‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Behind the Scenes Video Offers Look at Tom Cruise Train Stunt

Imagine just driving along and seeing Tom Cruise chillin’ on top of a train beside you.

Some behind-the-scenes action that’s been shared online has unveiled a little of what we can expect in the next Mission: Impossible movie.

Actor-turned-stuntman daredevil/insurance headache Tom Cruise can be seen on top of a train in a video posted by Twitter account Cinephilia & Beyond. You can see Cruise and crew members seemingly between takes while on the rail transport as it rolls through the beautiful Norwegian countryside. Cruise nonchalantly offers a smile and wave to the laughing fans that caught the moment.

Director Christopher McQuarrie, continuing on with the franchise after having directed Rogue Nation and Fallout, shared another look at the train stunt. “Norway’s scale and beauty have left an indelible and defining imprint on our film and reminded us that anything is possible,” McQuarrie posted.

Norway’s scale and beauty have left an indelible and defining imprint on our film and reminded us that anything is possible. On behalf of everyone working on Mission: Impossible, our sincerest thanks to The Norwegian Film Incentive, The Norwegian Railway Museum, the infinitely patient Stranda and Rauma Municipalities, our endlessly enduring Norwegian crew, along with everyone who supported our filming here. And, of course… The Mountain. Most of all, we give thanks to the warm and welcoming people of Norway. Your kindness and consideration are nothing less than an inspiration. We’ll miss you dearly and look forward to seeing you again. Tusen hjertelig takk. Buckle up, Roma. Here we come… #MI7MI8

It won’t be the first time the franchise will have a train sequence. The first film, 1996’s Mission: Impossible, culminated in a big action sequence aboard France’s high-speed TGV train.

As you would by now expect, Cruise, 58, is looking to once again push the bounds of leading-star stuntwork in the still-untitled film. Last month The Daily Mail shared this set video of a crazy motorcycle stunt that will have Cruise getting some major air.

Mission: Impossible 7, also set to star Ving Rhames, Henry Czerny, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson Vanessa Kirby, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, and Esai Morales, will be hitting cinemas on November 18th (Australi) and 19th (US) 2021.
