He’s a Hollywood action man who takes pride in performing his own stunts.
But daredevil Tom Cruise came unstuck after he injured himself during a failed building jump stunt while filming Mission: Impossible 6 in London on Sunday.
From Daily Mail
Video footage has emerged showing the esteemed actor, 55, taking a gigantic leap off some rigging and onto a rooftop while attached to a harness, but his jump appears to fall short and he crashes into the side of a building.
However, the star – who has been in training for a year in order to carry out the extreme stunts needs for the next Mission Impossible installment – seems to fall short of the mark and smashes into the building before falling down its side.
Following his crash, Tom is then seen limping away and falling to his knees, before clutching onto his legs seeming in apparent pain.
As the video ends, he is helped away from the set by stunt professionals.
Sporting all black attire, the Ethan Hunt actor leapt powerfully using his arms for added momentum while a safety harness dangled in the wind behind him.
Known for his adrenaline fuelled set-pieces, the star has been snapped in Paris as well as London for the upcoming flick.
Tom looked particularly animated mid-jump with his alarmed expression reflecting the danger of the stunt he was undertaking.
TMZ reported Sunday that Tom failed a building stunt jump at least twice and referenced a second video showing him coming up short while trying to clear a building’s ledge with one hop.
‘The hit against the side of the building sounds crushing,’ the article said
While most of the details of the plot of the latest film have been kept tightly under wraps, Skydance Media CEO David Ellison revealed that Tom will be performing the biggest stunt sequence of his career in the film.
Ellison told Collider: ‘What Tom is doing in this movie I believe will top anything that’s come before. It is absolutely unbelievable—he’s been training for a year.
‘It is going to be, I believe, the most impressive and unbelievable thing that Tom Cruise has done in a movie, and he has been working on it since right after Rogue Nation came out [in 2015].’
‘It’s gonna be mind-blowing,’ he teased.
The upcoming movie is set to be action-packed and Tom is no stranger to getting stuck into stunts for his archive of acting work.
