Tom Cruise has been carrying the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE film series for almost two decades now and still shows no signs of slowing down. Why should he? People continue to make these films a viable commodity in the cinematic marketplace. Each of the films in this series keeps getting better and better – with the last (ROGUE NATION) completely astounding us and living up to its potential.

The latest in the film franchise is director Christopher McQuarrie’s MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT, which allegedly is going to be showing our beloved spy, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) dealing with some pretty heavy ramifications for his actions. He also gets to throw down in a spectacular fight with Henry Cavill and his pornstache. Yowsa!

It’s a mission y’all should choose to accept. The stunts have grown bolder, more brutal and badass, that’s when we know we’re in for something spectacular.
