It was revealed during this morning’s Paramount show at Cinemacon that footage from Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation of Tom Cruise hanging on to a Airbus A400M as it lifts almost a mile into the air is 100% real.  Variety‘s Brent Lang is reporting that Cruise performed the stunt eight times. That’s a very ballsy stunt and full respect to Cruise for manning up, but it almost doesn’t matter because nobody believes anything they see in a movie is real so who cares? If the shot had been CG’ed and green-screened the net effect would be identical. Because, as Werner Herzog famously said seven or eight years ago, “Nobody trusts their eyes any more.”
