New M:I movie title is Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation

Paramount said today that the fifth Tom Cruise Mission: Impossible movie will be titled Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and the movie’s trailer is due out March 23.

The studio also released a television commercial, a kind of teaser to the teaser trailer. According to the video, the title refers to the Syndicate, “a rogue nation trained to do what we do,” in the words of Cruise’s Ethan Hunt.

In the original 1966-73 television series, the Syndicate referred to the Mafia and organized crime. M:I and other shows of the era — including Mannix, a private eye drama from the same production company — avoided direct references to the Mafia.

The existence of the 21st century version of the Syndicate was teased at the end of 2011’s Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol.

Paramount originally planned to release Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation on Dec. 25, but moved it up to July 31.

Here’s the commercial released today:

UPDATE: Vanity Fair has an article how Cruise performed the signature stunt shown at the end of the video. To view it, CLICK HERE.
