Hollywood star Tom Cruise returns back in village near Sheffield as Mission Impo...

And it is the end of this action-packed scene that was filmed in Derbyshire, near Sheffield, last August.

A railway line and partial bridge structure were created on field above Stoney Middleton for the shot, with footage taken on the day of filming showing the train as it drops off the end of the track and into the former Darlton Quarry.

Speaking at the time, Peak District photographer Villager Jim, who captured the unforgettable moment, said: “I waited five months for this. What an amazing day.”

Derbyshire photographer Villager Jim captured the dramatic moment the train went over the edge.

Fans say the epic scene appears to be a call back to the series' original movie which debuted in 1996 and saw Hunt, Cruise’s iconic character, fighting on top of a bullet train.

Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One is set to be released in cinemas on July 14, 2023, with the second instalment scheduled for June 28, 2024.
