    That sounds awesome. I can’t wait for a trailer for the next one sometime early next year or whenever. I need to see what they’ve come up with.

    When Cruise calls it a day as Ethan Hunt he will do it in style and leave the audience cheering.

    Interestingly last week (I think it was) someone was at Duxford last week and posted that both Cruise and Harrison Ford were there, up in old planes.
    The Ford thing seemed a little unlikely as he'd been filming overnight in London the night before; but it's not, ahem, impossible.

    Nice 🥂
    I can't wait to know more about MI7, it'll be interesting to see how they top Fallout

    I'd be amazed if they managed to top Fallout, but if there's one team who can pull it off, it's McQuarrie, Cruise and co.

    Heh! Here it is:



    I guess maybe he did his bit quickly and the paps missed him, or maybe the lady tweeting got her wires crossed.

    A stunt with a Stearman fits in perfectly with a stunt with a steam train, recalling the classic, stylish "North by Northwest" era. (anyone remember this?) The MI team could make it even better....(Hyams could have produced a great Bond...I digress)

    That could've been great - like the article says, inducing whiplash in the viewer through shock over the actor's appearance, only to deliver even more shock when they're so quickly killed off - but Liang Yang absolutely killed it with his talents and expertise and I wouldn't want that scene any other way than what we got.

    Given how prominent the fight was in some of the trailers and marketing, I'm guessing that surprise wouldn't have worked out for very long had they gone with an A-lister.

    Yeah it's a really fun idea but for how the scene turned out I think a stunt guy was pretty much the only way to go.

    I really hope we get another fight scene akin to the bathroom one in the newest installment. That's one of my favorite moments from Fallout.

    A great use of a prominent actor who is unexpectedly eliminated for effect was Steven Seagal in “ Executive Decision “

    I think the most recent series of Line of Duty on BBC One had the best variant of that I've seen so far: a very well-known UK TV actor (Jimmy Nesbitt) was introduced as a suspect in a case via his mugshot appearing on a screen, so everyone watching thought 'oh there's James Nesbitt: his character clearly did it then!', but by the time his character actually turned up onscreen he was already a corpse and he never actually appeared in a single scene! :D
