Insane Tom Cruise Stunt Highlighted in ‘The Mummy’ Behind the Scenes Video

Tom Cruise, crazy white guy, has become known for risking life and limb to bring some seriously badass sequences to the screen. Cruise is never afraid to do his own stunts in order to ensure that his movies feel as real as possible, and upcoming reboot The Mummy is no exception. In this behind the scenes video released by Universal, Cruise is up to his crazy old tricks.

In order to film a zero gravity sequence, a set was built inside an actual airplane taken 25,000 feet up in the air and into, well, zero gravity. Cruise was on board. Hollywood wackiness ensued.

Check out the vid below and see The Mummy on June 9.

Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (AnnabelleKing ArthurPeaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Russell Crowe and Courtney B. Vance (TV’s “American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson”).

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

The creative team is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan, who have been instrumental in growing some of the most successful franchises of the past several years—with Kurtzman writing or producing entries in the TransformersStar Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and Morgan being the narrative engineer of the Fast & Furious saga as it has experienced explosive growth from its third chapter on. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan.

    Tom Cruise is a white guy? Are we entirely sure of this?

    SJWs would consider this “racist” if it were about a “crazy black guy”.

    Ron Howard used the same technique in Apollo 13. Every shot in which Tom Hanks’, Bill Paxton’s, and Kevin Bacon’s full bodies are seen while in the capsule were filmed in the Zero G plane.

    This movie looks like a big bucket of shit. They must think audiences are airheads who can’t watch a movie without 99 minutes of action crammed into it. Where will the “horror” be? This looks about as scary as the last Mummy remake. Pass

    Tom Cruise is batshit crazy but his stunts are pretty cool. The one he did on the outside of the world’s tallest building in “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” was insane; makes me jittery just thinking about it.
