'Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation' Star Tom Cruise Reveals He Was 'Scared S***less' In Behind-The-Scenes Footage (VIDEO)

If you thought those shots of Tom Cruise hanging off the side of a moving aeroplane were impressive, check out this behind-the-scenes footage of the star preparing for the stunt that saw him clinging on to the Airbus A400M as it soared to a jaw-dropping 5,000 feet.

Watch the video above...

In our special featurette, Tom - who is returning in the fifth film of the series - admits he had a sleepless night before filming the sequence, and he was actually "scared s***less" when he felt the gust of the wind hit him.

'Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation' sees Tom star again as special agent Ethan Hunt, reunited with Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames, and with newcomers Rebecca Ferguson (The White Queen) and Alec Baldwin.

Here's some blurb on the film...

With the IMF disbanded, and Ethan (Cruise) out in the cold, the team now faces off against a network of highly skilled special agents, the Syndicate. These highly trained operatives are hellbent on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation, as the group faces their most impossible mission yet.

'Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation' is released in cinemas 30 July 2015. Watch the trailer below...
