He’s back! Mission: Impossible — Fallout first trailer aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 4, and it showed Tom Cruise up to more crazy stunts.
In a voiceover at the start of the video clip, the 55-year-old action hero’s character, Ethan Hunt, is told,
Your mission should you choose to accept it. I ever wonder, did you ever choose not to?
Then we can see the man who is speaking and he has deadly looking device held to his neck as he sits opposite Hunt. He warns,
The end you always feared is coming and the blood will be on your hands. The fallout of all your good intentions.
The fast-moving trailer features Angela Bassett and Alec Baldwin having a conversation about plutonium before Henry Cavill appears on screen to remind us that Ethan has been betrayed countless times by his government.
How long before a man like that has had enough?
We briefly see returning cast members Michelle Monaghan, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Rebecca Ferguson before we’re treated to action scenes showing Tom scaling a sheer mountainside, speeding through the streets of Paris on a motorbike, and dangling off a rope attached to a flying helicopter before he tries to jump off the top of a building.
It was while filming that scene that Tom broke his ankle and production on the movie was briefly shut down while he recovered.
The film will hit the theaters on July 27.
