How many windows does Tom Cruise need to leap from to impress you? He’ll do it. How about planes climbed between, on a single rope, film insurance policies be damned? He’s on it. The new and first full trailer for Mission: Impossible - Fallout is a showcase for Cruise’s stunt behaviors and the plots that get him there, all in service of creating some of the best popcorn cinema coming out.
Just take a look for yourself:
We get a glimpse of the much-ballyhooed skydiving scene, some motorcycle antics, the incredible Rebecca Ferguson, and lines and lines of delightfully creepy monologuing from Sean Harris. We also get to watch the massive Henry Cavill use his body like a piece of construction machinery against the smaller Cruise.
The comic relief acknowledges the team has never had a good or safe idea while the main players grapple, roll, and run like their audience is the protagonist for Crank and can’t ever let their heart rates dip below “blood-pounding.” It’s an exciting trailer, which is hard to believe for a film that has a finality to its themes in a way reminiscent of recent James Bond movies.
We’ll see if Ethan Hunt makes it through Mission: Impossible - Fallout when it hits theaters on July 27.
