As you can see, we are filming the latest installment of Mission Impossible.” He finished, “Let’s all have a great summer. See you at the movies!”
As per the publication, Cruise’s character, Ethan Hunt, is given a dressing down by his former opp boss Kittridge, who was played by Henry Czerny from the 1996 film. In the trailer, Kittridge says, “Your days of fighting for the greater good are over. This is our chance to control the truth…the concepts of right and wrong for centuries. You’ve been fighting for ideas that don’t exist, never did. You need to pick a side.” The trailer has shots from Venice and the Vatican, as well as an intense scene of an office getting gassed, which adds to the intrigue.
