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.

Jeremy Renner is known for being a scene-stealer – and now it looks like he might walk away with a whole franchise.
The actor, best known for his Oscar-nominated role in The Hurt Locker, was cast in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol with the intention of possibly taking over for Tom Cruise.
"It's a franchise to potentially take over," Renner told MTV News. "I can't predict the future and what they want, but that's certainly the idea."
