Hard to believe the first one of these came out in 1996. All of my current students, for instance, were born after that.
Glad they brought back Rebecca Ferguson, a highlight for me of the previous film, 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Stunts, cinematography, locations, Cruise intensity — all look top notch.
Opens July 27, 2018.
Saw it last night. Liked it a lot. More than I thought I would. Did a little Twitter thread about it.
Trailer for The Hunter (1980), Steve McQueen’s final film:
“He’s not a cop, he’s America’s last bounty hunter.”
From Wikipedia’s entry for the film:
At home in Los Angeles, Thorson is an old-fashioned guy who has a love of antiques and classical music, drives a 1950s convertible and keeps an antique gasoline pump in his house. His schoolteacher girlfriend Dotty is pregnant and would like “Papa” to be there for her when the baby is born, but his work continually keeps him on the road.
McQueen’s boots, jeans, MA-1 flight jacket combo is very on trend right now.
