The Royal Navy has launched a new recruitment campaign for the UK’s world-renowned amphibious force, the Royal Marines Commandos. The campaign gives new meaning to the Royal Marines’ long-running line “It’s a state of mind” by showing that to become a Royal Marine, you have to change what you think is possible. The launch film, ‘The Mist’, was created by Engine’s creative agency, WCRS, and shot by multi award-winning director Nicolai Fuglsig along with a team that included Oscar-winning director of photography, Matyas Erdly.

In August 2017, Cruise injured his right leg on the London set during filming. Following his accident, the studio announced it would halt the production for at least nine weeks in order for Cruise’s broken ankle and other injuries to heal, but released a statement saying that they would be keeping the July 2018 release date for the film. The injury resulted in costs of around $80 million for the studio, because they had to pay the cast and crew for the eight-week hiatus so they wouldn’t take another job. However, the injury and subsequent costs were offset by insurance, and did not end up counting against the film’s final budget.

On January 25, 2018, the title was revealed to be Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Filming concluded in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on March 25, 2018. The production in the UAE included filming of a High Altitude Low Opening (HALO) jump scene with Cruise. The scene required Cruise and the crew training on a ground-based vertical wind tunnel, and then using a C-17 military aircraft to make over one hundred jumps from around 25,000 feet (7,600 m) to end up with three takes that McQuarrie wanted for the film. As the scene was to be set near sunset, they could only make one jump a day to try to get each shot.
