Take a look behind the creation of the AI featured in Mission: Impossible-Dead Reckoning Part One. Light the fuse!
Those who have seen Mission: Impossible-Dead Reckoning Part One know the terrifying AI featured in the film. It could be argued that the AI itself is a character all on its own. While we are some time away from the devastating artificial intelligence that the film portrays, it serves as a warning as to an existential threat we may face in the future. And it couldn’t have come at a more topical time.
Paramount Pictures has today unveiled a brand new featurette to go alongside the film. In it, we get to go behind the scenes at the creation of the AI that we see giving Tom Cruise and his team so much trouble during the 161-minute run time. Let’s take a look:
Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team embark on their most dangerous mission yet. To track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands. With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake. And dark forces from Ethan’s past closing in, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission. Not even the lives of those he cares about most.
Mission: Impossible-Dead Reckoning Part One is currently playing in cinemas across the globe.
