'Mission - Impossible: Fallout' was my favorite movie of last year, and one of the best action movies I have ever seen. Christopher McQuarrie is one of my favorite directors in the game because of his dedication to bringing action movies away from empty-headed, CGI messes and into the practical effect-heavy and well thought out area that I love. As new cast members have signed on to MI7, he has been instagramming them out for us. His newest edition is Nicholas Hoult.
Most people know Hoult from 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and 'X-Men: First Class', and he was fantastic in both. My reference point for this role, though, is going to be his role in 'The Favourite' since, according to McQuarrie, Hoult will be a villain in this. I think he will make a great bad guy, and is a perfect addition to this new cast which includes:
Hayley Atwell was a cool addition to 'Captain America: The First Avenger'. She's a badass that was great in a fight, which works perfectly for a movie in this franchise. My only experience with Pom Klementieff is in the MCU where she plays Mantis. There isn't much to go on there, but I like her look for a Femme Fatale as the caption suggests she will be doing. And Shea Whigham? Folks? Wana talk about underappreciated character actors, Wingham is right near the top of that list. He rules in everything I have ever seen him in and I can't wait to see his role in this movie.
