Tom Cruise injures himself AGAIN filming a stunt for Mission: Impossible 6 just days after returning to set after breaking his ankle

TOM Cruise tripped while carrying out a stunt on the set of Mission: Impossible 6 suffering a minor injury just days after returning to filming following his broken ankle.

The 55-year-old actor stumbled as he prepared to launch himself out of a window while attached to a harness.

He was left grimacing and inspecting the floor during a nervy few moments that had the production team scrambling to make sure he was OK.

Eventually, a member of the crew gave the cameras a thumbs up to indicate Tom wasn't seriously hurt.

Filming on the blockbuster was delayed for seven weeks after Tom broke his ankle in August last year in the same area of London.

Video footage showed Tom crashing into the side of a building after taking a huge leap off some rigging on to a rooftop opposite.

After appearing to misjudge the jump he pulled himself off the rooftop and was seen staggering towards the crew.

A month later, he joked that his initial reaction was to check the mishap had been captured on camera.

He told US network Extra: “I was like, 'We better have been rolling on that’.”

At the time of the accident, a film insider told The Sun Online: “The injury is worse than was at first feared. Tom did serious damage and will need months to recover.

“He is the film’s biggest star and everything revolves around him. The movie’s bosses had no choice other than to postpone the filming.”

Tom left Londoners delighted on Sunday after he was spotted filming more scenes for the film.

He was seen clambering over the rooftops of buildings near Blackfriars bridge and passing city monuments including The Shard as he ran towards a helicopter.

Hundreds of fans took to the streets to watch the scenes unfold, with traffic in the area being halted as the cameras rolled.

Tom looked in good spirits as he got back to work on the film after halting production after an accident.

Tom reprises the role of Ethan Hunt in the latest instalment of the film franchise which also stars Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Vanessa Kirby.

Superman star Henry looks like he may play the bad guy in an unconfirmed role, and was spotted filming a chase scene with leading man Tom while they continue to shoot in the French capital of Paris last year.

Tom’s crash last summer came shortly after the CEO of Skydance Media revealed that he will be performing the “most impressive and unbelievable” stunt of his career.


David Ellison told Collider: “What Tom is doing in this movie I believe will top anything that’s come before. It is absolutely unbelievable—he’s been training for a year.

“It is going to be, I believe, the most impressive and unbelievable thing that Tom Cruise has done in a movie, and he has been working on it since right after Rogue Nation came out .

“It’s gonna be mind-blowing.”
