Mission: Impossible – Fallout director explains why those dramatic trailer scenes were cut

Mission: Impossible – Fallout‘s main trailer ended with a dramatic shot of Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) heading towards a truck in a helicopter, seemingly with no escape.

However, if you were hoping to find out how Ethan escaped that sticky situation, you might be waiting for a while as that scene didn’t even make it into the final version of the movie – and it wasn’t even the only big sequence missing.

“There’s also one where the cable snaps when he’s hanging from a cable in the Grand Palais,” writer/director Christopher McQuarrie confirmed to Digital Spy, adding that it was mainly down to there being “too much action in the movie”.

“We put together this big, giant film and we were testing the movie, we tested it four times before we finally finished it, and there was just so much action in the movie. We had to choose what was going to stay and what will go,” he noted.

Fortunately all that effort that went into shooting those major action sequences won’t go to waste, as McQuarrie promised that we’d see “glimpses of some of that stuff” on the home release.

“I didn’t do an extended cut. The movie you see is the director’s cut, I really believe that whatever you see in theatres is what the process delivered. But there were some moments that we worked so hard on and they were so beautiful, we put together a little gift basket for people on the DVD,” he outlined.

McQuarrie has also been explaining why Jeremy Renner didn’t come back for Fallout and whether or not he would return for Mission: Impossible 7.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout is in UK cinemas now and is released in US cinemas on July 27. Book tickets here.
