Entertainment Movies Tom Cruise Barely Hangs On in Latest 'Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation' Trailer (VIDEO) In the air, on land and underwater, Cruise's character somehow keeps on ticking By Tim Nudd Published on June 4, 2015 11:55 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Things are only getting more impossible for Ethan Hunt. Tom Cruise‘s IMF agent character spends a frightening amount of time underwater in the first half of this just-released second trailer for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. But of course he survives, only to find himself frantically hurtling over and through cities and towns in planes, trains and automobiles – with Simon Pegg by his side – always an inch or two from disaster. We also get some grimly dramatic scenes with Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames as they fret over some shady characters known as The Syndicate, who seem bent on taking out the IMF. (The CIA also seems pretty angry at Cruise and company.) RELATED VIDEO: Your first look at Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation And the woman in the gold dress?
