Tom Cruise Performs Own Stunts In MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5!

Tom Cruise is one hell of an action star. Aside from his already obvious movie-star good looks, wit and charm, he also performs his own stunts, just like Jackie Chan. And his latest stunt in the upcoming addition to the Mission Impossible franchise might be his most dangerous one yet!





Mission Impossible 5 is scheduled to be shown a year from now. And in it, you will see Ethan Hunt clinging for dear life outside an Airbus A400M as it flies five thousand feet in the air and yup, you guessed it, that’s Tom Cruise himself standing outside the plane. No stuntmen and wearing only two safety harnesses. How he’s not having a heart attack out there during filming is very impressive indeed, and also extremely deadly.

Aside from this death-seducing stunt, Tom Cruise also performed his own stunts in his other Mission Impossible films, like that scene where he scaled and ran down the side of the Burj Khalifa at Dubai in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and his memorable free-climbing scene at the beginning of Mission Impossible 2. You’ve got to hand it to Mr. Cruise for going beyond what any action movie star would do.

Mission Impossible 5 will be directed by Chris McQuarrie. Cast includes: Tom Cruise (“Edge of Tomorrow”), Simon Pegg (“Stark Trek Into Darkness”), Jeremy Renner (“Avengers: Age of Ultron”), Ving Rhames (“Pulp Fiction”), Alec Baldwin (“Hunt for Red October”) and Rebecca Ferguson (“The White Queen”).

Mission Impossible 5 hits the big screen on Christmas Day, 2015!
