Tom Cruise reprises his role as IMF agent Ethan Hunt in the fifth installment of the “Mission Impossible,” franchise titled, “Rogue Nation.” Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for the fifth installment film on Sunday, Mar. 23, 2015. The studio released the trailer along with the film’s first poster on the same day.
In the clip, Ethan and his team are back to take down a syndicate, which they identify as an anti-IMF (Impossible Missions Force). As Hunt says in the trailer, the syndicate is a Rogue Nation that is trained in the same way that they are, only with a different goal in mind. They need to destroy the IMF.
Christopher McQuarrie helmed and penned the film along with a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Will Staples.
“Mission Impossible” premiere has been moved to an earlier date in order to give way to “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” in December and the James Bond movie, “Spectre” in November, Time reported.
Telegraph cited that the title of fifth installment to the “Mission Impossible” franchise is a bit controversial, with “Rogue Nation” sharing a keyword with the “Star Wars” spin-off, “Rogue One.”
The Hollywood Reporter said, though, that Paramount has already received clearance for the title with the Motion Picture Association of America before Disney announced the title for the “Star Wars” spin-off film.
The outlet noted that while Paramount Pictures could have easily blocked off Disney with their “Star Wars” spin-off film sharing an important keyword in their titles, both studios have already worked on a deal.
“Disney will refrain from referring to ‘Rogue One’ this summer in any promotional materials aimed at the general consumer,” the outlet cited.
Cruise also shared the newly-released trailer for his film on his Twitter account and said: “I’m excited to share the first footage for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation with you. #MissionImpossible” along with the link to the video posted on the official “Mission Impossible” YouTube account.
Cruise will star alongside former “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” stars, Simon Pegg (Benji Dunn) and Jeremy Renner (William Brandt). Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris and Simon McBurney will be joining the cast.
“Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” will be released on July 31, 2015. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates.
