The final insane stunt in “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” finds Tom Cruise dangling from the side of Norway’s iconic Preikestolen, also known as Pulpit Rock. The cliff is one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions, so naturally Cruise and “Fallout” director Christopher McQuarrie turned it into the film’s last thrilling locale. In a brilliant marketing move, Paramount decided to honor the location by throwing a Norway screening of “Fallout” 2,000 feet in the air atop Pulpit Rock.

Cruise marked the screening with a jaw-dropping photo of the event posted on his Twitter page. Cruise accompanied the post with the caption: “2,000 feet, 2,000 people, 4 hours of hiking. The most impossible screening of ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout.’ Thank you all for coming! I wish I could have been there.”

“Mission: Impossible – Fallout” has earned the best reviews of the franchise, with IndieWire’s David Ehrlich praising the film as one of the best action movies of the decade. The film broke franchise records (unadjusted for inflation) when it opened to $61.5 million.
