Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt in this summer’s recently titled action film Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
Not only was the name of the fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible series revealed today, but a teaser trailer for the film was released as well.
Watch it below:
On top of Cruise, both Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg will both be reprising their roles as William Brandt and Benji Dunn from Brad Bird’s 2011 film Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. Ving Rhames, from all the previous Mission: Impossible films, will also be returning to the role of Luther Stickell.
Paula Patton will not be returning for Rogue Nation, but new additions to the cast include Alec Baldwin, Sean Harris and Rebecca Ferguson.
The full trailer for Rogue Nation will be released tomorrow, but the teaser trailer, which clocks in at just over a minute, shows us plenty of the action from the film. In fact, the trailer ends with a shot of Cruise’s Ethan Hunt hanging from the side of what appears to be a moving plane, teasing that we can expect to see more awesome stunts done by Cruise in Rogue Nation.
Cruise, who is known for doing most of his own stunts in his action films, actually climbed the Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure in the world, for Ghost Protocol. It will certainly be interesting to see if he can top that stunt in the newest Mission: Impossible film.
Also take a look at the film’s new poster:
The film will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who also directed Cruise in 2012’s Jack Reacher and wrote last summer’s Edge of Tomorrow, and written by Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 writer Will Staples. Rogue Nation is a Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot production.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation will be released on July 31, 2015.
