Paramount Wants You To Know - The Stunts Are Real in Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation

Motorcycles and movies are made for each other. It’s adds an instant image to any character and creates a certain tone for any scene.

As discussed in this previous Clutch and Chrome article, Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise is an avid rider and features motorcycles in a big way in Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation.

Most movie-goers have the impression Hollywood safely straps its stars on the back of a trailer when shooting motorcycle scenes. Paramount Pictures wants everyone to know, that’s not the case with the latest chapter of the extremely popular Mission Impossible series.

“The motorcycle stunts are real, just like the plane stunt,” Paramount Pictures International states on their latest ‘behind the scenes’ Youtube release, “Watch Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson race up a mountain.”

As well as some familiar time in the saddle, ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ reunited Cruise with stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. The film also stars Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson and Sean Harris.

Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate, an International rogue organization, as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.

Both in the movies and his real life appearances on two wheels leaves no doubt Tom Cruise leans towards quality, performance motorcycles and for this he has a good ride in the fourth incarnation of Mission impossible with BMW Motorrad.

The S 1000 RR model year 2015 seen in ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ has been completely revised with BMW Motorrad engineers entirely reconceiving the bike's technology, design and fittings since it first rode onto the scene six years ago. This third generation model boasts increased power, a flyline which is razor-sharp and extremely clear, the volume of the contours and shapes perfectly balanced. From the rear to the front section, every trim component has been redesigned, including the headlamp element, where the symmetry has been given greater emphasis.

Clutch and Chrome looks at the power of motorcycles in movies as well as well as the small screen in ‘Motorcycles on the small screen’. Clever title we know.
