The Mission Impossible franchise is one of the most successful and entertaining action franchises in Hollywood. Tom Cruise was always a great actor, but MI series turned him into a megastar. He is famous for performing daring stunts without a stunt double. With each passing movie, he has raised the stakes, in MI 4: Ghost Protocol, he climbed the world’s tallest skyscraper Burj Khalifa in Dubai, while in Rogue Nation he was literally dangling outside an actual plane.
At CinemaCon, Paramount made it clear that they would film MI-6 in IMAX for enhanced experience of the cinemagoers. Jeff Sneider has confirmed a series of locations – London, India, Paris, Newzealand.
In the previous films too, IMAX 3D has been used for specific scenes, but the extent of usage of this revolutionary technology will put this one in a totally different league.
Recently, the director of MI 6 Christopher Macquarie made the announcement on his Instagram account that Henry Cavill (who played Superman/ Man of Steel) has agreed to be part of the next movie in the MI franchise. It was totally insane the way Henry Cavill came on board. Here’s the social media conversation he had with Macquarie:
Christopher Macquarie to Cavill – “Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you’re interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure.” Cavill replied, “Oh ok…..I’m in!” To this, he responded @henrycavill Outstanding. Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self-destruct in 5 seconds.”
His first look has been revealed and it’s raw and brutal. He will be the right-hand man of IMF’s head played by Alec Baldwin. He will also fill in the void left by Jeremy Reiner who played Brandt in MI: 4 and Mission Impossible 5.
The movie has an ensemble cast comprising of Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson etc. and it will be released on July 27, 2018.
