It looks like the latest Mission: Impossible movie has an official title: Mission Impossible: Fallout.

On top of that, we also have our first image from the movie courtesy of star Tom Cruise:

The image gives us our first look at Superman himself, Henry Cavill as new character August Walker and he’s sporting THAT moustache. We also get a look at another new character played by Angela Bassett. Neither is known about either character but it’s a safe bet they meet in Paris at some point in the movie.

Speaking of Cruise, anyone watching The Graham Norton Show this weekend will have seethe footage on the show of the actor rising life and limb and breaking his ankle that halted filming for six weeks.

It’s a bit rough and may make you go ‘oooooooh!’ as you watch it. You’ve been warned:


Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie

Starring: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, Wes Bentley, Frederick Schmidt

Official synopsis: The best intentions often come back to haunt you. MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
