With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, and dark forces from Ethan's past closing in, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission - not even the lives of those he cares about most.
Hayley Atwell (star of ‘Agent Carter’) is a new face to the franchise, with director McQuarrie hinting, “She's somebody who does not come from this world, she's not a spy, she's not an agent. If anything, she's an agent of chaos, and is something of a random element that's thrown into this story.”
We are also introduced to a new villain played by Esai Morales (‘Titans’), here the director says, “I can tell you that he's definitely the antagonist in our story. He’s something of an enigma. There's definitely more to him than meets the eye and he's something of a ghost of the past." This film is rumoured to have the biggest stunt in cinema history.
The brilliant cast also includes Angela Bassett, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, Nicholas Hoult, Rebecca Ferguson, Rob Delaney and Simon Pegg.
