While Mission Impossible Rogue Nation brings together the best of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF) in pursuit of The Syndicate, the film also introduces several new faces to Ethan Hunt’s (Tom Cruise) world. Most notably Ilsa Faust, played by Rebecca Ferguson. If the trailer hasn’t been able to tempt you to watch the film yet, here are some reasons why you should do it.Tom CruiseEthan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is the first person who comes to mind when we think about the Mission Impossible installments. Five movies into the series, Tom Cruise has his Ethan Hunt avatar on lock. For this film, Cruise has sported a perfect physique (thanks to his gruelling workout sessions for the role). Daredevil secret agent Ethan Hunt takes on his most dangerous assignment yet in Rogue Nation, which adds that extra zing to the film. Tom Cruise will be seen strapping himself to the side of an airplane and riding it up into the sky.Rebecca FergusonThere might be many reasons for watching MI-5, but one that stands above all is the leading lady in the film. Rebecca Ferguson goes an extra mile to achieve a certain level of perfection in the film. The first two parts lacked a strong female lead. MI 3 had Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) married, but still that leading lady who kicks the baddies was missing. Paula Patton was good in Ghost Protocol, but still could not pack in that punch which was somehow always missing in the series. Rebecca, though not a much-known face, carried off the role which fans wanted to see in one of the MI films. She’s no eye candy; she’s an agent to be reckoned with, and has the bruises to prove it. She will play Ilsa in the film. Ferguson had to deal with high physical demands without losing Ilsa Faust’s feminine wiles. Ferguson can be one of the biggest reasons to watch the film. And hats off to her Mortal Kombat scene in Rogue Nation.advertisementRELATED: Mission Impossible Rogue Nation dominates US box office on opening weekend Daredevil StuntsThe death-defying stunts might make you go crazy over this Mission Impossible. From hanging on to a plane at 5,000 feet above the sea level, to jumping off the rooftop of the Vienna State Opera House, Tom Cruise’s stunts, mostly done by the actor himself, might leave you awe-struck. There’s also an underwater stunt involving around 75,000 gallons of water. Interestingly, Cruise is trained in the art of controlling his breath underwater for about six minutes. Not just Tom Cruise, the leading lady of the series will also be seen doing some action-packed sequences.”Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation is Better than Bourne, Better than Bond” -Forbes.

Jeremy Renner is back as Brandt too, and will add a dash of humour to the film. Jack Donaghy stars as the head of the Central Intelligence Agency. Sean Harris will be seen as the villainous Solomon Lane. Alec Baldwin has been roped in for the role of the head of the US Government. Backed by such actors in this part of the MI series, Cruise is at the top of his game.WATCH: Tom Cruise actually hangs off a plane in Mission Impossible Rogue Nation Christopher McQuarrie He is the man behind Mission Impossible Rogue Nation. McQuarrie is known for his tense stories like The Usual Suspects or Edge of Tomorrow, but he’s also been acclaimed for directing films like Way of the Gun and the Tom Cruise-led adaptation of the Jack Reacher novels. Now Christopher McQuarrie is out with his biggest directorial venture yet, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation. He grabbed a lot of eyeballs with his film Jack Reacher. That film was shot quite well and had all the intricate details in place. The director’s latest, MI 5 too seems promising.
