Thousands of people scaled a cliff in Norway to watch Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Was it worth the eight hour round trip?

Thousands of Mission: Impossible fans hiked, scaled and scrambled up Pulpit Rock in Norway to watch a special presentation of the sixth instalment in the Ethan Hunt saga, ‘Fallout’.

While most promotional screenings take place in cinemas with a fun, gimmicky twist, this screening of the film saw 2,000 fans climb hours to the peak of the cliff which rises 604 metres the Lysefjorden.

The Christopher McQuarrie directed movie – starring Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson and Simon Pegg – is out in cinemas now. But that didn’t stop the couple thousand paying fans to hike 2000ft to watch the film on the set of the climactic finale of ‘Fallout’.

To Cruise gave props to the most dedicated fans, writing on twitter: “2,000 feet, 2,000 people, 4 hours of hiking. The most impossible screening of Fallout. Thank you all for coming! I wish I could have been there.”

Check out pictures from the screening below.

Cruise is well-known for doing his own stunts. Earlier this year, the actor broke his foot whilst filming scenes for the latest Mission: Impossible – Fallout; footage of the break made it into the final cut of the film.
