Trailer video of Tom Cruise from his upcoming film Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1 has been leaked online. MI 7 is one of the most anticipated titles of the year and fans have been eagerly waiting to see the actor in the action avatar. While the trailer of the film was screened last month at CinemaCon, it is yet to be released for the public theatrically and digitally. As soon as the trailer leaked online, it was widely shared across social media platforms. However, it has been pulled down citing 'copyright' issues.
Reportedly, the trailer was stuffed with action-packed footage, including vintage-looking trains flying off tracks, deadly emerald-coloured clouds of biochemical weapons, and plenty of brutal street combat. General audiences will be able to watch the teaser in front of 'Top Gun: Maverick', which hits theatres on May 27. Though plot details for 'MI7' are mostly ambiguous, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team of operatives are again faced with an existential threat.
'MI7', which has been delayed several times during the pandemic, is scheduled to open in theatres on July 14, 2023. 'Dead Reckoning Part Two', as it will presumably be called, is set to be released on June 28, 2024.
Apart from this, Tom Cruise's star vehicle, 'Top Gun: Maverick' had its world premiere at the 75th Cannes Film Festival last week. It was a grand affair, topped up by the appearance of eight fighter jets spewing red, white and blue smoke (national colours of both France and the United States) behind them as members of the films cast looked on from below. It was a special moment for the actor as he received a thunderous ovation after he was presented with a "surprise" Palme d'Or, one that genuinely seemed to take him off guard. He had received another ovation after making some spirited introductory remarks.
Cruise reprises his role of test pilot Captain Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell, who is now put in charge of training a group of younger Top Gun graduates played by the likes of Miles Teller, Glen Powell and more. Teller stars as Bradley 'Rooster' Bradshaw, a pilot trainee who is the son of Maverick's late best friend Nick 'Goose' Bradshaw.
