Let it be known that before Denzel Washington and Liam Neeson began smashing heads on the big screen, and before Paul Walker and Vin Diesel personified what it means to be fast and furious, Tom Cruise redefined the big screen action genre with death-defying stunts (like dangling on the outside of a speeding plane) and oh-so-cool dialogue in the blockbuster franchise, Mission Impossible.
Now, nearly 20 years since the first film, Cruise returns with the fifth installment, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION. And judging by the teaser trailer alone, he's still got that same fierce commitment to the epic spy thriller as ever before (bags under his eyes and all). Returning cast members Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames (as well as franchise newbie Alec Baldwin) are also along for the ride. More on the film in the synopsis:
