Tom Cruise is hanging off the side of a plane which can only mean one thing – the new Mission: Impossible is almost upon us.
Until now, this fifth instalment has simply been known as Mission: Impossible 5, but the action flick has finally got its official name: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Not to be confused with Rogue One, Disney’s Star Wars spin-off…

Especially if the mission involves a group of people trained to be impossible to outwit, who are carrying out their own impossible missions. Clear as mud.
