Los Angeles: The fifth instalment in the Tom Cruise-starrer “Mission: Impossible” franchise has officially been titled “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation”, Paramount Studios has announced.
The moniker shares a key word with Lucasfilm and Disney's “Star Wars” spinoff, “Rogue One”, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
After his stint on Dubai's Burj Khalifa, Cruise, who plays Ethan Hunt in the franchise, is seen moving from the world's tallest building to the friendly skies in the first teaser of “Rogue Nation”.
The 52-year-old is holding onto the side of a plane as it takes off, providing another set piece to haunt viewers with a fear of heights.
In addition to Hunt's daring airplane ride, the rest of the trailer overflows with motorcycle chases, intrigue and warnings about a shadowy organisation known as the Syndicate that must be taken down.
The fifth “Mission: Impossible” was originally slated to debut in December 2015, but Paramount moved the release forward by five months, from Christmas to July 31, 2015.
