Tom Cruise Takes Flight in 'Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation' Teaser Trailer (Video)

Ethan Hunt clearly needs a better travel agent.

Tom Cruise appears to be out of frequent flier miles in the first trailer for the forthcoming action film Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.

The fifth installment in the Paramount franchise centers on spy Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team spanning the globe to track down a nefarious rogue syndicate. 

"The syndicate is real — a rogue nation trained to do what we do," Ethan says in the spot, which aired Sunday during NCAA basketball coverage. 

The trailer's must-see scene comes at the end, with Cruise clinging to the side of a jet as it ascends into the air. 

The film was directed by Christopher McQuarrie and also stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson

Paramount releases the film July 31, with a full trailer and poster set to debut Monday. The TV spot can be seen below.
