As summer winds down, a few more films still offer summer fun and excitement.
Director Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, a Paramount release, opens on Friday, July 31 and is already getting good buzz. With the IMF disbanded, and Ethan (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, the team now faces off against a network of highly skilled special agents, the Syndicate. These highly trained operatives are hellbent on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks. When the group faces their most impossible mission yet, Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation. Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris and Alec Baldwin also star. PG-13 for sequences of action and violence, and brief partial nudity; 125 Minutes.
