HBO & HBO HD to premiere ‘Mission Impossible: Fallout’ on March 17
Flirt with danger, as Ethan Hunt swivels through Parisian streets and precariously leaps off rooftops in London, with the momentous mission of saving the world. HBO and HBO HD bring to you the ultimate action blockbuster ‘Mission Impossible: Fallout’, this Sunday, 17th March, at 1pm and 9pm. So, stack up on some popcorn and watch magnificent action and bone-breaking stunts performed by Tom Cruise himself! The movie of the year is presented to fans by Dubai Tourism, co-powered by Volkswagen, Poco by Xiaomi and Amazon Fire Stick TV, along with food delivery partner Swiggy.
This latest sequel in the 22 year-old spy thriller franchise, ringing in more than 3.5 billion dollars at the box office, elevates thrill and pace. Hunt’s mission is set against a ticking clock with three nuclear weapons set to explode in 72 hours. The famous spy plays a distinctive mental parkour against swerving loyalties and assassination attempts. Fallout matches these complications with equally stunning signature action sequences, including the HALO (High Altitude, Low Open) jump and a classic carnage with fist-fights.
Tom Cruise reprises the role of the world’s numero uno spy for the sixth time, showcasing his daredevilry through slick stunts performed without body doubles or special effects. Cruise’s Hunt meets familiar faces and names - Rebecca Ferguson returns as MI6 Agent Ilsa Faust and Simon Pegg as the much-devoted Benji. The plot includes dual threats, CIA chief Erica Sloan played by Angela Bassett, and Sloan’s top-level assassin August Walker, portrayed by Henry Cavill. Vanessa Kirbychips in as the deadly rogue trader, ‘White Widow’. Director Christopher McQuarrie creates a familiar sense of adventure, adding a pinch of complexity as we see Hunt throwing his moral compass askew for just a bit.
HBO and HBO HD will bring to viewers a chance to experience the thrill of being Ethan Hunt and dive into his adrenalin-pumping world. Through an Augmented Reality (AR) game on HBO India Facebook page, fans must dodge and narrowly escape obstacles in 30 seconds while riding a bike, just like the spy!
