Christopher McQuarrie Talks Tom Cruise’s Daring Plane Stunt In Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

10 April 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now nearing its fifth installment, Mission: Impossible needs no introduction. But if there was ever an actor to steal the spotlight with ever-more-daring stunts, it’s the series’ leading star and secret agent, Tom Cruise. When the maiden trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation hit the interwebs late last month, one of the main takeaways was the star’s airborne stunt, which sees him hanging off the back of a military cargo plane at 3,000 feet. No biggie, right?

In fact, according to director Christopher McQuarrie – who joins Cruise for the pair’s second collaboration following actioner Jack Reacher – the actor jumped at the chance to top his Burj Khalifa stunt from Ghost Protocol. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, here’s what the filmmaker had to share.

“They brought me this plane, and I was looking at the model,” says McQuarrie. “And I said to Tom, ‘What if you were on the outside of this plane? »

Cruise Performs Laugh-Out-Loud Stunts in MI5 Trailer (with Bonus Teaser)

24 March 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

He Really did that! In an interview with USA Today, Cruise reveals where the dangerous idea came from and how they pulled it off. "I've often sat on airplanes, looked out and thought what it would be like out there on the wing. This is the (stuff) I think about," the 52-year-old says. "That’s me the whole time.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation gets its first trailer and poster

23 March 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Tom Cruise reprises his role of agent Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible sequel, Rogue Nation, this summer, and we couldn't be more stoked. Especially with the film's newly-announced premise.

The Impossible Missions Force (or Imf for short) are up against their “evil twin,” a rogue group of special agents and assassins that do for the bad guys what Hunt, William Brandt (Jeremy Renner), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), and Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) have been doing for years. 

Will the Imf be able to shut down the rogue Syndicate before the Imf are taken out? We’ll have to wait until July 31 to see.

In the meantime, check out the first poster and trailer for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation below! There’s enough Simon Pegg affability to hold you over until the summer.

Tom Cruise Leads An Agency Of Chaos In Full-Length Trailer For Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

23 March 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As promised, Paramount has debuted the first full-length trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and it’s a doozy. Showcasing slick set-pieces, Tom Cruise performing yet more daring stunts and of course, Lalo Schifrin’s indelible theme song, the sizzle reel offers up a brief hint of what we can expect in the upcoming sequel – and yes, those by-now infamous face masks make a return, too.

Speaking about the stunt, Cruise touched upon what is perhaps the film’s flagship set piece: Ethan Hunt hanging from the side of an airbourne plane while a grounded Benji (Simon Pegg) scrambles to unlock the door. According to the veteran daredevil, the cast and crew wanted to perform something that emulated the Burj tower sequence found in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

“I’ve often sat on airplanes, looked out and thought, ‘What it would be like out there on the wing?'” Cruise said. »
