Tom Cruise risks it all in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One trailer

At this point, what can’t Tom Cruise (Top Gun: Maverick) do? In Paramount’s new trailer for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, Cruise’s Ethan Hunt drives a motorcycle off a cliff, fights on top of a moving train, and hangs off the edge of train car hundreds of feet in the air.

In Dead Reckoning Part One, Hunt and his team are tasked with tracking down a deadly new weapon that threatens all of humanity. However, a new, powerful enemy puts those he loves at risk, forcing Ethan to decide if completing the mission is worth more than his own life.

‘Mission: Impossible — Fallout’ radiates energy in phenomenal action scenes
Mission Impossible fallout review

Tom Cruise's Twitter account biography jokes (or maybe just points out) that he's been "running in movies since 1981." He does more of that in Mission: Impossible — Fallout than he has in years, to the credit of both the actor and the movie.

It's a testament to the fact this sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise is always tearing along at a sprint, blasting from one ridiculous action sequence to the next. There's the car chases, the motorcycle chases, the car-on-motorcycle chases. There’s the foot chase, complete with Cruise leaping from rooftop to rooftop. There's the completely bananas helicopter chase. Fallout never stops. Even its spy thriller dialogue becomes a chase scene, in which one character tries to trap another in logic that will lead to still more chases.

Mission: Impossible 6

The fictional Ethan Hunt may be able to consistently pull off the impossible, but the actor who plays him, Tom Cruise, is only human. The action star was shooting Mission: Impossible 6 this week when he suffered a broken ankle during an on-set accident. Production is on hold while he recovers -- a process that could take between six weeks and three months, according to Variety sources.

Cruise was filming M:I 6 in London on Sunday when he injured himself. As a TMZ video showed Monday, the actor was trying to jump onto a building from some rigging but didn't quite make it. He collided hard with the building, which evidently caused his broken ankle.

In fact, a new video proves that with some clever edits and the addition of actor Simon Pegg to a few scenes, The Mummy trailer could easily become the first look at Mission: Impossible -- Mummy Protocol.
