Can Tom Cruise be stopped? At 60 years old, Cruise successfully led the box office and Oscar-nominated success of Top Gun: Maverick, while his other long-running franchise, Mission: Impossible, keeps on chugging along this summer with Dead Reckoning Part One!
A new trailer has arrived for the first of an epic two-part storyline that will serve as the “culmination” of IMF agent Ethan Hunt’s story. While that sure sounds like the end of the road for this franchise, nobody has actually confirmed that, least of all Cruise himself and what he says goes. Frankly, these movies are making more money now than ever before, so why would Cruise or Paramount want to quit now?
Here’s the official synopsis! Shocker, it involves the fate of the entire world!
In Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team embark on their most dangerous mission yet: To track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands. With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, and dark forces from Ethan’s past closing in, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission – not even the lives of those he cares about most.
Once again directed by Cruise’s pal, Christopher McQuarrie, the film stars Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett, Henry Czerny, Esai Morales, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, Cary Elwes, Rob Delaney, Indira Varma, Charles Parnell, and Mark Gatiss.
With this many badass ladies, could we get an all-female spinoff or something, please?
Mission: Impossible-Dead Reckoning Part One opens July 12th!
