No one could accuse Tom Cruise of resting on his laurels. As the star, producer and resident daredevil in chief of the Mission: Impossible franchise, he has continued to push the boundaries of action cinema well into his fifties. The latest outing for the IMF is Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which sees Cruise’s Ethan Hunt sent to track down missing plutonium before terrorists can put together a nuclear device.
The film is already attracting rave reviews from critics, with many calling it the best in the franchise, which has been running since 1996. Particular praise has been handed to its ambitious action sequences, including the notorious rooftop jump that saw Cruise break his ankle on the set.
Cruise and his fellow stars took to the red carpet in London last night for the UK premiere of the film, and Flickering Myth was there to grab a word with all of the famous folk, including Cruise himself and co-stars Simon Pegg and Frederick Schmidt, as well as producer Jake Myers.
