‘Mission: Impossible 5’ Gets Trailer, ‘Rogue’ Title

Having scaled Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, Ethan Hunt is moving from the world’s tallest building to the friendly skies in the first teaser for the fifth “Mission: Impossible.”

The first look at the upcoming sequel finds the daredevil agent played by Tom Cruise holding onto the side of a plane as it takes off, providing another set piece to haunt viewers with a fear of heights.

The film also has a title, “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.” It’s a moniker that required some intra-studio wrangling, sources tell Variety. Disney’s upcoming “Star Wars” spinoff is entitled “Rogue One,” but the studio didn’t announce the name until March 12, two months after Paramount registered “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.”

The “Star Wars” title has yet to be cleared for use, but Disney has agreed not use “Rogue One” in marketing through the summer as a compromise, sources said. The film debuts on December 16, 2016.

The fifth “Mission: Impossible” was originally slated to debut in December 2015, but Paramount moved the release forward by five months, from Christmas to July 31, 2015.

In addition to Hunt’s daring airplane ride, the rest of the trailer for the next “Mission: Impossible” overflows with motorcycle chases, intrigue and warnings about a shadowy organization known as the Syndicate that must be taken down.
