During the premiere of “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” Katie Holmes ex-husband revealed that he already knew what the sequel will be about and has even pitched it to Doug Liman and McQuarrie, the first franchise of the “Edge of Tomorrow “directors”.
In 1996 when Paramount created the first Mission Impossible film, fans of the classic TV series were none too pleased when the makers decidedly killed off the team and turned the film into a “Tom Cruise film”. This movie, as with all of the previous four films in the always high-stakes Mission Impossible franchise, takes the action and excitement to a whole new level.
Did you see Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation this weekend or did Ant-Man tempt you back? It is because of such stunts that Ethan discovers his team is being dismantled by Central Intelligence Agency Chief Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin). And “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” does not disappoint.
Although Rogue Nation is not as fun as the 2011 installment “Ghost Protocol“, it gives the audience a lot to look forward to, especially in giving them a quick tour around the world.
If Cruise’s bombshell does turn out to be true, it will be shortest time between releases of “Mission: Impossible” movies.
The 53-year-old star performs most of these hair-raising stunts himself, allowing writer-director Christopher McQuarrie to capture every pulse-quickening second in thrilling close-up. On one hand it’s nice to have the occasional laugh in a spy thriller, and Rogue Nation excels at that. The case features the usual suspects, Jeremy Renner (Avenger’s “Hawkeye”), Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz, Star Trek), and Ving Rhames. And it was not just good storytelling, but also image-improving as Cruise, at the time, was making headlines for all the wrong reasons. We were there one night and I was like, ‘I’ve got an idea for it.’… The Golden Globe victor, who prefers to do his own stunts no matter how unsafe or mad, hung on to the outside of a plane as it took off. The daredevil action sequences are insane, and virtually all of them are real – including the most outlandish thing writer/director Chris McQuarrie could imagine.
