Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation - First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Your Mission, should you choose to accept it, is here. For the fifth time with Tom Cruise returning as IMF agent Ethan Hunt in Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. And here's our First Look courtesy of the release of the debut trailer by Paramount Pictures. 

Joining the incredibly long stream of tentpole films set to be released this year, we see yet another chapter for one of the most beloved action film franchises in recent decades (last counted as the 18th highest grossing film franchise of all time), the big screen adaptation of the long-running 60s/70s TV series of the same name, Mission: Impossible. Here at The Daily Zombies, we all love Brad Bird's take on the spy genre with Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and with Skydance Productions as well as J. J. Abrams producing, we are expecting another high octane, adrenaline run with the new film set to be released in July.

Freshly announced with the sub-title, Rogue Nation, Mission: Impossible 5 is directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who previously had quite a blast with Cruise in the underrated Jack Reacher. Reteaming Cruise with Ving RhamesSimon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner, with new comer Rebecca Ferguson joining the team, the IMF takes on a new evil organisation cursed with a truly niche title, The Syndicate. Accordingly, the organisation has a near-mythical reputation and boast a network of assassins and rogue operatives, functioning as a kind of anti-IMF consortium. So now we will get to see not one but two evil organisation this year with SPECTRE for the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre, and now The Syndicate. Also joining the cast, actor Sean Harris will be fronting The Syndicate with Alec Baldwin taking on the role of the Head of CIA (by default, a clownish role, we presume).

And if you are starting to harbour thoughts on how now that Tom Cruise is 52, we are getting less of those insane stunts from the actor in his fifth take on series protagonist Ethan Hunt, think again. In Ghost Protocol, we see Cruise challenge gravity scaling Dubai's Burj Khalifa, incidentally the world's tallest building. In Rogue Nation, Cruise actually managed to push the envelope on this one. If you check out the last moments of the trailer embedded below, you will see Cruise splinting down the wing of an Airbus A400 as it takes off... with no strings attached.

In an interview with USA Today, Cruise has the following to say:

“I’ve often sat on airplanes, looked out and thought, ‘What it would be like out there on the wing?’ … “That’s me the whole time. I was standing right over the tires when we landed. It’s nerve-racking for everyone else, but pretty exciting for me.”

And with no further ado, check out the first trailer right below.

Taking perfectly good use of Cruise's incredible stunt, here's the first poster for the film.

Official images recently-released to coincide with the release of the new trailer.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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).

Starring Tom CruiseVing RhamesSimon PeggJeremy RennerRebecca Ferguson, Sean HarrisSimon McBurney, and Alec Baldwin, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is set to be released in both IMAX and traditional theaters worldwide and in North America on July 31, 2015.
