In the podcast “Art of the cut,” Steve Hullfish talks to Eddie Eddie Hamilton, ACE, about the production process of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning and how they managed to get the total length of over four hours back to the film we can see in theaters. Go see the movie first before listening to this podcast.
Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning is an action-packed movie. Those who go to see the film can choose from different versions. We chose July 15 for a 4Dx version that was shown in one of the theaters of Pathe Zwolle. With 4Dx you sit in a chair that vibrates and moves during action scenes and everyone in the room is surprised with about twenty extra effects; smoke, water, fog, smells and you feel everything shoot by. Highly recommended for people who like an ‘extra dimension’. Just don’t be prone to car sickness.
My daughters allowed me to choose the movie for their father’s day. So we went to see it together and the great thing is: there will be another part. So the gift for the next Father’s Day is already set, too. Below is the promo with an introduction by Tom Cruise, on top of a double-decker.
