He took no chances on Saturday as he prepared to film another heartbreaking scene while putting on a face mask to practice his final fight.
The star was dressed all in black as he rehearsed his final scuffle with a stuntman on a train in Norway after production for the blockbuster was relocated from the UK after a five-month hiatus amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cruise – who will repeat his role as Ethan Hunt in the spy film series – was tied to a belt for the scuffle on the roof of a train and had a brief chat with crew members as he prepared to film the scene.
The scenes were shot in the heart of the Norwegian countryside with a vintage-style train recreated as a backdrop and surrounded by numerous scaffolding.
Never shy of facing a challenging stunt, the scene also saw Tom running towards a helicopter as it flew into the sky.
After production for Mission Impossible 7 moved to Norway, it was reported that Cruise rented a ship for £ 500,000 for the film crew to avoid coronavirus-related delays.
Filming was already delayed by five months after COVID-19 spread across Italy, where production was based in March. The release date has been postponed to November 2021.
Sources claimed the movie star hired the Hurtigruten watercraft to film because he was "determined" to avoid further setbacks in the franchise.

& # 39; They are afraid of further delays. Tom is determined not to see any more raids. The studio believes it will get everyone to safety and complete this shoot, ”a source told The Sun.
It was recently claimed that Tom was "exempt from Norway's quarantine rules" when he resumed filming in the Scandinavian country.
The media personality revealed how "excited" he was to start recording the latest edition of the franchise in a phone call with Norwegian Minister of Culture Abid Raja.
Speaking of his return, he said, "It's a beautiful country, I can't wait to go back. Like the entire crew, I'm very excited to be back."
During the call, the minister said Norway was looking forward to having [Tom] back and insisted that the Hollywood star and crew be allowed to shoot in the country without first being quarantined at home, Norwegian publication VG reported.
However, the cast and crew had to pass two tests for coronavirus within 48 hours of landing in Norway, and a series of strict daily health checks were carried out.
Abid added that the film production team would have no contact with anyone who was not on the set.
The films focus on Agent Ethan and are directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who previously worked on Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation in 2015 and Mission: Impossible – Fallout in 2018.
Mission Impossible 7 will be released on November 19, 2021.
