I already shared my interview with writer-director Christopher McQuarrie and the “Would You Rather” portion of my chat with Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson, but there was a reason those interviews were conducted in Vienna. A pivotal scene in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (and the best scene, in my opinion) takes place in the Vienna State Opera so Tom Cruise decided that the world premiere of the movie should take place there, too. After my one-on-one chats with McQuarrie, Pegg and Ferguson, I got to hit the red carpet to continue celebrating the upcoming release by chatting with more of the folks behind the film.
Check out the video below to see producers David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger play “High/Low,” to hear about what composer Joe Kraemer did with the iconic Mission: Impossible theme song, to get Cruise’s thoughts on his decision to have a different director direct each installment of the series (the next entry could shoot as early as next summer) and loads more. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation makes its way into theaters on July 31st.
Here’s the official synopsis of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation:
With the IMF disbanded, and Ethan (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, the team now faces off against a network of highly skilled special agents, the Syndicate. These highly trained operatives are hellbent on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation, as the group faces their most impossible mission yet.
