Tom Cruise has opened up about his injury on the sets of his upcoming film Mission Impossible - Fallout. The actor recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show, where he talked about filming for a stunt during which he broke his ankle. "It's still broken, but I'm doing well. It's not fully healed, but we're shooting," Cruise said. He was accompanied by his co-stars from the film -- Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill, and Simon Pegg. Cruise also shared the footage from the stunt that was captured on set from three different cameras.

"I'm wearing two wires. They're basically just safety wires because I go at a full tilt and I'm sprinting as hard as I can and I hit the side of the wall and that's the stunt," he said. In one shot, it appears he face-planted into the concrete building. However, in the third and the most-disturbing clip, Cruise's foot can be seen slamming at an extreme angle.
"I didn't want to do it again. I knew instantly it was broken," Cruise said. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the sixth installment of the popular franchise will arrive in cinemas on July 27.
