Franchise rules used to dictate that part four was when you went into outer space, but Mission: Impossible has been playing by its own rules since it first became a franchise. If you looked at this new poster for Mission: Impossible—Fallout and thought, "Oh cool, they're finally going to space," then allow this new TV spot to set you straight...


Yeah, no space in that TV spot, nor in the trailers for the film, so what gives? Is Tom Cruise going to god damned space or what?

The answer is, who knows. But the franchise is going to a new place... the third dimension. That's right, folks, just when 3D was starting to fade, Mission: Impossible decided to break out the big guns and go 3D with this one. Can anyone explain to me why this is? Most of the IMAX theaters around here only do one 3D showtime a day now, but Paramount decides they want three extra dollars on every ticket, I'm guessing to compensate for the presumed fewer number of tickets they're gonna sell.

Who knows why anyone does what they do, but this seems like a weird gambit. And also, if Tom Cruise is going to space, send him into space for goodness' sake. Nobody needs this namby pamby skydiving from an even higher altitude nonsense. Send him into space on a motorcycle, because who cares anymore? Mission: Impossible—Fallout opens on July 27.
