According to the website WJLA, the leading actor of Hollywood appeared to miscarry his stunt in London on Sunday, which was captured by a WENN photographer. In a video footage obtained by TMZ, Cruise appeared to perform his building to building jump but unfortunately hit the wall and left hanging in midair for few moments.

The jump was short but it seems like age has taken its heavy toll on his stunt work. Climbing up the wall and getting back on his feet, he was seen shambling and then collapsed onto the rooftop in front of the crew.

Historical stunts for previous installments of Mission: Impossible

In 2011, a death-defying stunt by Cruise held the audience, when he jumped onto the top of Dubai's tallest building - Burj Khalifa Tower. In 2015, Cruise as Ethan Hunts turned the movie’s initial sequence as one of the main selling points for the film by performing a perilous stunt. The scene featured Cruise hanging onto an Airbus 400 as it taxies down a runway and then takes off, which later became the main source for film’s marketing. According to an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Robert Elswit, the film’s director of photography said: “It’s pretty damn crazy”.
