The action scenes of the film rose to a new height in the series. Many stunts and high difficulty movements are completely real shots without using any computer special effects.
"When I was on a plane, I was curious about what it would feel like to be on the wing. And now I have experienced that", said Tom Cruise, who was suspended for more than 20 minutes on a 1500-meter-high plane in the shooting, and only a thin rope was used to connect the actor and the plane.
Jack Ma, chairman of the board of directors of Alibaba Group made an unexpected appearance at the press conference and disclosed the stories behind the scenes with Cruise. Alibaba Pictures was one of the investors of the film.
