Love him or hate him, Tom Cruise does dish out exciting stunts especially in the Mission: Impossible films.

The sixth instalment of the popular franchise, titled Mission: Impossible – Fallout, got a lot of publicity during its filming stages when production was forced to shut down after Cruise broke his ankle executing a dangerous stunt (which can be seen in the movie trailer).

From the trailer, we can also deduce that actor Henry Cavill is quite convincing as the villain (moustache and all!). Cavill’s assassin character starts hunting down Ethan Hunt (Cruise) after an earlier mission – instigated by Solomon Lane, the baddie from the last movie – goes wrong.

Now Ethan and the IMF team must once again race against time to do what they do best – save the world from a global catastrophe.

Joining Cruise are actors from previous Mission: Impossible films namely Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin. The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby and Cavill are new additions.
