In Cruise Control: “MI5″ Premieres in Multiple Cities

The film spans the globe and utilizes a series of international landmarks as set pieces.

From New York to Canada, Korea to Vienna, Caribpress entertainment reporter Samantha Ofole-Prince compiles footage from the various  MI5 premieres.

It’s been a busy month for Tom Cruise who is back as Ethan Hunt, facing his most blisteringly impossible mission yet, in “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” the fifth installment in the constantly accelerating action-thriller series.

The actor along with his co-stars and  film director Christopher McQuarrie – with whom he worked as a screenwriter on “Valkyrie,” “Edge of Tomorrow” and as a director on “Jack Reacher” jetted to multiple cities to promote the action packed film which opened at 3,956 U.S. theaters on Friday.

The film spans the globe and utilizes a series of international landmarks as set pieces.  There’s a sequence at the Vienna State Opera House, the ornate Renaissance-era building in the heart of one of Europe’s most architecturally rich cities. There’s also a motorcycle chase in Morocco and an adrenaline fueled foot chase in London which was one of Cruise’s favorite sequences.

“It’s a city that I love and we get to create a bit of a love letter to London in this chase: you get the cobblestone streets, the fog, the Tower of London. It was a lot of fun figuring out the logistics, scouting it all, finding just the right streets and then letting the story unfold through the action,” shares Cruise.

Tom Cruise has created so many memorable characters in legendary films such as “Top Gun,” “Jerry Maguire,” “Risky Business,” “Minority Report,” “Interview with the Vampire,” “A Few Good Men,” “The Firm,” “Rain Man,” “Collateral,” “The Last Samurai,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” and “The Color of Money.”

18 of Cruise’s films have grossed more than 100 million in the United States alone, and a record 21 have grossed over 200 million globally.

“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” has already made $24M since it’s opening on Friday, according to box office estimates and is the second best opening in the M:I series.
