WASHINGTON – Looking for secret information on the premiere of "Mission: Impossible – Fallout"? You have arrived in the right place. And good news, this post will not destroy itself in a matter of seconds.

The stars of the franchise's sixth episode were exhibited for the US premiere at the National Air and Space Museum. Here are five pieces of information we collected at the event:

1. Tom Cruise's ankle he broke on set is on the mend.

Cruise, who plays in the series as Agent Ethan Hunt of the Impossible Mission Force, told USA TODAY that his ankle is "running really well". He added, "Still healing, but good."

In August of last year, production ceased for the film when [Cruise] Cruise jumped injured from a building's roof and collided with another's wall. He should not reach the next roof his character wanted to land on, Cruise said on Sunday.

"It was a heavy blow and I tried to soften the hit," he said. "I thought, 'Well, I'm just going to touch my foot," and I just left it there too long for a fraction of a second to try to mitigate the effect of the side of the wall. " [19659009] Cruise said he immediately knew he had broken his ankle, but he thought he should finish the shot anyway.

"I was like," It's broken, I know it's broken, just keep going and run past the camera so we have the shot, "he said. "That was the first thing I thought: just go through the shot."

Cruise said his injury did not scare him off doing his own stunts. "If you do things like that, something like that happens," he said simply.

Christopher McQuarrie returning from the fifth episode to direct "Fallout" confirms Cruise's decision. "It would stop being 'Mission Impossible' if he did not do his own stunts, then anyone could do it," he said, joking that the franchise would then be more like "Mission: Offensible Possible."

2. Henry Cavill is not shaken by #Mustachegate.

Cavill's character, August Walker, has facial hair in the film that had to be digitally removed from "Justice League" as the re-shots for the superhero movie intersected with "Fallout" films. Of course, Twitter had a field day with what #Mustachegate was called.

Cavill, who plays Superman, did not expect that there would be such a big reaction.

"People are excited about all sorts of things, just happens to be my mustache this time," he said. If you are wondering if the rogue now makes him more cautious on facial hair, the answer is no.

. 3 Michelle Monaghan and Rebecca Ferguson became good friends during the shoot.

At the premiere, the actresses hugged each other for photos. Monaghan, whose dress had a light green bow at the back, joked with Ferguson in a red dress that the two looked like Christmas. Ferguson jokingly gave her friend a tutorial on how to posed without a double chin and threw her head back and started laughing.

Monaghan poured over her buddy on the carpet. "I think (Ferguson) was one of the best things that came out of this latest movie," she said. "To meet her and be with her, and I now consider her a dear friend."

4. Wolf Blitzer honored his casting.

"It came about because the producers and the director and everyone said, 'You know what, Wolf Blitzer would be good at this scene,'" the journalist recalled as he himself was cast in the film. "They phoned me about my agent, and it took me about a nanosecond to say" yes, of course. "

The host," The Situation Room, "said filming his play in England was" very different. " as his appearance on CNN. "I was thrilled to do it," said Blitzer, who has also appeared in "House of Cards" and "Skyfall."

. 5 Tom Terrific surprised fans.

For the fans who participated in the premiere and thought they would take a selfie with the star of the film, be a "Mission: Impossible", guess again. When the red carpet went out, Cruise surprised the fans by returning to the carpet, posing for photos and signing autographs. This reporter witnessed kisses on the cheek of two lucky fans.

Cruise was not the only actor to visit the crowd: Monaghan and Cavill also spent quite a bit of time with the worshiping public.
