- 2,000 fans climbed Pulpit Rock in Norway, a 2,000-foot cliff, for an outdoor viewing of “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” Wednesday night.
- The cliff is the site of one of the movie’s biggest action scenes, though it doubles for a cliff in Kashmir, India in the movie.
“Mission: Impossible” fans aren’t afraid to carry out near-impossible missions of their own.
Paramount Pictures said 2,000 fans climbed to the top of Norway’s 2,000-foot cliff, Pulpit Rock, for an outdoor viewing of “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” on Wednesday at 11 p.m.
Franchise star Tom Cruise, who was not in attendance, tweeted about the event on Thursday, and said “2,000 feet, 2,000 people, 4 hours of hiking. The most impossible screening of #MissionImpossible Fallout. Thank you all for coming! I wish I could have been there.”

The movie was followed by a 2-hour return hike back down the mountain early Thursday morning using flashlights and headlamps.
Paramount said the purpose of the event “was to promote tourism in the region following the filming of Mission: Impossible Fallout in that location.”
The “Mission: Impossible” series is known for its death-defying stunts, and Cruise is known for executing them on his own without a stunt person, including a skydive at 25,000 feet with a broken ankle in the latest movie.
“Fallout” also features a thrilling climax set at Pulpit Rock, although it doubled for a cliff in Kashmir, India in the film.
