Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation Teaser Trailer: Tom Cruise Hangs Off Airplane
The first teaser trailer for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation premiered on Sunday. Watch below!
Tom Cruise returns to the beloved action film franchise as Ethan Hunt. According to the official description, “Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.”
Indeed, the preview shows Cruise’s Ethan breaking free from kidnappers, being told his new enemies are (what else?) “impossible” to defeat, and, of course, pulling off a number of badass stunts. Ethan’s take on the situation? “Desperate times,” he says, “Desperate measures.” Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames, and Simon Pegg are all reprising their roles from previous installments, and are joined by Alec Baldwin, Sean Harris, and Rebecca Ferguson.
In one of the film’s gutsiest scenes, Cruise hangs on to the side of an Airbus A400 as it takes off. “I’ve often sat on airplanes, looked out and thought, ‘What it would be like out there on the wing?’ This is the (stuff) I think about,” he tells USA Today. Of bringing the stunt to life, Cruise says, “That’s me the whole time. I was standing right over the tires when we landed. It’s nerve-racking for everyone else, but pretty exciting for me.”
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation follows 2011’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol as the fifth movie in the highly-successful franchise. It’s slated to hit theaters on July 31. Check out the teaser trailer below, and tell us what you think!
