THE TATE MOD­ERN SET-PIECE IN MIS­SION: IM­POS­SI­BLE FALL­OUT There were many as­ton­ish­ing stunt se­quences in Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble Fall­out, of­fi­cially this year’s Best Ac­tion Movie™; one which saw Tom Cruise chase a bad­die all the way to the top of the Tate Mod­ern’s chim­ney in Lon­don. In the film, Cruise takes a lift to the top; in re­al­ity, no such lift ex­ists. The film­mak­ers had to con­struct a tem­po­rary lift on the side of the 325-foot chim­ney, with a dizzy­ing lad­der for the Cruiser to clam­ber up at the high­est point. Cruise wore a har­ness while on the roof, later dig­i­tally edited out — but de­spite re­cov­er­ing from a bro­ken an­kle, Cruise still cheer­ily waved at on­look­ers at the gallery’s view­ing plat­form when the stunt was filmed back in Fe­bru­ary.
