Mission Impossible: Fallout
ETHAN HUNT, along with his Impossible Mission Force team, joins with CIA assassin August Walker to stop a nuclear attack. Arms dealer John Lark and a terrorist group plan a simultaneous attack on the Vatican, Jerusalem, and Mecca using three plutonium cores. Ethan and his team go on a mission in search for the missing weapons before they fall into the wrong hands. Written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, it stars Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby. Empire’s Helen O’ Hara writes, “McQuarrie and Cruise push each scene a little further than you think they can, adding an unexpected flourish or upping the stakes in a way that feels fresh, so that you can never quite predict Hunt’s limits.”
