Watch: Tom Cruise Performed the 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' Airplane Stunt Eight Times

Jul 13, 2015

Apparently Tom Cruise isn’t happy with just being a huge movie star. Nope, clearly the 52-year-old actor also wants to be known as one of Hollywood’s greatest stuntmen too. 

We’ve seen Cruise perform all kinds of crazy stunts over the past few years -- the sort of things that would make even grizzled stuntmen a little nervous. However, nothing is likely to top this new imagery of the actor hanging on to the side of an airplane as it cruises at 5,000 feet above the English countryside. That’s just flat-out nuts.

This new video takes you through the stunt, revealing Cruise did eight separate takes of the scene. Oh, and he was scared... but you wouldn't know it by watching the below featurette.

 

The stunt can be seen in the upcoming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, and it's not the only mind-boggling maneuver he pulled off in the film. At some point the actor also holds his breath for six minutes underwater

 

Pretty incredible stuff. And for even more Mission action, check out a trailer for the film below.
