The First ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Trailer Is Classic Tom Cruise
You’d think after 5 entries into the Mission: Impossible franchise that things would start getting pretty stale. All of them have Tom Cruise jumping, running, hanging from stuff, and of course, riding on a motorcycle. But somehow, it doesn’t get old. You can attribute this to the top-notch writing, directing, acting, and Cruise doing his own stunts. I still can’t get over that nonchalant picture of him sitting atop the tallest building in the world like it’s no big deal. I don’t even like elevators.
Premise: The best intentions often come back to haunt you. Mission: Impossible – Fallout finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.
You’ll see a part in the trailer where Cruse leaps and grabs the side of a building. He totally wrecked his ankle in that scene, but he got up and kept running. That’s why he makes the big bucks.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout opens on July 27. Check out the action packed trailer below:
