BMW to extend partnership with the ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie franchise
Munich/Los Angeles: After BMW’s immensely successful partnership with Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol in 2011, BMW today confirmed its role as exclusive worldwide automotive partner of the next installment of Paramount Pictures’ legendary action film franchise, “Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation”. The film will be in theaters from 31 July, 2015.
The film’s official trailer, released worldwide yesterday, offers fans a first glimpse of the high-adrenaline action flick starring Tom Cruise, including a thrilling scene where the new BMW M3 is put through its paces.
