Synopsis

Everything has changed and the mission hangs in the balance – now more than ever before.

IMF agent, Ethan Hunt returns to finish what was started. Alongside his trusted team, Hunt is seeking to put an end to the threat that still looms large over the world. But things have changed and great losses have been suffered. The battle for truth and freedom will test Ethan Hunt to his limit. With so much on the line for the inimitable IMF agent, his task is harder and more personal than ever. If he is going to protect not just the people that he loves but the ideals that he strives for he will have to be careful but also daring; quick but also precise. The question remains; does Ethan Hunt have enough left to give in order to save the world one last time?

The two-part finale sees a return to directorial duties for action maestro Christopher McQuarrie with another pulsating score by Lorne Balfe. McQuarrie is a long-time collaborator with the lead actor, producer, and Hollywood legend, Tom Cruise who has been iconic in the role of Ethan Hunt since the 1996 original.

Rebecca Ferguson is Ilsa Faust, once an M16 agent now an ally for Hunt and his team.
