This is the Amount Tom Cruise’s Stunt Insurance Will Cover

CINEMA NEWS + One of Tom Cruise’s trademarks is that he performs the stunts in his films himself, which become more and more reckless from production to production. At the beginning, the studio bosses were tearing their hair out, since the existence of the entire film could be endangered if the star was injured or even lost his life during filming.


Then the math won: Cruise‘s movies bring in so much revenue – the Mission: Impossible franchise has so far grossed $3.5 billion – that the risk is worth it, moreover, Hollywood’s biggest action star prepares so thoroughly for each stunt that he breaks his ankle at most when jumping from one rooftop to another. (This happened five years ago on the set of Mission: Impossible – Aftermath.)

This is all well and good, but it begs the question: how much does it cost to insure a Cruise if the risk is so high? Newsweek tried to find out about this, especially considering that in Cruise‘s new movie, Mission: Impossible Showdown First Part, he performs a stunt that has never been seen before, and is of course life-threatening. The news magazine interviewed Marc Federman of San Francisco’s Epic Insurance Brokers & He approached one of the managers of Consultants, who has been dealing with insurance matters for Hollywood films for decades. The specialist could not say the exact amount, as it is a business secret, but he undertook an estimate anyway. As he said, securing the crew of a film is usually 3 percent of the budget. Mission: Impossible Showdown Part One cost $291 million to make, so the insurance is $9.7 million. According to Federman, it’s clear that Cruise’s insurance accounts for a “significant part” of said amount, meaning it’s several million dollars, especially when you consider that the star is also the film’s producer.

The first reviews of Mission: Impossible Showdown Part One are very favorable, the film has a score of 96 percent on the Rottentomatoes review portal. According to industry estimates, together with the second part to be seen next year, the total revenue could be around 1.5 billion dollars, with which the franchise could cross the dream limit of 5 billion dollars.
