Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is a 2015 American action spy film written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. It is the fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible series and was preceded by Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011). It stars Tom Cruise, who reprises his role as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt. It is produced by Cruise, J. J. Abrams, and David Ellison of Skydance Productions.

Filming began on August 21, 2014, in Vienna, Austria, and concluded on March 12, 2015. The film is scheduled to be released in North America by Paramount Pictures on July 31, 2015.


After intercepting nerve gas being sold to terrorists, Impossible Missions Force agent Ethan Hunt is convinced he can prove the existence of the Syndicate, an international criminal consortium. Reporting to an IMF substation to receive his next orders, Hunt is captured by the Syndicate, but escapes a torture chamber with the help of disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust, a Syndicate operative who offers no explanation for her actions. With their existence confirmed, Hunt follows his only lead: a blond man in glasses, later identified as Solomon Lane.

CIA director Alan Hunley and IMF agent William Brandt appear before a Senate oversight committee to justify the IMF's continued existence in the face of their recklessness. Hunley demands it be disbanded and absorbed into the CIA. With Brandt unable to reveal operational details without permission from the cabinet Secretary overseeing the IMF, the committee sides with Hunley, whose calls for Hunt's capture.

Six months later, Hunt leads a CIA team to an empty safehouse as a means of passing information on the Syndicate to his friend, intelligence analyst Benji Dunn. Suspicious of Hunley's actions and believing he will kill Hunt at the first opportunity, Brandt recruits former agent Luther Stickell to find Hunt, using a likeness of Ilsa from the safehouse. Hunt arranges for Dunn to attend the opera Turandot in Vienna, recruiting him for a covert mission to locate Lane. Realizing the Syndicate plans to assassinate the Chancellor of Austria there, Hunt intervenes by wounding him first to have him taken away. Escaping with Ilsa, one of the intended shooters, he sees the Chancellor nonetheless killed by a car bomb.

Ilsa, Hunt and Dunn locate a file hidden by a Syndicate traitor on a high-security server used to regulate a Moroccan power station. Believing it to be a ledger containing the names of all Syndicate agents, the trio secure it before Ilsa betrays Hunt and Dunn. She returns to London, and passes the file to her handler, Attlee. Attlee compels Ilsa to return to the Syndicate and prove her loyalty to its leader, Lane. Regrouping with Brandt and Stickell, Hunt and Dunn follow Ilsa to London. When Lane's men abduct Dunn and Ilsa, Hunt realizes that Lane will always have a plan to acquire the files, and the only sure way to stop him is to force a confrontation. He agrees to Lane's ultimatum to abduct the British Prime Minister and use his voice print to unlock the file.

Brandt contacts Hunley and reveals their location. At a charity auction, the two to try and prevent Hunt from attacking the Prime Minister, whom they and Attlee take to a secure room. Hunt, having posed as Attlee, reveals himself and has the Prime Minister confirm the existence of the Syndicate: a classified project that sought to recruit disavowed foreign operatives to carry out clandestine missions, an initiative the Prime Minister rejected as too extreme. When the real Attlee arrives, Hunt subdues him, and he admits Lane hijacked the project and went rogue, and that Atlee has been covering up its existence ever since.

Stickell discovers the file is not a ledger of agents, but contains the location and access codes for billions of dollars in untraceable funds that Lane has been desperate to get to expand the Syndicate's operations. Hunt memorizes the data and destroys the file to force Lane to release Dunn and Ilsa in exchange for what he knows. He lures Lane into the open and into a trap. Imprisoned in a bulletproof cell, he is gassed and taken into custody.

Some time later, Hunley and Brandt return to the oversight committee to reinstate the IMF. Hunley says their original meeting gave him a pretext to let Hunt's team infiltrate the CIA and take down the Syndicate without arousing suspicion. The committee is skeptical, but agrees to reinstate the IMF. Outside, Brandt addresses Hunley as "Mr. Secretary", revealing the ruse.
