Tom Cruise uses the phrase “time expands” when filming his daredevil cinematic exploits.
The 60-year-old actor is renowned for documenting as many of his own action sequences as possible, regardless of the danger, and in his latest blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning, Part One, he has a knife battle on top of a moving train.
On the first day of filming for the action sequel, Tom Cruise rode a motorcycle off a Norwegian mountain and jumped with a parachute, a scene that required eight takes to capture perfectly.
When the adrenaline begins to circulate through his body during exploits, the Hollywood legend confesses that time becomes both “short and long” for him.
When filming dangerous exploits, Tom Cruise believes time extends.
Thursday night (June 22) at the London première of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning, Part One, he told the media: “When I train, there’s so much going on that time expands. When I’m falling, six seconds seems both brief and lengthy.
It is Cruise’s eighth appearance as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, and the majority of the film was shot in the United Kingdom.
The star of Top Gun confesses he has numerous concepts for future stunts that he intends to film in London.
He stated, “When I gaze at the structures here, I believe I could scale that one! Where to begin!
“I’ve always desired to travel the world, interact with diverse civilizations, and celebrate them, and Mission: Impossible enables me to do so. It is a tremendous honor to be able to do it.”
During the premiere, Tom Cruise signed autographs and posed for photos with admirers who had waited for hours to meet their icon.
His co-stars Pom Klementieff, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, and Cary Elwes joined him on the red carpet.
