Most one-man action franchises in Hollywood have fizzled out for one reason or the other. However Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt is bringing in the moolah and the critical acclaim even after two decades of furious running. However, this time around, Cruise and the team of the latest installment ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ decided to give fans some special treatment that’d be akin to the thrill quotient of the franchise.
Ethan Hunt went on a trip around the world’s most picturesque locations for ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’. So, when the movie opened in Norway, they decided to screen it at the iconic Pulpit Rock.

Tom Cruise has always showcased his fitness level in the ‘Mission: Impossible’ series. So, climbing that cliff must’ve been the best way for people to show that they’re worthy of being fans of the franchise.
Now, if you’re thinking why did the makers chose this particular spot to screen ‘Fallout’ for the Norwegians, there’s a good reason. Spoiler Warning!
‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’s third act happens in Kashmir, which us desis wouldn’t have noticed because all audible mentions of it was cut out by the CBFC. However, since the makers weren’t able to film it in Kashmir for obvious reasons, they converted parts of Norway into Kashmir. And the place where the screening happened is the spot where Hunt and Cavill’s August Walker duked it out to save South-East Asia from extinction.
Watching ‘Fallout’ at one of its most iconic locations was a sweet affair for the fans. So, they shared their experience from Pulpit Rock.

5. That’s wallpaper-worthy!
Pulpit Rock is a steep cliff which rises 604 metres above the Lysefjorden in Norway. Famous for being used by @tomcruise in the @missionimpossible Fallout movie.

‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ is an incredible movie and the pinnacle of practical film-making, thanks to the efforts of Tom Cruise, Christopher McQuarrie and the entire crew. So, it’s great to see them share their experience with the fans in such an inclusive way. If you want to be part of it, you can either travel all the way to Norway or you can just stroll to your nearest theater and watch Ethan Hunt save the world.
