“There cannot be peace without, first, a great suffering and the greater the suffering, the greater the peace.”
Tom Cruise returns for the sixth chapter in this action-packed saga and, as the title suggests, he’s dealing with the “fallout” of decisions made in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Because of that, Ethan has been assigned a shadow by his bosses in the form of August Walker (Henry Cavill). If Ethan is like a “scalpel,” then August is a “hammer.” He’s an assassin with orders to hunt down and kill Ethan should he ever go rogue again.
The trailer plays out like one massive action sequence montage while also teasing Cruise's co-stars Simon Pegg, Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, Ving Rhames, Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle Monaghan. Among others, Ethan engages in a bathroom fistfight, jumps out of a massive building and narrowly avoids motorcycle explosions and helicopter disasters.
Christopher McQuarrie – who previously helmed 2015's Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation – directed the franchise's sixth installment, which hits theaters July 27.
