In the footage, we can see Cruise leaping off a building and crashing into a wall. "I knew instantly it was broken", Tom said.

With filming on Fallout back underway, a mended Cruise has been on a social media sharing binge. Cruise's Ethan Hunt is featured in one of death-defying scenes as he's holding on the side of a flying helicopter. The film has been titled "Mission Impossible: Fallout". After all, he has that impervious superman image to uphold. We got the shot, it's in the movie.

Before you check it out, we've gotta throw up a quick yellow flag: It's not a blood-and-gore affair, but Cruise's injury is pretty gnarly-looking.

Tom broke his ankle jumping off the top of a building and careened into a neighbouring wall at an awkward angle back in August.

When Norton told him that working on a broken ankle was "nuts", Cruise said, "But we have a release date, so we've got to keep going". Cruise showed the leap from multiple angles, including a side-view that revealed exactly what happened.

A hospital spokeswoman in Nashville, Tennessee says two more victims of the Kentucky high school shooting have been released. "Even though she was 15, she had already decided her career was going to be a labor and delivery nurse", Secret said.

"I was chasing Henry and was meant to hit the side of the wall and pull myself over but the mistake was my foot hitting the wall", the actor explained. See the video above (warning: it's a little painful to watch). Tom Cruise appeared on The Graham Norton Show with co-stars Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill and Simon Pegg to promote his upcoming film Mission: Impossible - Fallout, and brought along some behind-the-scenes footage.

The crowd can be heard gasping as Cruise's ankle bends the wrong way.

"I knew instantly my ankle was broken and I really didn't want to do it again so just got up and carried on with the take".

"Everybody said, when you ran out of the shot, 'Oh, that's so him, '" Pegg joked. It was almost a decade later that the Tom Cruise-led Mission: Impossible feature film would turn the small screen spy series into a hugely-successful cinematic franchise.

As for the plot, McQuarrie was speaking with Empire recently and he said that the title of Fallout was deliberately chosen.
