First Dangling Photos From Mission: Impossible 5; First Official Still From U.N.C.L.E.
It's been a big few days for images from upcoming spy movies based on classic TV shows. Last week we saw some pictures of Tom Cruise familiarizing himself with Mission: Impossible 5's Vienna locations prior to shooting beginning this week, and yesterday various news outlets have provided our first glimpses of Ethan Hunt's latest dangling exploits from that shoot! That's right, the second question everyone always asks when a new Mission: Impossible movie starts shooting (after what hairstyle will Cruise sport) is what will Cruise dangle from? And, thanks to Dark Horizons, we've now got a pretty idea that at least one thing he'll dangle off of this time around is the Vienna State Opera House. (As far as I can tell, these images originated on The Daily Express.) Cruise's partner in dangling here is actress Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules). Presumably the first image is just practice in comfortable clothes, and the gown in the second one is what she'll be wearing in the scene.
But those weren't the only spy images to debut in the last few days. The Comic Book Movie (via HMSS) has a picture from the new issue of Empire billed as the first official still from Guy Ritchie's Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie. While unofficial behind-the-scenes shots have been all over the Internet since shooting began, it's cool to finally see an officially approved image of Armie Hammer (as Illya Kuryakin), Alicia Vikander and Henry Cavill (as Napoleon Solo) in the Sixties-set spy movie. And I think it looks great! The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was recently pushed back from January 2015 to August 2015, so we've got a while to wait yet. But the second half of next year will bring us U.N.C.L.E., Mission and Bond all in a period of a few short months!
