Dir: Christopher McQuarrie
Starring: Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson
On the run from the CIA, Ethan Hunt tries to prove the existence of the Syndicate, a mysterious international terrorist consortium
This was the fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible film series and it features a lengthy scene filmed at London King’s Cross station. The production team made up an entire set within the station, so it actually looks much different in the movie, but the platforms are clearly visible in the background, as well as a couple of brief glimpses of HST power cars. Showing the efforts that the production team went to, one power car has been manipulated with computer graphics and incorporates an extremely pointed wedge-shaped nose. The earlier scene at night of the ‘Vienna Houseboats’ actually used the River Lea Navigation in Bromley-by-Bow, and an LU District Line train is seen crossing the girder bridge over the river.
