Despite his high-wire heroics, his typically well coiffed quiff remained intact during his rooftop stunt.

While most of the details of the plot of the latest film have been kept tightly under wraps, Skydance Media CEO David Ellison revealed that Tom will be performing the biggest stunt sequence of his career in the film.

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 [in 2015]. It’s gonna be mind-blowing.'

Tom and Henry star in the film alongside a whole host of other big names, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Jeremy Renner and The Crown's Vanessa Kirby.
