MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT
Accepting (and completing) the near-impossible mission of creating a box office mega-hit beloved by audiences and critics alike, director Christopher McQuarrie (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ¬– ROGUE NATION) returned to the franchise with a bang. On a dangerous assignment to recover stolen plutonium, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) chooses saving his team over completing the mission, allowing nuclear weapons to fall into the hands of a deadly network of highly-skilled operatives intent on destroying civilization. Now, with the world at risk, Ethan and his IMF team (Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames and Rebecca Ferguson) are forced to become reluctant partners with a hard-hitting CIA agent (Henry Cavill) as they race against time to stop the nuclear fallout. There's never been a threat more destructive, stunts so jaw-dropping or a helicopter chase so thrilling — this one deserves the full big-screen experience! (Note adapted from Paramount Pictures.) DIR/SCR/PROD Christopher McQuarrie; PROD J.J. Abrams, Tom Cruise, Jake Myers. U.S./China/France/Norway, 2018, color, 147 min. RATED PG-13
