Those stunt guys are from the movie of MI4, right? BTW, that helicopter above i think is too close to the spire of Burj Khalifa...

It's not that close, it's a optical ilusion created by the telephoto lens

Trust me on this - it really was as close as that looks.

I've got video of the thing doing a 360 around the pinnacle, and it damn near gave Cruise a haircut!

Hi all.

I wonder if all the top platform action in the last few days will be in the movie ?

Or is it just an opportunity to go to the top because they're filming lower down on the BK ?

Either way it's grat to see all this top action.


Ray.

Geralds just shot him on top of the spire,, Image will be sold Today and out on the internet friday, papers on Saturday,, probably and exclusive on one UK and US paper..

Video sells to CNN and Sky,, you think it quickly mounts up on the global persepective...

If Tom was to fall,, that 4 figures could go as high as 6 quite quickly..
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...per-Dubai.html

Think he is in print in UK today

Edit,, Should be Sun and Mail either today or tomorrow

The photo you link to is the stuntmen, yes. All the shots being picked up by the papers are of Tom.

Front page of http://www.bild.de this link:

http://www.bild.de/BILD/unterhaltung...ossible-4.html

(for some reason that link is blocked in UAE)
