BMW, the German luxury automaker, has announced its collaboration with the next installment of Paramount Pictures’ legendary action film franchise, “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”. The Tom Cruise-starrer would open in theaters on July 31, 2015 and would feature BMW's high performance fifth-generation M3 sports car. In addition, it also features BMW Motorrad S 1000 RR superbike.
This is the second time BMW has “accepted the mission” to lend its superior technological support to the film’s production crew, enabling it to deliver breathtaking automotive stunt scenes shot around the globe. BMW previously partnered with Paramount on the 2011 successful release of “Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol”. The film’s official trailer, released worldwide yesterday, offers fans a first glimpse of the high-adrenaline action that only Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his Impossible Mission Force (IMF) team can deliver – including spectacular driving scenes where the new BMW M3 is put through its paces. Its renowned high-performance capabilities made the fifth generation M3 sports car the perfect choice to perform precision driving sequences, the likes of which have never been seen before.
“We are delighted to again be a part of one of the most exciting action film franchises in movie history,” said Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management for BMW AG, responsible for Sales and Marketing BMW. “Dynamic performance and BMW ConnectedDrive make our BMW models the perfect cars for Ethan Hunt and his team, who use the vehicles’ ground-breaking functions and cutting-edge technology to make sure the good guys come out on top. The BMW M3 combines motorsport DNA with everyday practicality in an emotionally powerful concept quite unlike any other car.” “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” reunites Tom Cruise with “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. The film also stars Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson and Sean Harris.
