"I know that all the big stars hate me to say this, but I don't want to risk 80 peoples' jobs just to say I got big huevos on The Tonight Show," Trejo told Yahoo Movies.
With the past two films in the Mission: Impossible franchise — 2011’s Ghost Protocol and 2015’s Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise has upped the insane-stunt ante. Rogue Nation’s opening sequence memorably featured the star hanging off an airborne plane, a stunt that, by his own admission, was his most dangerous to date. Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie recently spoke to Empire‘s podcast about trying to top that Rogue Nation opener.
Tom Cruise has announced the first trailer for 2017’s horror spectacular ‘The Mummy’ will be released on Sunday.

Cobie Smulders was not in the first Jack Reacher movie, but she’s already looking like a highlight of the upcoming sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The How I Met Your Mother/Avengers actress plays Susan Turner, the commanding officer of the titular vigilante’s old unit in the Army Military Police Corps. In the exclusive clip above, Turner ain’t taking no mess from Reacher (Tom Cruise), even as he turns up to bust her out of military lockdown.
The toy brick slingers have assembled an expansive and adorable cast of favorite cinematic characters, many of whom have never been Lego-fied before — E.T., Tom Cruise, and the Goonies, for starters — to join the existing crew of 'Lego Dimensions.'
Tom Cruise trained to be an astronaut, but the Columbia space shuttle crash put an end to the plans, according to reports. Toni Myers, the director of Imax film ‘Space Station’, made in 2002 and which was narrated by the 'Mission: Impossible’ star, claims that Cruise was given a 'secret’ induction by NASA in Florida, and was taught how to space walk by wading in a water tank. The space shuttle Columbia was returning from its 28th mission in space when it broke apart over Texas in 2003.
It wasn’t just Tom Cruise’s surprise appearance at the BAFTAs this year that got people talking… it was also the appearance of his face. Ruth Davidson, Leader of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party, added: “Tom Cruise’s face.
It’s hard to imagine, but before it spawned four successful sequels spanning a period of almost twenty years (with the latest installment in theatres now), 1996’s “Mission: Impossible” was seemingly just another Hollywood retread of a classic TV show. With Brian DePalma directing, “Chinatown” scribe Robert Towne co-writing and a post-“Interview with the Vampire”/pre-frenzied disregard for home furnishings Tom Cruise in the lead role, “Mission: Impossible” seemed poised to not only honour, but creatively one-up, its small-screen counterpart. Thankfully, capitalizing on that promise, rather than an irony-laden, nostalgic throwback to a classic TV show, audiences were treated to a genuinely fresh, exciting thriller, with a gloriously convoluted plot and suspense sequences that rank amongst the very best.
It wouldn’t be a Tom Cruise movie if his stunt double was doing all the work. Still, Cruise totally topped himself by daring to dangle off an airplane as it took off.
If you’re feeling the need for some speed, then you’re in luck: During the Berlin press day for Terminator Genisys last week, Skydance Productions’ David Ellison and Dana Goldberg provided some intel on the status of the sequel to the 1986 fighter-ace blockbuster Top Gun. “Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now,” said Ellison (via Collider). “He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy have turned into today.
Forget rock climbing, scaling skyscrapers and flying on the wing of a jumbo jet. Tom Cruise’s most breath-taking feat involves not taking a breathing at all. Cruise, the A-list daredevil who’s known for taking on the most death-defying stunts for his movies, told USA Today that the incredible underwater scene that we saw earlier this week in the new Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation trailer was done all in one take, a stunt that required him to defy the normal bounds of the human body.
