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.
