Tom Cruise trained for an entire year to perform the HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) stunt in this film.
The bathroom fight was meant to be shot in 4 days, but due to the complexity of the fight it ended up being shot over 4 weeks.

The film had 3000 set-ups, 13 helicopters, 6 pregnancies, 5 hiatuses, 4 weeks of aerial photography, 3 continents, 2 winters and 1 broken ankle.
Tom Cruise showed some impressive stunt driving skills during filming. The crew filmed four takes of Cruise making the 180-degree turn while driving the BMW M5 down a half-dozen steps on the streets of Paris. Three of the takes were perfect. In the last 10 degrees of the turn, he had to "turn the steering wheel, step on the clutch, and put the car into first gear in the air." Stunt drivers train their entire lives to do something like that.

In August 2017, Tom Cruise suffered an injury while filming a stunt jumping from one building to another. He was able to grab onto the other building thanks to a harness strapped onto him and to his history of performing his own stunts for action films. However, his ankle fractured upon the impact of the jump. Cruise then got up and attempted to run it off, as this was in the middle of a chase scene, before he and the crew decided to stop filming. Shooting was delayed for eight weeks following the injury. The footage of the stunt used in the film and its trailers just so happens to be the actual injury. To this day, Cruise still refers to this stunt as the easiest of all he's had to do for this film.

The H.A.L.O skydiving sequence (distance of 7 km / 25000 feet, traveling speed of 265 - 320 km/h) was the last sequence filmed during production, but it was the first stunt designed and required a full year of planning out. The crew had only a limited time window of three minutes a day during sunset to film a jump. Because of strict air aviation regulations in France, it could only be shot in the Emirates. It took Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, the skydiving camera operator Craig O'Brien (who was instructed to keep a distance of three feet from Cruise while filming) and others involved a total of 106 jumps to get three possible takes. However, to rehearse the sequence, the crew built a custom oxygen helmet with RAF assistance that can be lit up to see a face, and then also built one of the world's largest wind tunnels for practice. The practice doesn't end there - Cruise and the other persons involved did five skydives a day with one in the morning, three in the afternoon, and one at dusk. Some of the other cast members turned up to visit, with Simon Pegg saying that he and his co-stars thought multiple times that Cruise was seriously about to die: "It is a daily stress going to work with him, because you don't know if you are going to see him tomorrow."

To film the jump, Craig O'Brien used a RED Weapon camera with an IMAX lens (never before used in free fall) strapped to his helmet. O'Brien had to focus the 20 pound camera without looking through the viewfinder. A special device was created that would automatically adjust the focus by calculating the distance traveled as O'Brien moved away from the subject.

Rescuing another person in free fall while sky diving is very difficult. Hewitt says that "it takes Accelerated Free Fall instructors over 1,000 jumps to get it right and something like 70% of the people who try to qualify at the instructor level fail. Tom had just 100 jumps to perfect this."

Simon Pegg got in such good shape while training in the gym for his action scenes that he got eight-pack abs for the first time in 25 years even though it wasn't required for his role at all. The actor is not an action star or known for his body and was teased on set by co-stars Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill, who actually are action stars and regularly show their eight-pack abs in films. They nick-named Pegg 'Eight-Pack Peggles' due to his new found abs. Cruise said, "Six-Pack Peggles I call him! He had an amazing eight-pack going on. He's almost like Eight-Pack Peggles." Pegg responded to the good-natured teasing saying, "To be fair it was a six-pack, it wasn't quite an eight-pack. I think one morning, after training, my abs made an appearance for the first time since I was 23. You have to be in shape to do these movies and I put my mind to it. It's nice to know that I can still show out if I need to. My wife appreciates it!"

Henry Cavill revealed that even being Superman didn't prepare him for the extreme stunts of this film. Cavill noted that his training for Superman is geared more towards body-sculpting for shirtless scenes while stunts require more functional training. He added, "It is a very different kind of preparation for this. For Superman, it is a lot of getting the body looking a certain way when inevitably Superman gets his kit off. But for this, it is not about that. It is about prepping for the stunts, rehearsing the stunts, making sure everything is finessed and going right and I love that. It was a very different approach and I enjoyed it enormously."

It took 2 years to design and plan the "long-line" stunt. It was a team effort with a lot of moving pieces that had to align perfectly. Producer Jake Myers comments that this stunt was even more extreme than when Tom Cruise hung onto the outside of a flying plane in "Rogue Nation" because of variables like wind.

A clause stipulated in Henry Cavill's contract forbade him from shaving his beard required for the role. During production, the producers received a phone call from Justice League producer Charles Roven requesting Cavill back for some reshoots for his role as Superman. Co-producer Jake Myers suggested letting Cavill shave his beard, shutting down production while he does his reshoots and then getting Warner Bros to pay $3 million for additional visual effects (digital moustache) on shots of Cavill after completing his Superman reshoots. Paramount got wind of the idea and shot it down immediately through the clause.

As a result, Henry Cavill was moved up to play Napoleon. Impressed by his replacement and wanting to work with Cavill, he proposed to Christopher McQuarrie to cast him as Agent Walker. It was also Cruise's idea to have Vanessa Kirby cast The White Widow as Cruise was impressed by her work as Princess Margaret in the first two seasons of The Crown (2016).

Curiously absent from the final theatrical cut is the final shot seen in several of the movie's trailers, in which Ethan Hunt appears to be flying a helicopter at ground level directly towards a tractor-trailer. The shot itself is odd, considering the entire final cut of the helicopter sequence takes place in a remote, snow-covered mountainous area, whereas the deleted shot appears to take place directly above a surface road surrounded by a thick canopy of greenery. Another bit from the trailer that was seemingly removed from the final cut was Ethan Hunt swinging on a cable above the rave crowd in Paris.

Allan Hewitt, who used to work with the British Army's Parachute Regiment, organized the team of skydivers who worked with Cruise for the jump sequence. He says that "the biggest risk of being at 25,000 is hypoxia, which is oxygen starvation... When you get hypoxic, you don't know it yourself. You think you're doing well, so it's a very dangerous situation to be in."

One of the reasons composer Lorne Balfe was excited to work on "Fallout" was because Christopher McQuarrie doesn't use temp music when creating his films. "Temp music" is music from another movie or an album used as a placeholder before the movie has been scored. It can be helpful to show the scene's tone, but it doesn't allow as much creative freedom for the composer.

Unless a motorcycle has a windshield, it is impossible to ride faster than 25 - 30 MPH without eye protection, as the impact of the wind on the eyes makes them water excessively, making it very difficult to see anything. In order to get around this when filming, full-eye contact lenses are required such as those used by Tom Cruise for the airplane stunt in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015).

Screenwriter and director Christopher McQuarrie wanted the film's climactic fight scene to take place on the edge of a cliff, but they could not find such a cliff in New Zealand. Eventually the team found Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) in Norway. It was a very difficult place to film due to the extreme weather shifts. One time when the crew was scouting the location, the wind was so strong that they had to crawl to avoid being blown over the edge.

Filming the armored truck chase through the streets of Paris meant that many of the most popular tourist sites in the city would need to be closed. The city allowed the filmmakers control of the Arc de Triomphe for two hours on a Sunday morning starting at 6:00 AM.

The two cars Ethan Hunt is shown driving in the movie are both BMW 5-Series models, albeit near-opposites from one another. The first is a preproduction version of the 2018 BMW M5 (F90), which debuted in spring 2018 and thus had yet to debut publicly when the scene featuring it was filmed in mid-2017. It features true supercar performance and can accelerate to 100kph in under three seconds. The second one, seen in part of the movie's Paris chase scene, is a vintage E28 model from the mid-1980s, presumably used by the characters because of their need for relative inconspicuousness whilst on the run from local police. While its specific badging isn't shown, it is clearly an "average" E28 as opposed to the sportier M5 variant, which featured unique wheels and was sold only in black.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

While Tom Cruise (Ethan Hunt) is famously known for performing his own stunts throughout the franchise, he ups the ante in this installment by performing four elaborate set pieces (mostly without green screens or stunt doubles): a HALO jump, an unusually dangerous variety of High-Altitude Low Opening parachute jumps; a helmet-free motorcycle chase through Paris, including a portion in which Hunt rides against traffic in the circle around the Arc de Triomphe; an extended foot chase across London rooftops, in which Cruise broke his ankle while jumping between two rooftops; and a helicopter chase in which Cruise does most of the piloting.

Christopher McQuarrie's original idea for the opening plutonium exchange sequence was to have one of Ethan's team members killed in action. He initially considered Luther but decided against it admitting that it would not work. Benji was also considered but McQuarrie feared the film will not recover well if he is to be killed off. However, when McQuarrie pitched the idea of William Brandt shot to Jeremy Renner, he turned down saying "he didn't want to take a paycheck for three days and getting blown up", thus having Brandt written out of the script. As an in-cheek joke related to this, Luther and Benji both separately said that "they should have been killed" right after the shootout.

Alec Baldwin found his fight scene with Henry Cavill particularly challenging to execute because of Cavill's sheer size and musculature. Baldwin's comment about the encounter, "I had to do a fight scene with Henry Cavill and Henry Cavill, as everyone knows, plays Superman. Well, he really is Superman. The guy's body is like it's made of marble. When you do fight scenes, you throw these punches, you tussle with the guy and you move him around... he's pretty hard to move around and his shoulders are so big that when they shot my close-up over his shoulder, I asked, could you bend down please because your shoulders are in the way of the shot. He's just so big! But I had a ball working with him."

The "long-line" stunt, where Tom Cruise climbs up a rope dangling from a helicopter and then free-falls onto its payload, was the first stunt sequence filmed in New Zealand. It was incredibly dangerous. The crew had to keep Cruise in a safety harness, but also make sure that he wouldn't get tangled in the line. Cruise surprised the crew by continuing the action once he had climbed up to the helicopter skids.

The first re-encounter between Ethan and Ilsa in the men's washroom was originally very heavy in dialogue. Christopher McQuarrie realized that the written dialogue was dragging against his intention of making the scene lighter, so much of the dialogue was removed.

There are several callbacks to each of the previous installments of the series, most notably - MI1: The White Widow is the daughter of Max, the arms dealer Ethan dealt with to discover Job's identity. Jim Phelps feels mistreated by his government, similar to August Walker in MI6. The opening interrogation of Fallout is also similar in structure to the cold open of the first film. MI2: Ethan also puts his rock climbing skills from the second film to good use in the finale of Fallout. MI3: Julia returning as a supporting character directly links Fallout with the events of the third film. Ghost Protocol: Benji's consistent annoyance on not being able to wear a mask is put to rest in Fallout, as he gets to wear not one, but two of them. Ethan also places hope that the White Widow and John Lark have never met, a similar gamble to his encounter with Sabine Moreau and Wistrom in Dubai. Rogue Nation: The overall plot, and the re-appearance of Alan Hunley, Solomon Lane and Ilsa Faust directly link Fallout to the previous film of the series.
