Cruise wows Cine­maCon with look at stunts in new film

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE - By AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS in Las Ve­gas

Tom Cruise re­vealed on Tues­day at a sur­prise ap­pear­ance at Cine­maCon in Las Ve­gas that he ac­tu­ally hung off the side of an air­plane in the film Mission: Im­pos­si­ble— Rogue Na­tion.

The ac­tor says he per­formed the stunt, which in­volved a mas­sive Air­bus A400M tak­ing off and fly­ing to 1,500 me­ters, eight times with a har­ness at­tach­ing him to the air­craft.

Cruise says he was ter­ri­fied through­out, hav­ing to worry about par­ti­cles from the run­way, jet-fuel fumes and even birds.

“I want to keep au­di­ences on the edge of their seats,’’ he says.

Cruise in­tro­duced two new clips from the film as part of Para­mount Pic­tures’ pre­sen­ta­tion to the na­tion’s theater own­ers pre­view­ing its up­com­ing movies.

The first shows Cruise es­cap­ing from cap­tiv­ity with skill­ful mar­tial arts moves along­side Re­becca Fer­gu­son. The sec­ond is a comedic car chase with co-star Simon Pegg in the pas­sen­ger’s seat.

Fer­gu­son and Pegg joined Cruise on stage but nei­ther wore a mi­cro­phone, mak­ing it even more clear that Cruise was the main event. The film is set to open on July 31.
