Mission: Impossible - Fallout

The Mission: Impossible franchise has been on a consistent drive to up the ante – and this latest outing is certainly no different.

Titled Mission: Impossible – Fallout, the new instalment teases Tom Cruise doing various, extremely dangerous-looking activities: jumping out of a plane, crashing a helicopter, and leaping between two office buildings.

The last of these, of course, famously led to a broken ankle for the actor. As he explained on The Graham Norton Show: “I was chasing Henry [Cavill] and was meant to hit the side of the wall and pull myself over but the mistake was my foot hitting the wall."

“I knew instantly my ankle was broken and I really didn’t want to do it again so just got up and carried on with the take. I said, ‘It’s broken. That’s a wrap. Take me to hospital’ and then everyone got on the phone and made their vacation arrangement.”

Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan and Rebecca Ferguson all return for the film, joined by Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby. The film sees Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and his IMF team, along with some familiar allies, in a race against time after a mission gone wrong.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout hits UK cinemas 26 July.
