Tom Cruise injured in Mission Impossible stunt

Tom Cruise was injured during a stunt for "Mission: Impossible 6" when he jumped from rigging on to a building but appeared to miss his mark.

In a video obtained by TMZ, the actor is harnessed to cables to keep him aloft, and can be seen leaping from the top of one building to another. Cruise then pulls himself up the side of the building, attempting to continue the action, but he quickly stops as he limps a few steps, momentarily dropping to his knees next to the camera crew. 13, the 55-year-old actor was performing a stunt where he attempted to jump off a scaffolding onto an adjacent building, but it seems like he didn't measure the jump correctly. In the last Mission Impossible film, he was filmed hanging from a plane.

In the footage, the impact looks serious and, once delivered by wire to the roof, Cruise limps away, unsteady on his feet.

He is reprising his role as U.S. government operative Ethan Hun, and is continuing his policy of doing his own stunts. The upcoming film's producer, David Ellison, stated that Cruise began training right after the release of Rogue Nation.

"I've trained for 30 years doing things like this", he said back in 2013 on The Graham Norton Show. "It's gonna be mind-blowing".

The extent of the injuries Cruise sustained this weekend isn't clear at the time of writing, but by the looks of the video, he suffered quite a bit of pain.
