New Mission: Impossible Fallout Feature Focuses On Henry Cavill's Character (And His Stache)

mustachegate in Mission: Impossible - Fallout

The wait for the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise has been long and full of twists and turns. Interest in the new movie started growing in 2017 when Tom Cruise broke his ankle doing a crazy stunt for Mission: Impossible -- Fallout then continued to heighten as we learned more about how that film was intertwined with reshoots on Justice League, all thanks to the growth of Henry Cavill's mustache. While we've seen plenty of footage from the movie in the time since, the latest feature from Paramount gives us a better look at Henry Cavill's character, who is "something of a wild card." Check him and his now-famous mustache out, below.

In Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Henry Cavill plays August Walker, a dude with a dislike for Ethan Hunt, who will be going against the CIA's wishes to complete a mission in the new movie. Both characters should be opposite of one another, and Henry Cavill previously mentioned that both men will be at odds in the new movie, as well, noting,

Ethan believes that whatever Walker is doing, it's not helping. Ethan Hunt is a hero, the guy who makes sure everyone stays alive. Walker thinks the way Ethan carries out his business is ultimately more of a threat to the mission and more of a threat to the greater good.

They two will clash, of course, and we've already seen Hunt and Walker fighting in a memorable --and dazzlingly bright -- bathroom sequence. There's actually a lot we've already seen from the movie, including the shot where Cruise famously injured himself, causing production to shut down, and another helicopter sequence that also includes Henry Cavill's new character. Despite the fact that we've seen quite a bit of footage from the upcoming sequel, this video is still chock full fun stuff, so give it a watch, already.

Namely, if you want to learn more about the cast, there's a lot to unpack, and it's all part of what Ving Rhames is calling a "symphony of actors" in this behind-the-scenes look at the movies, which also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin.

Although nary a word about Justice League is mentioned here, the mustache is front and center, and director Christopher McQuarrie recently addressed mustachegate in an interview. But if you'd like to check out the infamous 'stache in all its glory, go see Mission: Impossible -- Fallout when it hits theaters July 27th.
