Tom Cruise Stops Traffic for M:I 6 Stunts

Tom Cruise visited London last weekend to film some of his stunts for the impending Mission: Impossible film.

Commuters and fans gathered around the Blackfriars Bridge, London, in hopes to catch a glimpse of the actor. Tom could be seen traversing the railway bridge whilst a low-flying helicopter filmed. When you look at Tom Cruise, you can’t help realising how small he is! It comes as no surprise that people use a height calculator, to try and work out how tall he is. With this being said, this doesn’t stop him from doing his own stunts!

Although car and boat traffic was kept away from the area, the train service ran as normal.

The movie started filming last year but hit a set back when Tom Cruise injured himself whilst filming a stunt back in August 2017. The incident occurred when an ill-timed jump caused him to hit the edge of a roof hard. Breaking his ankle, the actor took time out to heal.

Tom Cruise, 55, is known for his dedication to performing his own stunts. The most popular ones being it iconic motorbike stunt in Mission: Impossible 2 and most recently hanging from a plane in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, Man from U.N.C.L.E) is rumored to play the unnamed villain. Sporting a very stylish mustache, Cavill has been seen filming on set.

Christopher McQuarrie is returning as writer/producer/director. His past works with Cruise include Jack Reacher and The Mummy.

The Mission: Impossible franchise never fails to provide the adrenaline rush we all seek in action movies. Explosions, fighting, and amazing stunts are just some of the things we all expect from Ethan Hunt and his team.

Mission: Impossible 6 will hit theatres July 2018 and I for one cannot wait for this next installment.
