Exclusive: Christopher McQuarrie’s 12 Favorite Action Set Pieces
ComingSoon.net with the chance to talk 1:1 with director Christopher McQuarrie about his 12 Favorite Action Set Pieces. This was timed for the home video release of his blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which is now available on Digital HD and on Blu-ray December 4. Check out McQuarrie’s incredible list of set pieces below!
The best intentions often come back to haunt you. Mission: Impossible – Fallout finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast.
The Mission: Impossible franchise launched in 1966 with the original CBS television series, which ran for seven seasons and 171 episodes. Mission: Impossible returned in 1988 with a rebooted series on ABC. It failed to find an audience, however, and was canceled after two seasons. It was nearly a decade later that the Tom Cruise-led Mission: Impossible feature film would turn the small screen spy series into a hugely-successful cinematic franchise.
Christopher McQuarrie, who previously helmed Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, once again wrote and directed the Paramount Pictures sequel. The film made over $791 million at the global box office, making it the highest-grossing entry in the franchise.
