Sunday, Feb. 4 may have been a good night for the Eagles fans but a bad night for Patriots fans.
However, no matter what fan you are it sure was a great night for “Mission Impossible” movie fans since Paramount Picture released the first trailer for the 6th installment for Tom Cruise’s anticipated next mission, “Mission Impossible: Fallout.”
The other night, I saw a lot of good previews during the big game but as a die hard “Mission Impossible” fan this was my favorite one to watch and got me very excited for its July 27 release date.
As we all know by watching the trailer, this is not Tom Cruise’s first mission as the iconic Ethan Hunt.
When the trailer opens up, we see actor Sean Harris returning as “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” villain Soloman Lane say to Ethan Hunt in the trailer “Your mission, should you choose to accept it? I wonder would you ever choose not to?”
He then warns him that end he also feared his entire life is coming only for this time there will be the blood on Ethan Hunt’s hands.
As the screen displays the Paramount and Skydance logo we are thinking to ourselves, “what will happen in the 6th installment of the Mission Impossible series?”
This next installment is going to be about Ethan Hunt and his small IMF team, and they will have to battle in a race against time after a mission gone wrong.
We will soon find out what the mission is when the film is released, however it also shows that whoever Ethan Hunt maybe up against in the next installment could be the CIA along with the United States Government.
This action movie franchise has been very successful when the first film was released Memorial Day Weekend of 1996. After seeing the 5th installment “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” three times at the movies in the Summer of 2015, I thought that movie was Tom Cruise’s finest mission yet.
I have extremely high hopes that “Fallout” will be the most exciting and up to date mission that we will see in theaters this summer. “Mission Impossible: Fallout” will also star returning members Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn.
Alec Baldwin will also be returning as CIA Director Alan Hunley and also welcoming on for this mission Henry Cavill who is Superman in the DC Comics Universe and he could be the movie’s villain. Angela Basset will also be in the movie as Michelle Monaghan returning to the franchise as Ethan’s wife who is supposed to be dead but she is really not.
This is the latest mission, should we as movie goers choose to accept it? I know I will be accepting this mission on the biggest IMAX Screen “Mission Impossible: Fallout” is showing on when the film is released on July 27th.
I have high hopes it’s going to be a major success with the reviews and also at the box office. July 27th can’t come soon enough to see Tom Cruise doing what he does best on the big screen in any fun action movie.
