Tom Cruise has no problem leaping from the world's tallest building for his new "Mission: Impossible" movie.
Yes, that's really Tom Cruise leaping from the world's tallest building.
In stunts that seem insane for those of us who are wary of heights, the "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" star jumps out of the Bhurj Khalifa, a Dubai skyscraper that, at more than 2.700 feet high, is the world's tallest.
It's really Cruise, not a stuntman, leaping from the building and climbing, running and walking up it, a mile and a half in the air. He even looks cool, calm and collected when director Brad Bird asks him to do it again. The classic "Mission: Impossible" music has never fit better.
"Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" opens Dec. 21.
