Paramount Pictures International showcased mind-blowing motorcycle stunts in the upcoming “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” via a featurette YouTube video recently. What could fans expect? Read on for more details.
Make no mistake, Paramount Pictures International said that the stunts in the latest “Mission Impossible” installment were literally real. Fans would definitely see life and death tricks, from riders running through highways packed with cars and trailer trucks, crashes at the back of a car after trying to shoot Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) to motorcycle chases in suburban communities, highways, and deserts.
“I feel fortunate ‘coz I get to work with the best bikes so that we could do very extreme things. We’re not doing a lot of CGI, we don’t have a lot of stunt people do this,” Tom Cruise said.
The “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” had a scene where a stuntman on a motorbike crashed against one of the Atlas Mountains’ road concrete blocks and fell. And according to one of the members of the production team, they “got totally legit thousand feet drops.” Mind-blowing!
“We crashed them on purpose and rebuilt them and crashed them again. There are fighter jets. Unreal,” second unit director Gregg Smrz said.
These are no ordinary feat! And fans are definitely going to experience the impossible. It seems there is only one reason why this is Cruise’s killer movie: the ridiculous stunts.
