mission impossible 7

Chris McQuarrie, the writer/director of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and last year’s blockbuster hit Mission: Impossible – Fallout, has signed an unprecedented deal for the Mission franchise: he’s coming back to write and direct the next two movies in the long-running series, and he’s shooting them back-to-back. Will star Tom Cruise survive such a production?

paramount theme park

Universal Studios, Disneyland, Walt Disney World and now…Paramount Pictures Park? It’s happening – in South Korea, at least. Paramount has just signed a deal to create a “studio-branded theme park” in a resort being developed in South Korea. Specifics of just what the Paramount theme park will contain are sketchy at best, but the studio has a wide range of entertainment to pick from – Mission: Impossible, Transformers, G.I. Joe, and many more. Personally, I’m hoping for Zodiac ride, where you obsessively comb over mountains of evidence to try to find the Zodiac Killer. That might be a long-shot, though.

Mission Impossible Fallout Honest Trailer

This past summer brought another Mission: Impossible movie to the big screen, and Tom Cruise outdid himself again with another series of incredible stunts that he performed himself. From flying his own helicopter and doing an insane HALO jump from 25,000 feet above the ground, Tom Cruise pulled out all the stops for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and one of these days he’s going to die pulling off one of these stunts. At least that’s the prediction laid out on the table by Honest Trailers.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read about what happened, while watching a video of the experience.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout has been hailed as an instant all-time action classic. Its story moves forwards with relentless determination, while Christopher McQuarrie’s direction and Tom Cruise’s apparent death wish provide jaw-dropping stunt spectacle. It’s edited to near-perfection, constantly escalating the stakes until it hits a climax that’s nail-biting even despite concluding with a hackneyed cliché.

That climax is a perfect microcosm of the film as a whole. In around 15 minutes of screentime – time-kept by a nuclear countdown – it tells its own self-contained story within a story. Fallout’s Kashmir setpiece is masterful parallel-action storytelling, worthy of placement up there with Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, and Mad Max: Fury Road. Strap yourselves in, because we’re going to dive deep into what makes this incredible sequence tick.

Major spoilers, obviously, follow.
