Must read

Director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise continue their daring collaboration in the Mission: Impossible franchise, known for pushing the boundaries of jaw-dropping stunts. The upcoming film, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, promises yet another thrilling adventure, including a high-octane motorcycle leap off a cliff. In addition to this highly anticipated sequence, the duo filmed two major action scenes in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, as showcased in a behind-the-scenes video released by the Abu Dhabi Film Commission.

The first scene takes place in the state-of-the-art Abu Dhabi airport, where Cruise’s Ethan Hunt must navigate through the terminal, trying to maintain a low profile before making his dramatic escape onto the roof. McQuarrie describes the airport’s rooftop as resembling “giant steel sand dunes,” providing a visually stunning backdrop for an exhilarating sprint.

However, it is the second action scene that truly stands out. Inspired by the remarkable desert landscapes, McQuarrie and Cruise decided to utilize the breathtaking sand dunes and a vast salt flat for a chase sequence. In this unprecedented move for the franchise, Cruise can be seen riding a horse in the desert, showcasing the dynamic range of the Mission: Impossible series.

McQuarrie expresses his enthusiasm for filming in Abu Dhabi, praising the support received from local crews and authorities. The grand scale of the location allowed them to create a more expansive and global film, fulfilling their dream of capturing a desert sequence. The complex nature of these scenes requires exceptional skill and coordination from Cruise, making them all the more impressive.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One marks the third collaboration between McQuarrie and Cruise, following the success of Rogue Nation and Fallout. The film features a stellar cast, including Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Pom Klementieff, and Esai Morales. Dead Reckoning Part One is set to release on July 12, with Dead Reckoning Part Two following on June 28, 2024. Prepare to be thrilled by these extraordinary action-packed adventures in the Mission: Impossible franchise.
