mission impossible 8 production

It’s kind of strange to think that we haven’t seen any official images from Mission: Impossible 7. Sure, there have been plenty of behind-the-scenes shots of Tom Cruise doing various life-threatening stunts, but no official still from the highly anticipated action sequel. But now we have our first Mission: Impossible 7 image, courtesy of returning director Christopher McQuarrie, and it features Cruise doing the thing he’s best known for: running.

Mission Impossible 7 on Paramount+

Universal Pictures has already been shaking up the exclusive theatrical release window by sending their smaller and midrange theatrically released titles to VOD just 17 days after they hit the big screen. Then Warner Bros. Pictures came along and took things a step further by releasing all of their 2021 theatrical movies simultaneously on HBO Max for 31 days. Now Paramount Pictures is the latest to shorten the time their movies spend exclusively in theaters.

As part of a Viacom CBS investor day presentation today, Paramount Pictures announced that they will be sending blockbusters such as Mission: Impossible 7, A Quiet Place Part II, and Top Gun: Maverick to the recently rebranded streaming service just 45 days after they’ve hit theaters. Read More »

mission impossible 8 production

Some missions really are impossible, because it looks like plans to shoot the next two Mission: Impossible installments back-to-back have been scrapped. Production on Mission: Impossible 7 is almost at an end, and rather than moving right on to start filming Mission: Impossible 8, things are going to pause for a bit. The change in plans is chalked up to scheduling issues, as star Tom Cruise has to gear-up to promote another Paramount action sequel – Top Gun: Maverick.

Mission Impossible 7 Robots

There’s a story making the rounds that sounds too good to be true. Here’s the gist of it: Tom Cruise apparently brought a pair of terrifying robots to the set of Mission: Impossible 7 to guard against COVID-19. Now, I know what you’re saying: “That’s fucking amazing.” But you’re also probably saying, “Hey, that sounds made up!” And I agree! But let’s be honest: if there’s a story about Tommy Cruise bringing some scary robots to his movie set, we’re not not going to cover it.

But we can tell you right now that it’s not accurate.

Hollywood Pandemic Update

Thanks to the holidays and a disregard for proper quarantining, COVID-19 cases are still surging across the United States. One of the hardest-hit states during the coronavirus pandemic continues to be California, which officially became the first state to surpass 2 million COVID-19 cases on December 23. That’s why the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is urging film, television, and music productions to consider pausing their work for a few weeks in order to reduce risk and possible spread.

Meanwhile, despite the surging of cases of COVID-19 in the United Kingdom, where there’s also a new fast-spreading strain of the virus, Mission: Impossible 7 is resuming production in a new studio location after a little holiday break. Read More »

mission impossible 7 stunt

Tom Cruise has hung out of ascending airplanes, jumped out of helicopters, and scaled the world’s tallest building in the Mission: Impossible series, AKA the lone franchise that will let him spit in death’s face and laugh. So what could he possibly do next? Well, Mission: Impossible 7 already teased a motorcycle stunt for the gods, but director Christopher McQuarrie and Cruise are going back to an old cinematic tradition for the next death-defying Mission: Impossible 7 stunt: a fight on top of a speeding train. And yes, both star and director are really on top of that train.

Mission Impossible 7 Behind-the-Scenes Image

After a delay caused by the coronavirus, Mission: Impossible 7 is finally filming – and in true Mission: Impossible fashion, Tom Cruise‘s life is already in danger. Director Christopher McQuarrie shared a behind-the-scenes image that appears to show Cruise standing on a ramp planted precariously on the side of a cliff. Set footage reveals that Cruise’s character Ethan Hunt is riding a motorcycle off that ramp, parachuting down from there.

The Mission: Impossible franchise has done it all: it has crashed motorcycles, blown up trucks, and dangled its star Tom Cruise out of planes, helicopters, off cliffs, and out of the tallest skyscraper in the world. So it was almost unsurprising when reports came out that the Mission: Impossible 7 crew were planning to blow up a bridge in Poland. But the film production was met with immediate backlash when it was reported that said bridge was an 111-year-old historical landmark, a piece of the country’s heritage that would be demolished in the name of entertainment. But director Christopher McQuarrie is here to set the record straight: no, Mission: Impossible 7 is not blowing up a bridge — at least, not this particular bridge.
