Mission: Impossible – Fallout may be the sixth installment of the film franchise, but for something that has been around for the better part of 20 years, it manages to find new and inventive ways to raise the stakes and stay fresh. Tom Cruise reprises his role as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, the fearless spy who is willing to risk his own life to see that the mission gets done. However, the spy faces his greatest test yet when his loyalty to his country is tested and nuclear bombs are scattered in the winds.

While it may be just another Mission: Impossible film, Fallout is anything but that. Full of pulse-pounding moments, the latest entry proves to be the best one yet, as it will have you on the edge of your seat with dazzling action set pieces, brilliant pacing, and a story with so many twist and turns your head will spin.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout header image

Releasing the first trailer for a blockbuster film during the Super Bowl isn’t a completely new strategy. But it is one that will get the most eyes considering that it is one of the most watched games on the planet. And with companies spending up to $5 million for each commercial, you can bet that each studio is going to put their best – or at least blockbustery – film out there. And to get ahead of that, some, like Paramount, are releasing teaser posters to generate some interest.

The first poster for Mission: Impossible – Fallout has been released. The film is the sixth installment of the long-running franchise, which sees Tom Cruise reprising his role as Ethan Hunt once more. Check out the poster below.

The Weinstein Company has released the newest trailer for Justin Kurzel‘s big-screen adaptation of William Shakespeare’s dark play Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender as the title character who rises to power to seize the throne with the help of his wife, Lady Macbeth (Marion Cotillard)

Macbeth is already complete with The Weinstein Company acquiring the distribution rights and it already premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival where it was met with rave reviews. It’s now ready for its limited theatrical release this December, and judging by the looks of the trailer, we should be in for a major awards campaign.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Review

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Screenwriter: Christopher McQuarrie
Cast: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris, Alec Baldwin
Paramount Pictures
Rated | 131 Minutes
Release Date: July 31, 2015

“Hunt is the living manifestation of destiny and he has made you his mission.”

Directed by Brian De Palma and starring Tom Cruise, 1996’s Mission: Impossible was a critical and commercial success. Based on the 1960s CBS television series, the adaptation became the third highest-grossing film of that year, bested only by Twister and Independence Day.

Five movies and two decades later, the Mission: Impossible franchise shows no signs of slowing. The latest installment, Christopher McQuarrie‘s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, is an action-packed spy thriller that’s bolder than Bond and more fun than Furious 7.

Behind The Scenes Video Of Tom Cruise’s Insane ‘Rogue Nation’ Plane Stunt

Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation Header

There’s no denying that Tom Cruise is one of the biggest movies stars ever to walk this little planet we all call home. But what separates him from most other big stars out there is his willingness to take on many of the unbelievable stunts required of the role that he’s playing all by himself.

Many of these wild and crazy stunts have been done in his time playing Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible movie franchise. We saw the biggest of them in 2011’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, in which Cruise actually dangled off the side of the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It was the biggest he’s ever performed, that is. But not anymore. When Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is released on July 31st, that stunt will be surpassed in a big way when moviegoers watch Cruise hanging from the side of a freakin’ airplane as it takes off.

We’ve seen a preview of the stunt in trailers for the movie, and now a new video has been released offering a behind the scenes peek at Cruise being strapped to the side of the plane and hanging on for dear life as it takes off. You can check it out below.

‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ Trailer: This May Be IMF’s Last Mission

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Since Paramount rescheduled Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation for a July release – in order to get away from the huge competition that Star Wars: The Force Awakens presents – the studio has been on one big marketing push. It was only a few months ago when we saw the last trailer for the Tom Cruise starring vehicle.

In the film we learn that the U.S. government has disavowed the IMF (the spy agency that Ethan Hunt works for), on the cusp of a rogue nation rising to create chaos. It wouldn’t be much of a trailer without a huge stunt as a selling point, and it looks like the trailer wants to let us know that there will be quite a few of them. Check out the trailer below.

Sean Harris in talks to join Mission Impossible 5

Tom Cruise is already shooting Mission: Impossible 5, but its director, Christopher McQuarrie, has yet to find the film’s antagonist. While little is known about the plot, we are learning that Paramount has offered the role of the villain to Sean Harris, according to Deadline.

He may not have the household name status yet, but you have probably seen him in Prometheus, The Borgias, 24 Hour Party People, and Red Riding Trilogy.

A Lonely Place to DieA Lonely Place to Die
Blu-ray
Directed by Julian Gilbey
Written by Julian Gilbey and William Gilbey
Starring Melissa George, Ed Speleers, Sean Harris, and Karel Roden
IFC Films/MPI Media Group
Release Date: March 20, 2012

The Story

Alison (Melissa George) and her friends Ed (Ed Speleers) and Rob (Alec Newman) along with marrieds Alex (Garry Sweeney) and Jenny (Kate Macgowan) have traveled to the Scottish Highlands for a relaxing vacation of peace, quiet, and a little intense mountain climbing. One day the group finds their vacation brought to a dead standstill when they discover a barely alive little girl named Anna (Holly Boyd) being held prisoner buried under the ground. They dig her out and decide to head for the nearest village to call for help, but en route they realize that they’re being hunted by the forces that put Anna in the ground to begin with – notorious kidnappers Kidd (Sean Harris) and McRae (Stephen McCole). The criminals have taken the young girl who doesn’t speak a word of English with the intention of holding her for ransom and are prepared to see their devious scheme to the end even if it means taking a few more lives than they originally intended. It’s up to Alison and her friends to brave treacherous bluffs and raging rivers to get Anna to safety without losing their lives to Kidd and McRae, who have their own problems in the form of a resourceful mercenary (Eamonn Walker) and a company man (Karel Roden) who has been hired by Anna’s mysterious father to bring her back at all costs.
