Mission: Don't Fall?

It's been widely reported that Tom Cruise performed his own stunts for the latest installment in the Mission: Impossible series, Ghost Protocol.

But a new video shows the moves are truly death-defying.



In the gasp-inducing sneak peek, Cruise, 49, dangles from a suspension cord and runs up, down and sideways along the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in downtown Dubai, which stretches 2,723 feet (just over half a mile) into the sky.

The scene was filmed using cameras in the building as well as a helicopter crew circling it.

"This is just another day at work on Mission: Impossible," according to director Brad Bird.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol will hit theaters Dec. 21.
