Happy Tom Cruise Tuesday! It’s our favorite day of the week, the day we set aside some time to celebrate Tom Cruise!
This week, we’d like to talk about the preview for M:I-Fallout – what we loved and why we’re excited for this movie to come out! We did something similar with American Made when the trailer came out, and it was lots of fun. Here’s a little bit of loveliness to get us started.
The new “Mission: Impossible” poster is here! We at Buttered Popcorn have been beside ourselves with excitement, the poster is BEAUTIFUL. It pushes all our Badass Spy Movie (TM) buttons.
More on that later! Looking at the new poster got us thinking about old posters, and how much we love the Mission movies. Our excitement was just too much to contain, and we decided we HAD to come over and make a post!
What are we up to? How about a “Throw Back Thursday” post with the most well-known “Mission: Impossible” posters? Let’s do it!!
Naturally, we’ll start with the first one – the movie that started it all!
Beautiful, right? Nothing says “spy action thriller” like a profile over the mysterious and (during the Cold War) sinister spires of some Eastern-European buildings. And the lines give us that hint of tech that says awesome gadgets are in our future. This poster is everything it needs to be!
Welcome to Tom Cruise Tuesday! It’s our favorite day of the week, the day we set aside to celebrate Tom!
We’ve got a great reason to celebrate Tom today, and it looks like Tom has a great reason to celebrate, too! As most of his fans know (as well as anybody who follows celebrity news), Tom recently injured himself while working on Mission: Impossible 6.
Many people speculated that Tom had undershot the mark and broke his ankle trying to land on top of the building he was jumping toward. Of course, we at Buttered Popcorn never doubted for an instant that Tom meant to land at the side of the building and scramble up. This is Mission: Impossible, after all! And you can bet if Ethan is jumping from one building to another, he’s trying to get away from something, or catch something, and it’s not about to be an easy task!
Naturally, soon after we made our opinions known on social media, Chris McQuarrie confirmed in his interview with Empire magazine, what we already knew: Tom was meant to hit the side of the building. Honestly, it you look at the difference, there’s no other conclusion to draw!
