One of the best things about the Mission: Impossible series — and many Tom Cruise action films, actually — is how dedicated Cruise is to performing as many of his stunts as possible. Directors have grown increasingly reliable on CG to create dangerous stunts, but Cruise likes to keep things real. You can get a taste of that in the latest clip from Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation which features the actor involved in some crazy chase sequences.
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
Corporate synergy at work: IMAX screenings of Terminator Genisys, which is being distributed by Paramount Pictures, will open with a five minute preview of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, also a Paramount release. It’s a smart move! Because c’mon, is anyone who shells out of the big bucks to see Terminator Genisys on the biggest screen possible going to complain about an extended tease of the new Tom Cruise action? Of course not.
No one has ever been shy about putting Tom Cruise’s apparent death wish front and center whenever it’s time to promote a new Mission: Impossible movie. Like with previous entries in the series, most of the chatter surrounding Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has revolved around the myriad of ways the franchise’s leading man put his life on the line for our entertainment. The new trailer puts many of his craziest stunts front and center, including that still-jaw-dropping shot of Cruise clinging to the the side of an airplane as it takes off. The movie’s message is clear: this man almost died for you. Reward him with strong box office receipts.
On the heels of that incredible new Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation trailer, Paramount has just dropped a new TV spot to get you even more excited for the return of Ethan Hunt & Co. As Jeremy Renner’s Brandt says, this might be their last mission (ha, yeah, sure), so Ethan better make it count. Good news: it looks like he totally does.
By now, you’ve probably seen or heard about the crazy scene in Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation where Tom Cruise actually hung outside of a cargo plane as it took off, dangling from the door as it ascended into the sky. It’s pretty nuts, but if you think that’s all that Rogue Nation has to offer, wait until you hear this. Tom Cruise filmed an underwater scene for the movie, where he had to hold his breath for over six minutes...because it’s all one single take.
The new Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation trailer doesn’t offer up anything drastically different from the usual Mission: Impossible movie — Tom Cruise, shadowy government agents, an elegantly dressed woman kicking ass, insane stunts, an improbable task — but it does all those things (and does them all so well), it’s hard to not get excited for the upcoming fifth installment.
Mission: Impossible is a pretty action-packed film. But, for all its action, would you believe that Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hawke never once fires a gun? Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to check out the rest of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on the original Mission: Impossible!
Temperatures are getting warmer, days are getting longer and the movies are getting bigger. Yep, summer is here and it’s brought with it one of the most jam-packed movie schedules in years.

You are going to be spending a lot of time in movie theaters over the next three months. And with that, these are the 25 movies you have to have on your radar this summer. Read this list. Study it.

When the Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation trailer debuted over the weekend everyone — rightfully — got very excited. Tom Cruise is hanging off the side of an actual plane! Audiences weren't the only ones who were excited. Paramount was so bullish on the film, they moved it up from a December release date (where it would've faced stiff competition from Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to July. But, the future wasn't always this rosy for Tom Cruise and the Mission: Impossible franchise. It was only 9 years ago this summer that Paramount essentially fired Cruise from his own franchise, terminated his production deal and ushered him off the lot.
Just yesterday, we got our first real taste of Mission: Impossible 5 via a one-minute teaser trailer, but you should probably hold onto your seats because today brings the full trailer with even more Tom Cruise spy action and intrigue. Officially titled Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, the fifth installment in the franchise sees Ethan Hunt and the crew going up against a team of what are essentially anti-IMF agents, put together to bring Hunt’s organization down.
