Earlier this week, Paramount revealed an all-new look at its upcoming blockbuster sequel Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, showcasing some of the bat-shit insane stunts within Christopher McQuarrie’s ambitious actioner.

With the IMF now scattered across the globe, Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt becomes the hunted along with his crew of super-spies. Tracked by a team of highly-skilled agents known as The Syndicate, it’s understood that Rogue Nation‘s main threat will be headed up by Sean Harris’ big bad. Throughout the franchise’s history, those villainous shoes have been filled by Jon Voight, Dougray Scott, and the late, great Phillip Seymour-Hoffman – so, yeah, no pressure.
