Tom Cruise gets a bad rap these days. Sure, he comes across like a crazy person obsessed with a occult-like group, but there was once a time when he was considered the biggest star in the world.
If you won’t believe us, just think Risky Business, Top Gun, The Color of Money, Cocktail, Rain Man, Born on the Fourth of July, A Few Good Men, The Firm,Mission Impossible 1, 2, 3, and Ghost Protocol, Jerry Maguire, Magnolia, Minority Report, Collateral, Oblivion, or Edge of Tomorrow – it’s obvious that Cruise was (and still is) one of the most compelling and dynamic movie stars of all time.
And he’s proving that once again with Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, which is the fifth entry in the action-spy series, as a brand-new featurette explaining how the trailer’s signature stunt, Cruise hanging on the outside of an airplane taking off, was done. It turns out the secret to doing that was having Tom Cruise hang on the outside of an airplane while it was taking off. Why? Because Tom insisted on it.
Tom Cruise is still the greatest movie star in the world. All other arguments are invalid.
