New Mission Impossible: Fallout Trailer Delivers Insane Stunts
"He's not just some observer. He's an assassin."
The new trailer for Mission Impossible: Fallout is here. This is the second promo for the sixth movie in the long-running action franchise, which sees Tom Cruise return as Ethan Hunt and hits theaters in July.
While the first trailer was more concerned with the action, this new one delivers a healthy dose of plot too. It reveals that Hunt will have two advisories --Sean Harris's villainous Solomon Lane, who we last saw in 2015's Rogue Nation, and CIA assassin August Walker. He's played by Superman star Henry Cavill, who is sporting his notorious mustache. It's not short on action either, with some incredible looking stunts, including an insane-looking skydive and the very moment where Cruise broke his ankle while shooting. Check it out above.
Mission Impossible: Fallout also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett, and Alec Baldwin. It's directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who previously helmed 2015's Ghost Protocol. It hits theaters on July 27.
Despite the crazy-looking action, McQuarrie has previously stated that Fallout will be more character-based than some previous entries. "I don't want to string together a bunch of action scenes, I want to actually deal with character," he told Empire. "So I put Ethan in a bunch of complicated moral quandaries, and I'm trying to find ways to connect them--and then, ironically, the way to connect them was through giant action scenes."
