Tom Cruise is ready to come full circle as super spy Ethan Hunt in the much anticipated sixth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, Mission: Impossible – Fallout. The new trailer has finally arrived and its explosive visuals and death defying set pieces promise a cinematic experience that will push your adrenal gland into overdrive.
Check out the full trailer below:
Here’s the synopsis:
When an IMF mission ends badly, the world suddenly faces dire consequences. Feeling responsible for the fallout, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) personally takes it upon himself to complete the mission, but the CIA begins to question his loyalty and his motives. Finding himself in a race against time, while being pursued by a host of ruthless assassins, Ethan will have to use every bit of his considerable willpower to complete the mission and stop a global catastrophe.
Action’s the name of the game with Mission: Impossible – Fallout and this new trailer is packed to the brim with it.
Motorcycle chases, gun fights, close quarter combat, and one hell of a helicopter ride promise what could very well be the ultimate spy thriller. Tom Cruise has been portraying Ethan Hunt for twenty-two years now and he really wants to do this sixth installment of the franchise right. It’s go big or go home here and he’s leaving all of his cards on the table with this one.
Narratively this film is going right back to the beginning and again pitting Cruise’s Hunt up against the CIA just like he did back in 1996’s Mission: Impossible. Except this time he’ll have to contend with ally turned adversary August Walker (Henry Cavill) a lethal black ops assassin who has been tasked to keep Hunt and the IMF in-line or eliminate them if they pose a threat.
Mixed into this is Rebecca Ferguson’s Ilsa Faust who begins to question just how rationale Hunt is and this will no-doubt lead to some heavy drama. Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames are also back as hacker odd-couple Benji Dunn and Luther Stickell, and anytime you know these two are on-screen it’s going to be good.
From the first trailer to the recent behind-the-scenes look at the title sequence, director Christopher McQuarrie has slowly been offering an insight into the latest installment of the franchise. What he showcases is a film that appears to be the best representation of the what the Mission: Impossible franchise is along with seriously upping the ante for the character of Ethan Hunt and fans of the character. Everything in Fallout is laid out on the line for Hunt and there’s no place for any kind of mistakes. he’s playing for keeps this time and the intensity really mounts up quickly.
This intensity is especially seen in the film’s full on action sequences which come rushing at you and don’t ease up for a second. From a high speed motorcycle chase through the streets of Paris to a brutal fight scene of Cruise and Cavill going mano-o-mano on the top of a mountain which leads to one hell of a fall. The action just ramps up second by second and this can only be good for film fans.
The new trailer for Mission: Impossible – Fallout really got me amped and I certainly was blown away by the action that unfolded before me. Check out my full reaction trailer below and let me know what you thought it:
