Tom Cruise rides off a cliff in the new 'Mission: Impossible 7' trailer

The new Mission: Impossible trailer will leave you breathless


The pandemic is still creating ripples in the entertainment industry. The release dates of movies that have been in production for years are still being pushed back. For instance, after nearly a year of waiting, the highly anticipated new Tom Cruise spy thriller, "Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One" is finally hitting theaters. However, from the look of the trailer, it's going to be well worth it. The pulse-pounding trailer makes this movie look like a mashup of Bond, Wick and Statham amped up to impossible levels.

After nearly a year of waiting, the highly anticipated new Tom Cruise spy thriller, "Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One" is finally hitting theaters.

Here's what we know about "Dead Reckoning" from the trailer

There are no punches pulled. From what we see in this trailer, in this seventh installment, Ethan Hunt (played by Cruise) has come to a crossroads in his career. The next mission he takes is going to cost him "dearly." But true to his character, Hunt is not backing down from the challenge. He's facing it head-on. There are no cliffhangers in this trailer because Hunt comes right up to the edge… then rides off into the sky. Without hesitation.

With provocative dialogue, such as "truth is vanishing," that is pulled straight from today's headlines, Hunt seems to be fighting for something personal. And it's driving him to go beyond anything he's ever done before. It's not just the bad guys who are coming after him; it's the entire world.

However, as much as this trailer reveals, we know it's only the beginning. Ethan Hunt's saga has been building since 1996, so this film could arguably be the "Infinity War" of the series. Because of that and Cruise's success with "Top Gun: Maverick" just last year, this could be the biggest theatrical event of the summer.
