AceShowbiz - "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" has so many loyal fans who are willing to risk their lives for the movie. On Wednesday, August 2, about 2,000 people attended the movie's screening, which was held at the top of Pulpit Rock in Norway. Paramount Pictures decided to held the screening at one of locations where the film took place and fans were excited that they could watch the film on top of a 2,000-foot cliff.
According to the studio's representative, the screening tickets were sold out just 20 minutes after they announced it on July 13 in Norway. The fearless fans who got the chance to witness the unforgettable screening then had to hike for two hours before they reached the famous cliff's top and two more hours when the screening was over. They didn't have to hike alone though, as there were guides to help them reach the screening's location.
United International Pictures, who provided the film for the screening, took to Instagram to post a picture of the lucky fans hiking Pulpit Rock. "@TomCruise made an effort for us, so we'll make the effort for him. #MissionPreikestolen #MissionImpossible @MissionImpossible," the caption read.
Unfortunately, Tom Cruise, who is the main actor of the action movie, couldn't join the fans at the breathtaking event. However, Cruise took to his Twitter account to share a picture of the view of the screening's location and thank the audience. "2,000 feet, 2,000 people, 4 hours of hiking. The most impossible screening of #MissionImpossible Fallout," Cruise tweeted. "Thank you all for coming! I wish I could have been there."
The film's fans are not the only ones who risked their lives for the movie as Cruise himself performed extreme actions in the film without a stunt double. He broke his ankle during the shooting of one of the film's scenes where he had to jump from one rooftop to another in London.
"I broke an ankle, so they were concerned with running the film. Even though it's still broken, I went through great rehab," Cruise explained in one of Friday's edition of "This Morning" episodes. "I've been doing this my whole life, climbing on trees, breaking bones." The "Oblivion" actor then told the audience how he flew a helicopter in one of the movie's scenes. "I actually flew the helicopter. Its very dangerous!" he said. "I love flying, I trained for the movie, so I enjoy it."
