“We knew anything we did was going to be compared with the Burj. But it’s not like you could wait for someone to build an even taller building,” director Christopher McQuarrie told USA Today about trying to match Brad Bird‘s tremendous setpiece in “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.” “We keep pushing the envelope.” The answer? As you saw in the “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” teaser yesterday, Tom Cruise is thrown out on the wing of an airplane.
“I’ve often sat on airplanes, looked out and thought, ‘What it would be like out there on the wing?'” Cruise said. “This is the (stuff) I think about.” Well, now he knows the sensation as the upcoming sequel looks to be going big, or going home.
Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris and more all step into the new film that finds the Impossible Mission Force disbanded, but of course, brought back together by Ethan Hunt when the THE SYNDICATE (oooooooh!) threatens to do bad things. So yeah, another plot that will find Ethan and co. running, jumping, and doing high-tech stunts. Basically, this is what you want when you buy a ticket.
“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” opens on July 31st.
