After the title for the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible film series was announced by star Tom Cruise last week, it’s only fitting to release the movie’s poster as well, as Paramount Pictures gears up the film’s promo ahead of the film’s big trailer debut on Sunday’s Super Bowl. A teaser for the film’s trailer also recently debuted online.
The poster shows a silhouette of Cruise’s character Ethan Hunt, masking a mountainous landscape with a helicopter and Hunt, true to character’s death defying stunts, dangling from a helicopter.
The teaser is series of quick cuts featuring the film’s cast, starting with Cruise’s Hunt walking through a door, and then walking alongside Isla Faust (Ferguson), followed by intense but still mysterious mustachioed villain August Walker (Henry Cavill) seemingly getting ready for a fistfight. We later see IMF Director Alan Hunley (Baldwin), Bassett’s mysterious character, Benji (Pegg) with Luther (Rhames) in fast action collages along with the icon theme playing in the background.
During filming, Cruise broke his ankle after a dangerous stunt gone awry, a stunt which involved Cruise leaping from one building to another. The injury shut down the film’s production for more than two months to allow the actor’s injury to heal. Here’s a footage of the insane stunt from Graham Norton Show which shows how the actor got injured. WARNING: As the host said, this is NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH.
The Mission: Impossible film franchise is one of the most successful of all-time, with a worldwide gross of over $2.7 billion to date. Judging by these new promotional materials, the film seem set to deliver some more crazy action this summer.
Directed by frequent Cruise collaborator Christopher McQuarrie, who previously helmed Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is scheduled for release on July 27, 2018.
