Sorry Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, but Mission: Impossible – Fallout continues to be the must-see event of the summer. Time and time again this franchise has proved its worth, evolving with each installment while bringing eye-popping practical stunts to the forefront, and Fallout looks no less exciting. Paramount has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette that teases a bit more about what to expect from the film, and I personally cannot wait to see what the team has cooked up.
Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote and directed Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, is back writing and directing Fallout, marking the first time a filmmaker has repeated in this franchise. But McQuarrie made clear he wanted to change things up for Fallout and make it feel as if a different director has stepped in, so I’m mighty curious to see how the visual tone shifts from Rogue Nation. Thematically at least, it appears we’re getting something very different as McQuarrie teases a very personal journey for Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt in this featurette.
Check out the Mission: Impossible – Fallout featurette below. The film also stars Henry Cavill, Angela Basset, Vanessa Kirby, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Alec Baldwin. Fallout opens in theaters on July 27th.
The best intentions often come back to haunt you. “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT” finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise – “Top Gun,” “American Made,” “The Mummy”) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin – “Saturday Night Live,” “The Boss Baby,” “Beetlejuice,” Simon Pegg – “Star Trek,” “Ready Player One,” Ving Rhames – “Pulp Fiction,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson – “The Greatest Showman,” ”The Girl on the Train,” Michelle Monaghan – “The Bourne Supremacy,” “The Heartbreak Kid”) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill (“Justice League,” “Man of Steel”), Angela Bassett (“Black Panther,” “American Horror Story”), and Vanessa Kirby (“Me Before You,” “The Crown”) also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie (“Jack Reacher”) returning to the helm.
