WATCH: Tom Cruise’s new Mission: Impossible trailer again features Abu Dhabi

Trailer for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One shows popular locations in Abu Dhabi such as the Liwa desert and the Midfield Terminal

The new trailer for the highly anticipated Hollywood blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One has just dropped, and it’s sending waves of excitement through the UAE capital.



The action-packed preview takes us on a wild ride through stunning landscapes, with lead star Tom Cruise’s death-defying stunts leaving viewers gasping for breath. And Abu Dhabi fans of the franchise with a keen eye will definitely not miss their beloved city getting featured in the two-and-a-half minute clip.

The trailer showed popular locations in Abu Dhabi, including the Liwa desert and the Midfield Terminal. Cruise and his film crew was in Abu Dhabi for two weeks in 2021 to shoot scenes of the seventh instalment of the franchise, and even took time to visit some of the city’s landmarks, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

This is the second time Abu Dhabi is featured prominently in the franchise, after Cruise filmed an incredibly dangerous high-altitude, low-opening (HALO) jump in Abu Dhabi for the Mission: Impossible movie Fallout in 2018.

The HALO sequence has been described as one of the most visually stunning and exciting scenes in the franchise, with Cruise himself saying, “Everyone was so excited and so proud of what we all accomplished.”

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is scheduled for release on 12 July this year in the United States, with a sequel planned for release on 28 June next year.
