If there is one thing that Tom Cruise and the Mission: Impossible franchise has brought us it’s spectacular stunts and the latest offering, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is no exception. As the new behind-the-scenes feature shows, the centre piece of this movie is a breathtaking climb up the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai, which at approximately 2,723 feet tall makes it the tallest building in the world.
This doesn’t seem to phase Tom Cruise though as we see him swinging around on his safety ropes and harness. We also see the Oscar-Winning filmmaker Brad Bird, well known for such films as The Incredibles and Ratatouille, making his live action directorial debut.
