Henry Cavill Talks ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’, Tom Cruise and Plays “Ice Breakers”

     July 25, 2018

Let me start with the most important thing first: Mission: Impossible – Fallout is a monster home-run of a movie. Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie (the first director to return to the Mission franchise) and Tom Cruise have crafted an action extravaganza that’s loaded with tons of “I can’t believe they just did that!” moments. As most of you know, Cruise is famous for doing his own stunts, and what he does in Fallout will leave your jaw on the ground. But beyond flying a helicopter in crazy ways, riding a motorcycle at high speeds through oncoming traffic in Paris, and jumping out of a plane at thirty-five thousand feet, there is a fight scene in a bathroom with Henry Cavill and Liang Yang that is worth the price of admission alone. Trust me, if you like action movies, thrillers, or just awesome movies, you want to see Mission: Impossible – Fallout on the biggest screen you can when it opens in theaters July 27th.

Recently, I got to speak with Henry Cavill at the press junket in Paris, France. During the wide-ranging conversation he talked about what he’ll never forget about making Mission Impossible: Fallout, his first meeting with Tom Cruise (which was for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), and played “Ice Breakers” – a fun game that includes questions like which TV show you would want to play a guest spot on, favorite sci-fi/fantasy movie, which film scared you as a kid, what you collect, if you own any movie/TV show props, what’s your phone background photo, and more.

Finally, over the next week I’ll be posting plenty of other interviews for Mission: Impossible – Fallout with Christopher McQuarrie, Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Angela Bassett, and Michelle Monaghan so keep checking the site. Mission: Impossible – Fallout also stars Ving Rhames, Vanessa Kirby, Sean Harris, Alec Baldwin, Wes Bentley, and Frederick Schmidt.

Here’s the full list of questions followed by the official synopsis and recent links.
