Let the spy games begin. For their latest film, Mission: Impossible—Fallout, both Henry Cavill and Tom Cruise put themselves through intense training to bring some wild and incredible stunts to life. Based on the first two clips released for the film, you can see just how hard they worked to make things look as realistic as possible.
In the newest installment of the long-running franchise, Cruise returns as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, while Cavill joins for the first time as CIA operative August Wilson.
When Hunt and his team are tasked with trying to prevent a global catastrophe, Wilson joins the squad, but Hunt isn’t sure if he can trust him—and the same goes for Wilson when the CIA questions where Hunt’s loyalties lie.
Cavill, who trains in Jiu-Jitsu with famous trainer Roger Gracie, used all of those martial arts skills in his arsenal in an incredible fight scene that’s been featured in the Mission: Impossible trailers. Although the trailer sort of made it look like Cavill and Cruise are fighting each other in the scene, they’re actually teaming up on a common enemy.
Take a look at the wall-breaking, jaw-dropping fight scene:
Wild fight, right? But don’t let that clip totally fool you—Cruise and Cavill’s characters still might be butting heads a bit. This clip of Cavill and Cruise’s characters jumping out of an airplane—which Cruise actually performed over 100 times—shows a little bit of that tension.
