Tom Cruise defies death in new Mission: Impossible - Fallout photo
The impossible seems, well, possible when Tom Cruise is in control.
One day after announcing the title for the sixth entry in the Mission: Impossible franchise, Cruise shared a spine-tingling photo from the set showing the actor leaping from a dangerously high scaffolding toward the edge of a building.
As he shared the shot on Instagram, Cruise also promised the upcoming film, titled Mission: Impossible – Fallout, will be “the most thrilling mission yet” in the action series, which launched in 1996 as a reimagining of the 1966 TV series of the same name.
On Thursday, Cruise shared another sneak peek at the film, showing off a still of himself hanging from the side of a helicopter.
Though specific plot details are still under wraps, director Christopher McQuarrie told Empire that“the title has multiple meanings in the film, from the literal to the figurative,” further explaining that “there is the threat of nuclear terrorism hanging over the movie, which is the literal threat.”
“There’s [also] the notion that what’s happened in the movie is the end result of choices that Ethan Hunt has made in his life,” he continued, referencing Cruise’s character. “It’s Ethan’s past come back to haunt him. It’s the fallout of all his good intentions.”
Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett, Alec Baldwin, Ving Rhames, and Vanessa Kirby will join Cruise and McQuarrie when Mission: Impossible – Fallout hits theaters on July 27.
