Rogue Nation», 7 curiosities about the film with Tom Cruise SparkChronicles

«Rogue nation» is the fifth film in the saga starring Ethan Hunt, in which Tom Cruise continues to refuse stunt doubles in dangerous scenes Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson Paul Fiorelli
And now how do we convince you that it’s all true? That Tom Cruise did he really hold on to the cockpit of an airplane eight times as it took off and reached a kilometer in the air? Yet it is so. The American star recounts: «I’m a pilot too, and among the consultants were the creators of the Airbus A400, the plane we used. Yet when my foot slipped I thought: ‘Hell, what am I doing here?’ Maybe she also thought about his children: «No, they don’t worry, they’re 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 starring Tom Cruise in the role of 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 directed by McQuarrie.
A millionaire streak
“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” grossed $265 million in its opening weekend alone. A great result that had brought it to second place in the box office rankings 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, was ousted from first place. Manager? «Mission: Impossible – Fallout» (2018) which grossed 765. In fourth place is now «Mission: Impossible II» with 565; the fifth is the debut film with 457; in the sixth, with “only” 398 million, chapter number three.
At the last breath
For the scene in which Agent Hunt descends without tanks into an underwater pipeline, 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 most difficult scene of my life.”
From Sweden with love
Yet there are those who manage to steal the show from Cruise. It’s 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 her own devious ally and performs fight choreography that cost her six months of training.
A jump of 22 meters
Ferguson herself accompanies Cruise in the other scene that required a long specific preparation, the one in which the two launch themselves from the roof of the Vienna Opera: a 22-metre fall. Hug yourself.
A two-headed monster
Amid 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 argue constantly about who makes the decisions.
The tribute to 007
In one scene we glimpse an Aston Martin DB5, James Bond’s car: a wink at the rival?
