Paramount Pictures was up early this morning, the studio released a new “Mission Impossible: Fallout” trailer for fans of the franchise. The film is set to hit theaters later this summer, but you can get an early look at the cast and plot thanks to today’s video.
“Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” released back in 2015, the film made over $55M on opening weekend before grossing over $195M domestically. The fifth-installment then went on to make over $682M for the studio worldwide. The last five films have grossed over $934M for Paramount Pictures over the years. The most successful of the films was the follow-up hit “Mission: Impossible II,” which made over $215M domestically.
The studio teases the sixth film adding, “The best intentions often come back to haunt you”. In “Mission Impossible: Fallout” Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan, Simon Pegg) are in a race against time after a mission gone wrong.
Joining the cast this time around are Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby, Christopher McQuarrie returned to franchise to direct the film. Fans of the franchise can watch the official trailer below.
Paramount Pictures will release “Mission Impossible: Fallout” on July 27, 2018. The summer box-office for June is busier than ever. Disney is set to release the Marvel installment “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” Sony is releasing “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” and “The Equalizer 2,” Universal is releasing the Dwayne Johnson actioner “Skyscraper,” “The First Purge,” and “Mama Mia 2,” and Warner Bros. Pictures is releasing “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies” all in that same month. It’s a great month for moviegoers, but studios will have a hard time repeating their opening debuts with all of the competition.
