Those lucky enough to attend were blown away, buzzing on Twitter that Tom Cruise is in prime form, that the action sequences, particularly one set in a bathroom, are among the best of the franchise and that it is the perfect sequel.
The Mission: Impossible franchise is over 20 years old, but Ethan Hunt clearly still has plenty of fight in him.
Here, some top Twitter reactions:
Mission: Impossible - Fallout features much of the same cast as Rogue Nation, including Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg and Hot 100 nominee Rebecca Ferguson. They are joined by newcomers to the franchise Angela Bassett and Henry Cavill as CIA agents.
Here is a summary of the new movie from SyFy:
After Syndicate leader Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) slips through the fingers of the IMF, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) finds himself in a race against the clock, trying to prevent a worldwide disaster of nuclear proportions. To make matters worse, the CIA (Angela Bassett and Henry Cavill) are on his tail, with the agency questioning both his motives and his sanity.
Ethan's gonna need all the help he can get from his friends Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames, the only actor besides Cruise to be in every movie so far) and Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), IMF Secretary Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin), Hunt's wife Julia (Michelle Monaghan), and former MI6 agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson).
And even with their collective aid, there's no sure chance of success. The only missing person is Jeremy Renner's William Brandt; Renner was too busy shooting the third and fourth Avengers movies to reprise his role.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout hits theaters on July 27.
