Dubai high life for actor Cruise
Actor Tom Cruise has literally reached a pinnacle of his career in Dubai - dangling from the world's tallest building.
The Hollywood star was spotted tethered to a line near the top of the almost half a mile-high (828m) Burj Khalifa during stunt filming for the latest instalment of the Mission: Impossible series.
Local media reports included photos of the black-clad Cruise as he strode over the front of the glass-and-steel spire on Monday.
The new film, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, will prominently feature scenes from Dubai as well as Moscow and Vancouver. It is scheduled for release in December 2011.
