Full Behind-the-Scenes Preview for 'M:I - Dead Reckoning Part One'
"How do we involve the audience? I just want to give them that thrill." Paramount has debuted the full 10 minute behind-the-scenes preview for Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One online after first showing in theaters with Avatar: The Way of Water. As everyone knows, they shot both of the next movies back-to-back - Dead Reckoning: Part One and Part Two, opening in the summers of 2023 and 2024. Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt formerly of the IMF, off on more covert missions to save the world. The cast in Part One includes Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Esai Morales, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, Henry Czerny, and Cary Elwes. This featurette focuses on a few of the big stunts, mainly the motorbike parachute jump off of the famous cliff in Norway. I'm amazed to see how many times they did prep jumps just to find the perfect place to setup the camera, and make sure everything works well for the shot in addition to Cruise's safety. That's some serious commitment. This is behind-the-scenes marketing I dig, especially since it doesn't open for 7 more months.
