Mission: Impossible 7: Tom Cruise performs a harrowing airplane stunt in the new Mission: Impossible 7 trailer, which leaked!!

Tom Cruise performs a harrowing airplane stunt in the new Mission: Impossible 7 trailer, which leaked last weekend.

The footage was screened at CinemaCon in April, to promote “Top Gun: Maverick,” but it has since leaked online. In this leaked promotional video, Tom Cruise is strapped to an aircraft hurtling toward earth. It was shown as part of the premiere of “Top Gun: Maverick” at CinemaCon in April and subsequently shared on social media over the weekend by EW.

Cruise shouts, “Hey, everyone!” in the video. “I wish I could be there with you. I apologize for the extra noise; as you can see, we’re filming Mission: Impossible’s newest installment right now. We’re currently filming over the lovely Blyde River Canyon in South Africa, as you can see.”

Cruise emphasizes that he was “filming this project for the big screen” before writer Christopher McQuarrie appears alongside him in a biplane. McQuarrie directed the last two “Mission: Impossible” films and will direct the next two installments, entitled “Dead Reckoning Part One” and “Part Two.”

“Hey, everybody,” McQuarrie says as he approaches the car. “Listen, I hate to cut you off, but we’re running out of light; we gotta go.”

The heart-stopping footage of Cruise was posted on social media by several people over the weekend. Ford, an actor and director, is one of them. In the video, Cruise is seen standing up before two biplanes screech toward earth.

“Mission: Impossible” was Cruise’s most popular film, with a gross of over $100 million. It became the fifth-highest grossing film in United States history last weekend, according to The Wrap , after surpassing $700 million at the domestic box office.

The new aerial video, on the other hand, is dramatically different from one filmed by Cruise and McQuarrie in 2018. Pegg’s costar Simon Pegg was both impressed and concerned with Cruise’s never-ending effort to outdo himself with every stunt.

“He doesn’t have a stunt double,” Pegg said of Cruise in June. “There’s a shiver you get when you think about the notion that this guy is really jumping off a cliff on a motorbike and opening his chute 100 feet from the ground – it makes you nervous.”

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One will be released in theaters on July 14, 2023.
