn insane. I gotta give Tom props for doing this kind of stuff. I'd probably start getting vertigo from something like that. And considering that Tom is one of the world's biggest superstars and probably has his agent terrified for him, all the more props to him for sticking his neck out like that.

My palms are sweaty just watching this...

Tom does what I wouldn't do in a million years and for that he is the f#cking man! The man is dedicated to his art and we love him for it.

Just like an athlete don't care about your personal life as long your bringing it to the game. same as an actor dont care how easily it is to make fun of you, as long as your making quality movies.

Plus just saw Magnolia and Tom Cruise brings his best in that movie especially confronting his father. Best scene out of his career

Dude. I totally agree with your athletic remark. That goes for me when I see an actor. I really don't care what they do in real life as long as their work are great. Do we really want to know? After all it's all personal.

Tom Cruise is simply the best. One of the last true movie stars in cinema. Can't stand people who criticize him.

Unreal...

I don't care what anyone thinks of him...

He's fucking Great.

Such a committed actor, love that he's doing that stunt, and theres no CGI or stunt double.
