Watching Tom Cruise perform stunts in UAE is nothing new for Mission Impossible fans. But major shoots of this movie series have taken place in Dubai. We have seen Tom Cruise crawling down the Burj Khalifa of Dubai. Now the upcoming Mission Impossible series trailer is up and we couldn’t miss out on the scenes displaying Tom Cruise shooting in Abu Dhabi. Let’s find out how the capital city of UAE landed a role in this movie!

Mission Impossible Latest Part Displays Scenes Shot In Abu Dhabi

The capital city of the UAE is prominently featured in the Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One trailer. We spotted the Emirate when the trailer was unveiled on May 17.

In the movie’s trailer, which is said to be about IMF agent Ethan Hunt’s (Tom Cruise) finale mission, we can see both the Liwa desert and the Midfield Terminal. Additionally, the actor can be seen riding a motorbike off the edge of a cliff and into a forest.

Abu Dhabi seems to be on the favourite location list of Director Christopher McQuarrie. Why? Because this is the second time he has selected this Emirate to shoot a few sequences of this movie. Lastly, in 2018 the cast & crew of Mission Impossible came to Abu Dhabi to shoot a jump scene for Fallout. Followed by the recent shoot of 2021 where Cruise and crew dropped in to shoot certain shots for the seventh series of the movie.

Fans in the house must be very well aware of the fact that our hero doesn’t prefer a body double for stunts. Famously, Cruise performs his own stunts. This fearless stuntman has done it all, from ascending the Burj Khalifa in Dubai to performing gravity-defying stunts in Abu Dhabi’s Liwa Desert to dangling from aeroplanes. The films also transport you to a variety of fascinating settings. With each film, Cruise’s character Hunt has changed, but his appeal has remained constant. This franchise has built up a devoted following over the years.

The Mission Impossible trailers are out and if you wish to spot this popular Emirate, then go watch the video.
