Tom Cruise sits on speeding train for 'Mission: Impossible' stunt. Passing Norwegian motorists freak out.
Tom Cruise's train-traveling style for "Mission: Impossible VII" is causing some serious double-takes in Norway.
TikTok user Tomas Haugland Spangelo posted a wild video of Cruise sitting and balancing on top of a speeding Norwegian train, shot from a car traveling on a road adjacent to the tracks.
At one point Cruise, 58, smiles and waves with his feet dangling over the side of the moving train and his hair blowing, as the the car passengers howl with glee.
"It is he sitting there," Spangelo wrote in all caps below the TikTok video in Norwegian.
The seventh in Cruise's action spy "Mission: Impossible" franchise, which halted filming in February due to the coronavirus, resumed production in September and is already making an impact long before its Nov. 19, 2021, release date.
Cruise has scaled the top of Dubai's Burj Khalifa skyscraper and soared on the side of a flying A400 military aircraft in past "Mission: Impossible" stunts.

The Norwegian train stunt allowed for onlookers to check outCruise preparing to step in as spy Ethan Hunt once again, with a backdrop of the stunning Romsdal mountains.
"Sometimes you’re just in the right place at the right time," wrote Instagram user fotokjerring76 for another video, shot from a moving car, of a standing Cruise preparing for the dramatic scene on the moving train. The film crew, with cameras strapped to the train, is visible.
"M:I 7" director Christopher McQuarrie posted a visualization of the scene atop the train on Instagram, adding a flying helicopter to the background.
"Norway’s scale and beauty have left an indelible and defining imprint on our film and reminded us that anything is possible," McQuarrie wrote, thanking various Norwegian film groups and The Norwegian Railway Museum.
"Most of all, we give thanks to the warm and welcoming people of Norway. Your kindness and consideration are nothing less than an inspiration. We’ll miss you dearly and look forward to seeing you again," McQuarrie wrote.
He added a heads-up for the next European filming stop. There will be wild scenes to come.
"Buckle up, Roma. Here we come," McQuarrie wrote.
