Before the theatrical debut of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One next week, fans now have the opportunity to revisit Ethan Hunt’s (Tom Cruise) past escapades from the comfort of their homes. Amazon offers a 4K Steelbook collection associated with the franchise, featuring individual releases of the first five films. The freshly designed covers lend a novel appeal, letting audiences bolster their collections with the latest renditions of these exhilarating blockbusters. From the original Mission: Impossible to Rogue Nation, most of Hunt’s saga is revived in stunning detail.
FILMSWEEP VIDEO OF THE DAY
In 1996, the ‘Mission: Impossible’ series transitioned from television to the big screen, introducing Hunt as a novice agent entangled in a conspiracy. Directed by Brian De Palma, the narrative revolves around a double agent within MI6 leaking critical information to adversaries. With no escape, Ethan must lean on Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) to recover data files threatening his spy agency’s existence. Besides his memorable ceiling-hang while the iconic theme played, Hunt established himself as an action legend.
Twenty-two years later, Paramount Pictures released the latest film in the series, Mission: Impossible – Fallout. After two decades, Cruise’s portrayal of Ethan Hunt significantly evolved from his initial introduction. With his original team, the resourceful agent has to prevent John Lark (Henry Cavill) from obtaining the means to create nuclear bombs capable of annihilating life as we know it. The sequel garnered over $790 million globally in 2018.

All great adventures must reach their conclusion, and Tom Cruise is slated to portray Ethan Hunt for the final times in the upcoming two series installments. Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One sets Hunt against Gabriel (Esai Morales), a formidable terrorist bent on crushing his opponents and releasing his malevolent plot upon the world. Aiding him is Paris (Pom Klementieff), a proficient assassin who could give Hunt a close contest in hand-to-hand combat. After the dust settles, Cruise will make his last appearance as Ethan Hunt in next year’s Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two.
