Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation – Stunt Featurette

We have to take our hats off to Tom Cruise.  The man sure does put the effort into his action sequences.  For “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” he will hang onto the side of a transport aircraft, for real, as it ascends into the sky.  Check out the video above hyping this feats.  But that is not the only ballsy stunt.

Speaking with Yahoo recently, the actor has revealed that the film contains what was a far more harrowing stunt for him – one he’s wanted to do for a long time. Cruise explains it thus:

“We have something I’ve always wanted to do: an underwater sequence without cuts. The kind of training I had to do for that was pretty intense. I’ve done a lot of underwater scenes but I’ve never done one [like this] that will get the audience to lean forward and have a visceral reaction.”

When Cruise says a stunt is for real, he usually means it.  Sounds good.  The Christopher McQuarrie-directed “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” is slated to hit cinemas on July 31st.
