The Mission Impossible franchise films are popular for their death-defying stunts and action sequences. However, it’s not possible for the makers to include each and every scene shot in the final cut. The latest MI installment “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” is no exception.
Entertainment Tonight has revealed a deleted scene from Mission: Impossible – Fallout that features Tom Cruise and co-star Henry Cavill performing a death-defying stunt as they enter the Grand Palais in Paris. The scene in question takes place in the film just after Cruise’s HALO jump.
Notably, the video clip has director Christopher McQuarrie’s commentary in the background explaining why he has decided to include the particular stunt scene in Mission: Impossible – Fallout digital release. McQuarrie explained in the video that while he is not a firm believer of adding deleted scenes in film’s home release, he’s made an exception this time for the fantastic stunt sequence cut.
“Every movie ends up with some scenes that have to fall away and you occasionally see DVD extras with deleted scenes or an extended cut,” McQuarrie said. “I am a big believer that the director’s cut, the final cut, is whatever the process has delivered. I don’t really believe in releasing an extended cut. I think the movie is what the movie is. I have never included extras in a disc but there are particular sequences including this one at the Grand Palais which we thought will be really fantastic and wanted to include not as deleted scenes but to just show you the work and effort that goes into developing sequences like this.”
Fans may remember that a shot of this deleted scene was part of the trailer. but it didn’t make it to the final cut. You can check out the Mission: Impossible – Fallout deleted stunt scene below.
Cruise recently revealed on Twitter that the film will be released on Digital HD on November 20 and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on December 4. The film’s home release will include over an hour of exclusive behind-the-scenes footage highlighting the incredible stunts, heart-pounding action and exotic locations on Digital, a 3-disc 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack or a 3-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack.
Thank you to everyone who supported Mission: Impossible Fallout in theaters. We have been working on extras and behind the scenes footage and I’m excited to announce that it will be released on digital on November 20 and Blu-ray on December 4. pic.twitter.com/RY0f3Ro7D0
