HOLLYWOOD—The last installment in the “Mission Impossible” franchise, “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” might have been one of my favorites in the entire franchise. Its narrative was a nail-bitter and it had amazing action sequences to say the least. The fact that it was a box-office monster, only solidified that a sequel would soon follow.
Well the wait is officially over. The title and first trailer for the film “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” was released this week and it teases some major action sequences for the audience. Back for more chaos is Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames and a few new faces including Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin.
While little is know about the plot, Cruise continues to prove at 50 he still has the skills to kick butt. Oh, I forgot to mention that scene where Ethan Hunt literally hangs from the side of a plane as it takes off. Yep, the series always finds a way to take stunts to new heights. “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” arrives in theaters on July 31.
