Tom Cruise displays his latest death-defying feats In the seventh Mission: Impossible film, which is part one of two films that are expected, but not confirmed, to complete the long-running action spy film franchise.
Cruise (agent Ethan Hunt) is seen riding his motorcycle down a cliff and performing other acrobatics in the teaser. Fans will also get a first look at Henry Czerny’s Kittridge, who hasn’t been seen since the original 1996 film.
“Your days of fighting for the greater good are over,” Kittridge tells Ethan in the trailer.
“This is our chance to control the truth, the concepts of right and wrong for everyone for centuries to come. You’ve been fighting to save an ideal that doesn’t exist, never did. You need to pick a side.”

The release date of Mission: Impossible 7 was once again postponed in January due to ongoing worries over COVID.
It was rescheduled for September 30, 2022, four months after its intended release date of May 27, 2022. Its first release date had been slated for July 2021.
Following COVID’s persistent influence on the film’s development in the UK, Paramount Pictures and Skydance have announced that the picture will now be released on July 14, 2023.
The eighth film in the series, which was shot concurrently with the seventh and was recently revealed by The Wrap to be “part two,” is now set to hit theatres on July 28, 2024.
According to a Variety rumour from February, the two films will serve as a send-off for Cruise in the franchise, or a “culmination” of sorts.
Cruise revealed last year how he kept the Mission: Impossible 7 set operating during the pandemic.
The actor, who also produces and appears in the action picture, spoke to Empire about the safety precautions in place during filming. “I’ve produced 30 to 40 movies. I am responsible for thousands, if not tens of thousands, of jobs,” Cruise said.
“All my friends in the industry, people that are in distribution, and my crew were like, ‘What are we going to do? I could lose my house!’ So I told the studio and I told the industry, ‘We’re going back. We’re going to get everyone back to work. We’re going to start shooting in the summer. And we’re going to figure out how to do it safely.’”
