Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise is currently filming the seventh installment in the global blockbuster franchise, Mission Impossible. The 58-year-old actor canned a few dangerous and gravity-defying stunt sequences on Sunday, with footage from the shooting spot in Norway trending on social media. Shot near Hellesylt, the action star was seen flying through the air as he jumped off a huge ramp aboard a motorcycle on the top of mountain Helsetkopen. After leaping into the air, we see him let go of his motorbike, and descend down onto the ground in a parachute as the bike takes a fall as well. 

According to reports, the grand stunt took four takes to pull off, with a helicopter as well seen following Tom Cruise executing the sequence. Likewise, the actor on Saturday prepared to shoot another intense scene and donned a face mask during practice of the fight sequence. The iconic actor was dressed in all-black and rehearsed the sequence with a stuntman atop a train in Norway as production on the upcoming Mission Impossible 7 was relocated from the UK in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic crisis. 

In this fight scene, Tom Cruise was attached to a harness as it was taking place on the roof of a train, with the actor holding brief discussions with crew members prior to filming the scene. One who doesn't hold back from taking on challenging stunts, the scene also shows the actor running towards a helicopter as it took off into the sky. 

Shooting on Mission Impossible 7 was stalled for five months and production resumed in Norway, with the makers pushing the film's release to November 19, 2021. The COVID-19 outbreak had delayed the film's shooting after the number of cases in Italy began to rise in March, with Tom Cruise since then reportedly hiring a £500,000 ship for the film's crew to avoid any coronavirus-related delays to move the film's shoot to Norway. 

Tom Cruise will be reprising his role as Ethan Hunt in the seventh installment of the spy film series and once again with director Christopher McQuarrie, who previously worked on 2015's Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Mission: Impossible – Fallout in 2018. Check out the video below:
