Last week it was announced that the title of the next movie in the long-running Mission Impossible series is Mission Impossible: Fallout. It has now been confirmed that the first trailer will screen during the Super Bowl this weekend. While we wait for that, the movie’s poster has been revealed.
The poster is more subdued than those of previous entries in the franchise and is dominated by the silhouette of star Tom Cruise, with a helicopter stunt placed on top of the image. Check it out below:
Mission Impossible: Fallout hits theaters on July 27, 2018. While we don’t have many plot details yet, director Christopher McQuarrie previously stated that it will be an “emotional journey” for Ethan Hunt. “I’ve seen five of these movies and I don’t know who Ethan Hunt is,” he said last year. “One movie sort of dealt with his personal life; the other movies are about people speculating what’s really going on in Ethan’s head. I want to know who Ethan is in this movie, I want an emotional journey for this character, and Tom really embraced it.”
Mission Impossible: Fallout will pair Cruise once again with co-stars Rebecca Ferguson–the breakout star of the last movie–Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Alec Baldwin. Interestingly, Michelle Monaghan will also appear. The actress has previously played Julia, Ethan’s wife. After being a major figure in Mission Impossible III, she made an uncredited cameo in 2011’s Ghost Protocol but was nowhere to be seen in Rogue Nation.
The movie will also see Superman himself, Henry Cavill, starring as the villain. His character has a mustache in the movie, which led to the infamous CGI manipulation of Superman’s face in Justice League.
