Where was Mission: Impossible Fallout filmed? Filming Locations Guide

Posted by

Tom Cruise keeps on pushing his limits creating very dangerous stunts for each new installment of Mission: Impossible. Almost no green screen or special effects are allowed in the spy action film series.

The veteran star is always performing his own stunts: Cruise learned to pilot a helicopter to shoot risky maneuvers with it. The one who jumps out of a plane at a high altitude is him.

  1. This was great, thanks!

  2. I'm desperatly trying to find out the street name where Ilsa is standing on the bridge with the sharpshooting rifle and then drives down the stairs on her motorcycle to follow Ethan on the street below. The same bridge and stairs are seen in a scene of "The Dreamers".

    Anyone knows that filming location? Based the scene just before that one it should be in the vicinity of the Trocadero. (I know films usually don't take geography very seriously, but in The Dreamers, the scene before the one at the bridge with the stairs was also at the Trocadero, making me think it might actually be nearby.

    1. Hey Brandis, I hope you are happy, we found it for you following the lead of an 'église en restauration à Paris' (you can see it at the end of the scene). This way we came across the Saint-Augustin church and your bridge.

    2. May I ask why it was so desperate?

  3. Do you know where the underground scenes were filmed? The part where Alec Baldwin was killed.

    1. A less obvious filming location is the underground spot where the team meets, the vaults of the Pennington Street Warehouse (St Katharine's & Wapping area). Image courtesy of Paramount Pictures and Paul the Archivist - Map

  4. what about the place ... a tree line where ethan and ilsa meet???? ... Movie time 1:15:00

    1. Ethan meets Ilsa later nearby in the Jardin du Palais Royal

  5. Just watched Fallout for the first time last night, and wondered where the fantastic cliffs were (if real at all!) - thanks so much for the info, and the pics. Great site, very useful, so thanks a lot from the UK.

  6. The cliffs are real for sure: Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), Lysefjorden, Norway. It's a well-known tourist attraction that you can visit (for free, of course, this is Scandinavia).

    But, please don't try to do Cruise's stunt if you go there, even though the place in itself is worth the journey. Climbing this cliff most certainly is a "don't attempt to do this at home" situation. The fall, in reality, is much deeper than it seems in the movie and the bottom is as hard as the rest of the rock.

    Still, you should go there and you will never forget - and I'm neither a local nor a Norwegian.
