For the movie Mission Impossible- Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise sat on the tallest building in the world, and his picture was clicked from a helicopter.
Cruise underwent months of training, but he did not anticipate the heavy crosswinds that he endured at that height. He ended up smashing into the building several times. They spent four days in the Burj, filming an action scene for the movie. A photo of Cruise sitting on top of Burj Khalifa was clicked from a helicopter. A video was released showing Cruise sitting on top of the Burj Khalifa with a yellow helicopter flying above him.
In the Graham Norton Show on BBC America, Cruise spoke about his experience of sitting atop the Burj Khalifa. The photographer Gerald Donovan told Gizmodo that he was up there for about an hour. The helicopter circled several times very close to him as they filmed a 360-degree pan of the actor.
