Say what you will about Tom Cruise, he’s one of the biggest action heroes in Hollywood right now. After the roaring success of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and Edge of , Tom is back as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. The fifth installment in the cult series that has spanned 19 years is finally here, and it’s good. You thought Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was impossible to top? Think again. Replete with mind-numbing action and more than a few punches, the trailer has a shirtless Tom Cruise, mountain bike chases, exploding vehicles flying off cliffs, secret underground hideouts and some excellent fisticuffs.
MI 5 will see Tom Cruise reprise his role as an Impossible Missions Force (IMF) agent, with Ving Rhames returning as Luther Stickell. The cast also features Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris and Alec Baldwin. The premise of the film sees the IMF in the crosshairs of the Syndicate, a ragtag team of rogue operatives who form the titular Rogue Nation. Faced with being decommissioned, Ethan Hunt calls in a few favours for his most difficult mission ever- to prove the Syndicate exists and bring them down.
But the biggest highlight of the trailer remains the scene in which Cruise is dangling off an Airbus as it takes off. Sheer awesomeness. Filmed in Vienna, Morocco, Monaco and London, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation looks like it’s all set to take the world by storm!
