CinemaCon 2018

written by Jasper XXVI.IV

Henry attended this year’s CinemaCon with co-stars, Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, and Angela Bassett yesterday. Mission: Impossible – Fallout was one of the highlights of Paramount Pictures presentation for Summer 2018. The cast also took the stage and discussed the film, including the death-defying scene of Tom Cruise’s character, Ethan Hunt, that required 106 takes!

“It took a year to figure this sequence out,” Cruise told the Las Vegas crowd Wednesday, before screening the footage.

The scene involves Ethan Hunt and CIA agent August Walker (Henry Cavill) as they skydive into a lightning storm above Paris. Mid-jump, they are struck by lightening and Hunt must catch Walker, who is rendered unconscious, and resuscitate him mid-air.

“I felt like I was in Top Gun,” Cavill said of filming the high-altitude jump.

To rehearse the sequence, the crew built what they say is the largest wind tunnel in the world.

“We had to decide how much we could do that is physically possible without killing Tom,” said Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie.

You can read more details over at The Hollywood Reporter. Anyhow, I have also updated the gallery with some high-quality photos of Henry at the event.

Update: Added additional HQ photos, including those from the Pioneer of the Year Dinner wherein Tom Cruise was honored. Thanks to my friend, Mouza!
