In the air, on land and underwater, Cruise's character somehow keeps on ticking
Things are only getting more impossible for Ethan Hunt.
But of course he survives, only to find himself frantically hurtling over and through cities and towns in planes, trains and automobiles – with Simon Pegg by his side – always an inch or two from disaster.
We also get some grimly dramatic scenes with Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames as they fret over some shady characters known as The Syndicate, who seem bent on taking out the IMF. (The CIA also seems pretty angry at Cruise and company.)
And the woman in the gold dress? That’s series newcomer Rebecca Ferguson, who followed Cruise’s lead and committed to doing her own stunts for the film – the fifth in the franchise, and the first since 2011’s Ghost Protocol.
Rogue Nation hits theaters July 31.
