For a man who has swung from a 2,700ft building, clung to the outside of a plane taking off and learned to hold his breath underwater for six minutes, a parachute jump doesn’t represent a Mission: Impossible, even at the age of 58.
Tom Cruise, who famously likes to perform his own stunts, last week threw himself out of a helicopter 10,000ft over the over the Oxfordshire countryside for the latest movie in the franchise.
Two of the other cast members joined him in the skydive after filming on Mission: Impossible 7 resumed following a Covid shutdown.

Cruise has been practising his stunts during lockdown, and has been seen racing around dirt tracks on a motocross bike and piloting a helicopter.
The actor broke his ankle while filming a stunt for the last Mission: Impossible movie in London three years ago, but that hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm for daredevil action.
He later recalled how he sustained the injury when his foot hit a wall during a heart-stopping rooftop chase involving co-star Henry Cavill.RELATED ARTICLES

‘I knew instantly my ankle was broken,’ he said. ‘But I really didn’t want to do it again so just got up and carried on with the take.
‘[After the shot] I said “It’s broken, that’s a wrap, take me to hospital”, and everyone got on the phone and made their vacation arrangement.’
Cruise – who is planning to shoot a future movie on board the International Space Station – personally lobbied Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden for permission to allow shooting to restart on Mission: Impossible 7, despite the coronavirus crisis, but with a reduced crew. It is now due for release in November next year.
Last week it was revealed that McQuarrie wanted to blow up a 111-year-old bridge in Poland as part of the shoot, much to the consternation of locals.

Another cruise ship in Norway stalled amid infection fears
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A cruise ship with 123 passengers on board and a crew of 85 docked Wednesday in the Norwegian harbor of Bodoe but no one could disembark after a former passenger from Denmark tested positive for the coronavirus upon returning home.
“We take the situation very seriously,” Mayor Ida Pinneroed told Norwegian broadcaster NRK, adding that authorities were in contact with the Norwegian Institute of Public Health on whether the remaining passengers should be tested. The crew will be tested.
In a statement, ship owner SeaDream Yacht Club said “we sincerely hope that there is no COVID-19 on board, and we are not aware of any other guests or crew who are infected or have any symptoms, but we are taking all necessary precautions.”
The ship owner said the former passenger on Tuesday was found to be positive for the virus during a routine check upon arrival in Denmark. The person had no symptoms of COVID-19 during the voyage and traveled home from Tromsoe on Aug. 2 as planned.
Meanwhile, the number of people on another Norwegian cruise ship, the MS Roald Amundsen, who have tested positive for the virus has reached 44, authorities said. It’s not clear how that outbreak began.
Following that outbreak, the ship’s owner halted all cruise trips Monday and Norway closed its ports to cruise ships for two weeks.
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health late Tuesday said 35 crew members and nine passengers tested positive. All passengers were registered as living in Norway.
The Hurtigruten cruise line often acts like a local ferry, traveling from port to port along Norway’s west coast. Some disembarking passengers may have spread the virus to local communities.
