For Tom Cruise’s next movie, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, he pulls off a stunt that looks surprisingly real. That’s because it is real!
Cruise actually was strapped to the fuselage Airbus A400M cargo plane to get this once in a lifetime shot. Only he didn’t do it once, he did it eight times!
Cruise, a certified pilot, was terrified of doing this stunt. He couldn’t sleep the night before, and feared for his life as the aircraft accelerated down the runway into the clear blue sky. The jumbo, four engine turbo prop circled around to land with him still holding on.
The scene is for the movie Mission Impossible, Rogue Nation, which opens in theatres at the end of the month.
