Mission: Impossible – Fallout is the latest film to get an Honest Trailer. Fallout is the latest movie in the Mission: Impossible series, and is also the sixth entry in the franchise overall. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Mission: Impossible – Fallout revolves around Ethan Hunt and his IMF team, as they take down a terrorist organization called the Apostles, who attempt to acquire and detonate three plutonium cores. The film stars Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, and of course, Tom Cruise.
Many action franchises that last as long as Mission: Impossible either end up becoming predictable or so over the top that they seem unrealistic, but the Mission: Impossible series seems to have beaten these odds over the last 20 years. While some Mission: Impossible movies are better than others, there are many people that think the series just keeps getting better with each film that comes out. Fallout not only received rave reviews, but also made a ton of money for Paramount, and even broke records for the Mission: Impossible franchise. While the film was no doubt a box office hit, sometimes these types of movies make for the best Honest Trailers.

Posting on their YouTube, Screen Junkies released their newest Honest Trailer today, this time poking fun at the latest Mission: Impossible flick. The trailer makes fun of the movie for bringing back apparently forgettable characters such as Solomon Lane and Ilsa Faust, while also critiquing the film for featuring a villainous plan similar to Thanos’ in Avengers: Infinity War. Screen Junkies also admits that Fallout is one of the best action movies of the year, but jokes that the series needs to stop before it kills Cruise. The Honest Trailer can be seen in full below:
With the success of Mission: Impossible not only at the box office, but with fans and critics alike, people can expect to get Mission: Impossible 7. Actor Simon Pegg has revealed that the franchise shows “No signs of slowing down“, but as of right now it’s all just speculation on what the film could be about. While many people are wanting McQuarrie to return to the director’s chair for a third Mission: Impossible film, McQuarrie isn’t quite ready to commit just yet.
Despite the film having some flaws, much like every Hollywood blockbuster, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is widely regarded as the best in the series, as well as the best action movie of 2018. Given the praise that this sixth film got upon its release, Mission: Impossible 7 seems to be not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Until more news about the next Mission: Impossible movie is released, fans can enjoy Mission: Impossible- Fallout on Blu-ray, as well as laugh at the Honest Trailer treatment of the film.
