“Rogue Nation” is the fifth film in the saga starring Ethan Hunt, in which Tom Cruise continues to refuse stunts in dangerous scenes Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson Paolo Fiorelli
And now how do we convince you that this is all true? That Tom Cruise Did he really cling to the cockpit of an airplane eight times as it took off and reached a kilometer in height? Yet it is so. Says the American star: «I’m a pilot myself, and among the consultants were the creators of the Airbus A400, the plane we used. Yet when my foot slipped I thought: “To hell with it, what am I doing here?” ». Maybe she also thought of his children: «No, they don’t worry, they are used to seeing me climbing trees and on the roof of the house. Even if this time I went a little higher … ». Here are some curiosities about the fifth chapter of the saga starring Ethan Hunt: “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”.
The trailer
We are at five
With this title, the “Mission: Impossible” saga reaches five chapters in 20 years, all played by Tom Cruise as agent Ethan Hunt and always directed by different directors (in order: Brian De Palma, John Woo, JJ Abrams, Brad Bird and now Christopher McQuarrie). The sixth chapter, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”, was released in theaters in July 2018, again under the direction of McQuarrie.
A millionaire series
“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” grossed $ 265 million in the first weekend of programming alone. A great result that had brought him to the second place in the box office of all the films of the saga with 682 million dollars. It is now in third position, in fact the fourth chapter, “Ghost Protocol” of 2011, with its 695 million dollars, has been ousted from the first place. Manager? “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” (2018) which collected 765. In fourth place there is now “Mission: Impossible II” with 565; the fifth debut film with 457; on the sixth, with “only” 398 million, chapter number three.
At the last breath
For the scene in which Agent Hunt descends without cylinders into an underwater conduit, Cruise trained at a depth of 40 meters with real freediving champions. “The problem was that, instead of saving energy, I had to do an action sequence without breathing for six minutes: the hardest scene of my life.”
From Sweden with love
Yet there are those who manage to steal the show from Cruise. It is about Rebecca Ferguson, Swedish actress with the face of Ingrid Bergman. “I’m the female version of Hunt,” she says. In the film she is one of her ambiguous allies of her and performs in fight choreography that cost her six months of training.
A jump of 22 meters
Just Ferguson accompanies Cruise in the other scene that required a long specific preparation, the one in which the two jump from the roof of the Vienna Opera: a fall of 22 meters. Hug yourself.
A two-headed monster
In between so much action, they bring a laugh Alec Baldwin and Jeremy Renner. The first plays the head of the CIA, the second that of the IMF (“Impossible Mission Force”, the agency to which Ethan Hunt belongs). The two constantly argue about who makes the decisions.
The tribute to 007
In one scene we see an Aston Martin DB5, James Bond’s car: a wink to the rival?
