'The Mummy' Featurette Reveals the Difficulty of Shooting in Zero Gravity

'The Mummy' Featurette Reveals the Difficulty of Shooting in Zero Gravity
From Slashfilm - March 20, 2017

Anyone who loves Tom Cruise knows that the actor cant help but tackle some kind of crazy new stunt for his blockbuster action movies. Theyve become a staple of the Mission: Impossible franchise, and now hes bringing that same spectacle to The Mummy.

In the new action adventure tentpole that will mark the beginning of a Universal Monsters cinematic universe, there will be a zero gravity action sequence that takes place in a cargo plane. Weve already gotten a taste of this sequence in the first trailer for The Mummy and the featurette that arrived shortly thereafter. Now a new behind the scenes video gives us a closer look at The Mummy zero gravity stunt.

Its a short featurette, but seeing how the crew dresses the plane for the scene is an interesting tidbit. Even more fascinating is seeing the rest of the crew (including the cameraman and the guy holding on to him so he doesnt float erratically) trying to do their job while Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis fly around in front of them.
