In the advance we see again Tom Cruise in action and some of the many stunts (dangerous and impressive) that he will do in the seventh film of Mission: Impossible. While these crazy action scenes characterize this franchise, they also show us several familiar faces: Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby Y Henry Cherny (who repeat their roles). In addition, there are new cast members, such as Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Esai Morales, Cary Elwesamong others.
As in the previous films, stunts and stunts will not be lacking in the first part of Dead Reckoning. Thanks to the trailer, we already got a first glimpse of what’s to come, and from what we saw, Tom Cruise It seems that it is still just as risky. Let’s remember that the actor is famous for doing his own action scenes.
Although in the trailer we see underwater scenes, car chases, gunshots and various landscapes, Ethan Hunt shines with his impressive acrobatics. From dune riding, street fighting, running and jumping, to riding on top of a moving train and jumping off a cliff. This last one seems to have been one of the most difficult tricks the actor had to do.
Cruise had said that one of the stunts they did for Mission: Impossible 7 It was “the most dangerous thing” I have ever tried. This scene is the one of the motorcycle that we see in the trailer (at least part of it), where Ethan Hunt he is driving off a cliff. But that’s not all, but he drops the bike and falls until he deploys a parachute. The actor claimed that he trained for an entire year to perform that stunt, parachuting 500 times and performing 13,000 jumps on a motorcycle. “I had to be so good at this so there’s no way I’m going to miss my mark.”, he explained.
The actor had spoken to Empire about the technical contingencies that ran through his head on the first day of filming after months of training, as he flew through the skies. “If the wind was too strong, it would blow me off the ramp. The helicopter (who filmed the stunt) It was a problem, because I didn’t want to go down that ramp at full speed and get hit by a rock. Or if it came out in a weird way, we didn’t know what was going to happen to the bike. I had about six seconds once I got off the ramp to pull the parachute and I don’t want to get tangled up in the bike. If I do, that won’t end well”, he explained Cruise.
As for the plot Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One Not much is known yet, but from what we see in the trailer, hunt You will have to choose a side when it comes to international espionage. “Your days of fighting for the supposed ‘common good’ are over“, He tells Eugene Kittridgeinterpreted by Henry Cherny(director of the MFI that persecuted Ethan in the first film) to our protagonist. “This is our chance to control the truth, the concepts of good and evil for everyone, for centuries to come.”
Tom Cruise played undercover CIA agent Ethan Hunt for almost 30 years and, with this seventh film (with a budget of more than 290 million dollars), the actor would begin to say goodbye to his iconic role of action hero and spy, since it is the first part of the conclusion of the franchise, which began in 1996.
The film had a troubled development due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At first, it was expected that Mission: Impossible 7 will arrive in July 2021, but paramount pushed the date back to 2023. In addition, the place where the installment was released was also an issue.
