Movie Fact #800 – March 24th, 2015:

For those who have seen the trailer for 2015’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”, yes that is actor Tom Cruise, who plays the lead character Ethan Hunt, climbing and fighting on the outside of a flying Airbus A400M Atlas took place at RAF Wittering in Cambridgeshire. Cruise performed the sequence, at times suspended on the aircraft 5000 feet in the air, without the use of a stunt double. Safe to say, Cruise is what makes the “Mission: Impossible” series so impossibly good. Five films in and the series is more popular than ever with 2011’s “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol”, the fourth entry in the series, receiving critical acclaim and having the highest box office numbers of the series. This series defines doing the impossible.
