The First Full Trailer For ‘Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation’ Proves Tom Cruise Can Still Kick Ass
Fifty-two-year-old Tom Cruise isn’t slowing down, literally or figuratively, in the first full trailer for “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.”
After the actor tweeted a teaser Sunday, Paramount released the first full-length trailer for the film Monday, which features Cruise reprising, for the fifth time, his role as IMF secret agent Ethan Hunt in all of his high-speed, high-altitude ass-kicking glory.
Aside from the standard motorcycle-riding, free-falling stunts Cruise regularly performs for every film, the 52-year-old actor always manages to up his daring game with every film. In 2011’s “Ghost Protocol,” he scaled the side of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa — the tallest building in the world. In “Rogue Nation,” he takes a ride on the outside of a Airbus A400 during takeoff and landing.
“That’s me the whole time. I was standing right over the tires when we landed,” Cruise said in a USA Today report. “It’s nerve-racking for everyone else, but pretty exciting for me.”
Cruise, who regularly performs his own stunts for the films, strapped himself to the outside of the plane with a harness to shoot the scene.
“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” hits theaters July 31.
