Random Trivia For This Title:

  • White Widow is introduced as she delivers a tribute speech to her late mother, "Max," who she describes as a lover of paradoxes. While never clarified onscreen, the filmmakers have confirmed that this Max was indeed Vanessa Redgrave's character from the first M:I film.
  • The bathroom fight was meant to be shot in 4 days but due to the complexity of the fight it ended up being shot over 4 weeks.
  • Tom Cruise and Ving Rhames are the only actors to appear in all six "Mission: Impossible" films. Simon Pegg has been in every movie since Mission: Impossible III (2006).
  • Tom Cruise trained for an entire year to perform the HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) stunt in this film.
  • Henry Cavill improvised the arm gun reload moment in the bathroom fight.
  • Solomon Lane is the first villain in the franchise to appear in two films.
  • Henry Cavill was offered the role publicly through his Instagram by the director.
  • Rebecca Ferguson was pregnant while filming this movie. She was about seven months pregnant when filming was completed.
  • This is the first time the "f" word was used in a Mission: Impossible movie.
  • Christopher McQuarrie was the first director in the franchise to direct more than one film.
  • Jeremy Renner was not in this film, due to his commitment to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • Henry Cavill replaced Tom Cruise for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015).
  • A clause stipulated in Henry Cavill's contract forbade him from shaving his beard required for the role. During production, the producers received a phone call from Justice League producer [?] Charles Roven requesting Cavill back for some reshoots for his role as Superman. Co-producer [?] Jake Myers suggested letting Cavill shave his beard, shutting down production while he does his reshoots and then getting Warner Bros to pay $3 million for additional visual effects (digital moustache) on shots of Cavill after completing his Superman reshoots. Paramount got wind of the idea and shot it down immediately through the clause.
  • Tom Cruise did all of his stunts himself.
  • Rescuing another person in free fall while sky diving is very difficult. Hewitt says that "it takes Accelerated Free Fall instructors over 1,000 jumps to get it right and something like 70% of the people who try to qualify at the instructor level fail. Tom had just 100 jumps to perfect this."
  • Rebecca Ferguson and Simon Pegg met on the set of "Rogue Nation" and became friends. Pegg likes that Rebecca's character Ilsa Faust is a formidable match for Ethan Hunt. "It's great to see strong female characters across the movie landscape. It's way overdue."
  • Director Christopher McQuarrie calls Alec Baldwin the "funniest person on the set." Baldwin first appeared in "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation," and McQuarrie was delighted to have him back.
  • Sean Harris told the director that he could hold his breath for 45 seconds, but he had to blow air through his nose when he was upside down, quickly depleting his oxygen supply. Despite the difficulty, Harris was committed to getting the shot right.
  • While filming the chase sequence in London, Cruise broke his ankle during a stunt, but managed to get up and keep running until he was off camera. Cruise did everything he could to recover quickly. The doctors had thought his injury would take nine months to heal, but Cruise was able to start running, slowly, after just 10 weeks.
