In the latest movie, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team take on their most impossible mission yet: eradicating the Syndicate, an international rogue organization out to dismantle the IMF.
Cruise himself has earned more than $100 million in 17 of his 35 movies, and he revealed the secret to his box office success.
"Every day on a movie set you learn. I feel myself to be really a student," Cruise said. "Just when you think you've climbed the mountain, you realize there's another mountain to climb and it never gets boring. I feel very privileged to do what I do."
