What I am selling and who I am selling to is the last thing you should be concerned about Ethan.

Did you know?

  • For the scene where Tom Cruise hovers just inches above the ground his head kept hitting the floor. He came up with the idea of putting coins in his shoes in order to balance him out.
  • Tom Cruise's character, Ethan Hunt, never fires a gun in this movie.
  • As an in-joke, when Ethan Hunt logs onto the internet he doesn't type in Usenet, but Crusenet.
  • Brian De Palma originally offered the role of Claire to Juliette Binoche.
  • The scene in which the water tank explodes was shot in two locations. When the tank explodes and Ethan runs out of the restaurant, this was filmed in Paramount studios. But the shot of him running away from the water was shot on the streets of Prague
