Tom Cruise is still alive and well, and living the highlife somewhere in California as he awaits the theatrical debut of his latest action-packed sequel Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. But, as a new featurette proves, just one wrong move or split second decision gone wrong could have twisted this happy-ending scenario in the opposite direction. A sneak peek at the stunts seen in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation proves that Tom Cruise went to the edge of death in bringing Ethan Hunt back to the big screen. And that makes for one of the most breathless, jaw-dropping action spectacles of the summer!

The story of Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation follows Ethan and his team as they take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate - an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF. Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol stars Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames return as Brandt and Luther Stickell, with new cast members joining the Mission: Impossible franchise such as Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, America Olivo, Sean Harris, Jingchu Zhang and Simon McBurney.

Take a look at this epic preview, which shows how Tom Cruise and his co-stars did all of their own stunts for the movie. It's all real! We get to see the iconic actor almost kill himself in a madrid of ways. He slides off the slanted roof of a very tall building, gets involved in a practical car chase than sends the automobile flying backwards into traffic, and possibly most amazing of all, the actor clings to the side of a real airplane as it takes flight. How did he ever survive? It's all answered here in this awesome footage. Take a look, and then get in line! This is going to be a blockbuster hit!
