Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation Header

There’s no denying that Tom Cruise is one of the biggest movies stars ever to walk this little planet we all call home. But what separates him from most other big stars out there is his willingness to take on many of the unbelievable stunts required of the role that he’s playing all by himself.

Many of these wild and crazy stunts have been done in his time playing Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible movie franchise. We saw the biggest of them in 2011’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, in which Cruise actually dangled off the side of the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It was the biggest he’s ever performed, that is. But not anymore. When Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is released on July 31st, that stunt will be surpassed in a big way when moviegoers watch Cruise hanging from the side of a freakin’ airplane as it takes off.

We’ve seen a preview of the stunt in trailers for the movie, and now a new video has been released offering a behind the scenes peek at Cruise being strapped to the side of the plane and hanging on for dear life as it takes off. You can check it out below.

The ad runs at a minute long, and debuted before the release of the full trailer, which drops Monday. We actually get a good deal of info about the plot, as well as some exciting footage of the action in 60 seconds. Hit the jump to check out to see TV spot.

Mission Impossible

Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol had franchise star Tom Cruise dangling 1,700 feet off the ground of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. In the next installment, Mission: Impossible 5, the action star will be clinging to a plane, which according to reports, was 5,000 feet in the air. And yes, all these stunts were performed by the 52-year-old actor.

But if he’s going to be doing all these death-defying stunts, then he’s got to be seen doing it in the right way.

Paramount has just announced that Mission: Impossible 5 will be released in IMAX – no 3D, so you can breath easier. Hit the jump for more.

Most Anticipated Films of 2015 - Avengers: Age Of Ultron Ultron

Every year, thousands of movies hit theater screens around the world and I’m usually only able to catch a handful during their entire theatrical run. Therefore, I have to be pretty damn selective when it comes to what I choose to spend that precious Fandango gift card I received for Christmas on to see. With that in mind, I have assembled a list of the 20 films that are most likely to chip away at the obsidian monolith that is my movie ticket budget.

As you may have already noticed, I took the subheading of this article from a quote often attributed to Terminator 2: Judgment Day: “The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.” I suppose that’s my pretentious way of suggesting that one or more of the films on this list could turn out to be complete wastes of time, but we won’t know for sure until they’re released theatrically in the coming months.

Also, the release dates noted in the article are correct as of press time, but are subject to change.

Read on for my Most Anticipated Films of 2015

Sean Harris in talks to join Mission Impossible 5

Tom Cruise is already shooting Mission: Impossible 5, but its director, Christopher McQuarrie, has yet to find the film’s antagonist. While little is known about the plot, we are learning that Paramount has offered the role of the villain to Sean Harris, according to Deadline.

He may not have the household name status yet, but you have probably seen him in Prometheus, The Borgias, 24 Hour Party People, and Red Riding Trilogy.

Mission: Impossible Ghost: Protocol was a somewhat of a reboot for the film franchise. At first it was once thought that the film would see Tom Cruise pass the torch to his fellow co-star Jeremy Renner, who would launch a new Mission: Impossible franchise. But since the film proved that Cruise is still a viable star, he is signed on to star in Mission: Impossible 5 after all. With him, Renner, and Simon Pegg all set to reprise their respective roles in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed sequel, we can expect to see some fresh faces to star in some new and possibly villainous roles.

Of those faces, Alex Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson are reportedly in talks to appear in the film. Hit the jump to see who they will play.

Christopher McQuarrie Will Direct ‘Mission: Impossible 5’

Christopher McQuarrie says he'll direct Mission: Impossible 5

All it took was one tweet to confirm that Christopher McQuarrie will be directing Tom Cruise in the tentatively titled Mission: Impossible 5. And McQuarrie sent tweet out today.

The director had worked with Cruise in the modest hit Jack Reacher. Since then, there has been much speculation as to whether or not he would work with the actor again. Because of their working relationship on Reacher and the upcoming Edge of Tomorrow, plus the recently shelved Top Gun 2, it makes plenty of sense that McQuarrie be the one to sign on to direct the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, which has spanned almost two decades.

No Surprise: Tom Cruise Reaches Deal To Star In ‘Mission: Impossible 5’

Tom Cruise

In a movie that will shock absolutely no one, Tom Cruise has officially signed on to star in and produce Mission: Impossible 5 movie. The news has been confirmed by Paramount Pictures and co-financier Skydance Productions.

No writer or director have been announced for the project as of yet, but late last year there was speculation that Christopher McQuarrie, the Oscar-winning writer of The Usual Suspects who also wrote and directed the surprisingly good Jack Reacher starring Cruise that was released back in December, would be taking the big job of directing the latest big screen adventure of Cruise’s globe-trotting superspy Ethan Hunt. The series is the second longest-running film franchise based on a television series, Star Trek naturally being the first.

Tom Cruise Travels The World Conceptualizing ‘Mission: Impossible 5’

It may be a while before we see Mission: Impossible 5 head into production, but we will see Tom Cruise emulate the Ethan Hunt character through different films. But that doesn’t mean that the actor hasn’t stopped thinking about how to extend the franchise hit, and since Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol was a hit, there wasn’t any doubt that a fifth film was on the way.

Considering no one has been hired to write the script and Ghost Protocol director Brad Bird said that it was unlikely he would return to direct for a second time, production for Mission: Impossible 5 has stalled. However, each film had a different director, and each had a different take on the threat facing Agent Hunt, so don’t be surprised to hear that someone other than Bird will direct the film.
