Tom Cruise & Christopher McQuarrie Reflect On The First MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE In New 25th Anniversary Clips

For the 25th Anniversary of Mission: Impossible, star Tom Cruise and MI7 director Christopher McQuarrie recently sat down to reflect on the release of the now-iconic franchise launching pad.

Earlier this week, we shared details on the Mission: Impossible 25th Anniversary Collector's Edition Blu-ray, and ahead of Saturday's celebration, Paramount Home Entertainment has now shared six exclusive interview clips with 3x Academy Award-nominated star/producer Tom Cruise and director/screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie reflecting on the first film's release. 

While Cruise never intended to make a follow-up when the film was released on May 22, 1996, the now-iconic actioner has spawned five blockbuster sequels and is currently in production on two more, the untitled Mission: Impossible 7 and 8

In addition to a completely remastered version of the film, the combo set also includes an exclusive car decal and a gallery of the original trailers for the first six Mission: Impossible films.

Check out the interview clips below and keep scrolling for more details on the Blu-ray Collector's Edition!
