For the fifth time in almost 20 years, Tom Cruise will slip into the role of secret agent Ethan Hunt for the latest installment of the Mission: Impossible film franchise, and on Cruise’s Twitter Sunday, the actor shared the first teaser-trailer for the July 31st blockbuster. Dubbed Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the new chapter finds Hunt and his team facing off against a sinister spy collective called the Syndicate bent on eliminating the M:I crew.
The new flick finds Hunt’s highly effective but destructive Impossible Mission Force (IMF) disbanded by vengeful Washington bureaucrats such as the CIA chief (played by Alec Baldwin). But Hunt pulls his team together (Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames and newcomer Rebecca Ferguson) to battle the shadowy force known as “The Syndicate” and its elusive leader (Sean Harris).
Stunts that involved speeding on motorcycles, getting airborne in cars and holding his breath underwater for a lengthy period were executed in Morocco, Vienna and London. So there’s little time for rest, even after riding outside an A400 for two days.
