“This is far and away the most dangerous thing we’ve ever attempted,” Cruise said. “We’ve been working on this for years. We’re going to shoot it in Norway and it will be a motorcycle jump off a cliff into a base jump. I’ve wanted to do it since I was a little kid. And it all comes down to one thing — the audience.”
The clip outlines the extraordinary preparation that went into the scene, including conducting hundreds of parachute jumps from a helicopter and thousands of motocross jumps on dirt tracks constructed solely for Cruise to practice on.
