Tom Cruise Defies Gravity in 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' Clip (Video)
Tom Cruise looks cool as a flying cucumber as he stands strapped to the outside of the tallest building in the world.
We guess after already starring in three Mission Impossible films, Cruise is not easily scared off by action scenes. Still, it’s pretty impressive to watch the actor, 49, do his own gravity-defying stunts.
In the newly released featurette for Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Cruise is hanging from the exterior of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building in the world. He seems to fly through the air with the greatest of ease, performing Spider-Man-like moves on the side of the building.
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, the fourth film in the franchise, will see the return of Cruise as Ethan Hunt. Ethan and the rest of the I.M.F. team go rogue to clear their organization's name. Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg and Josh Holloway star in the Brad Bird-directed film.
The film will be released internationally before it opens in theaters stateside on Dec 21.
