Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
The fourth film in the Mission: Impossible film series, "Ghost Protocol" stars Tom Cruise, Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner & Simon Pegg. When a terrorist bombing destroys the Kremlin, the U.S. government initiates a black ops "ghost protocol" and disavows the entire Impossible Mission Force. Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team are to be blamed for the attack, but are allowed to escape as part of a plan to enable them to operate in the dark, outside of their agency. However, Hunt is warned that if any member of his team is captured during their mission, they will be charged as terrorists planning to incite global nuclear war. Ethan is then forced to work with ex-IMF agent Brandt (Renner), who knows more about Hunt and his past than even Hunt himself.

Tom Cruise crashed into the world's tallest building whilst filming 'Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol'

The 49-year-old actor - who plays American agent, Ethan Hunt in the spy series - admitted that whilst filming a flight sequence 2,717 feet off the ground while scaling the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai, he crashed head-first into the building, terrifying the crew.

He said: "There's this bit where I come flying off the building, running perpendicular to it, and then launch myself off it, and there are all these cross winds. In the shot you can see that my feet are kind of separated because I'm using them to hold my body away from the building and then bring my body back into the building to fly.

"I'm looking for certain reference points and I'm thinking 'When the hell do I turn back to the building so I don't go headfirst into it?' I came banging into the building, and I can literally feel the fear emanating from the crew, and I'm like 'No, No, I'm okay, I'm okay."

Tom's co-stat Jeremy Renner is also impressed with his work ethic.

He added to Empire magazine: "His take on it was basically that once you get above 30 feet, if you fall then you're not going to see tomorrow. Above 30 feet, the result is the same. Only difference is that if something does go wrong, you've probably got a chance to make a couple of phone calls on your way down."
