Mission: Impossible - Fallout picture Video

Trivia: Tom Cruise broke his ankle doing the building jump in London. He was always intended to almost miss the landing and have to pull himself up, but his foot hit the side of the building and was forcibly bent at a wrong angle. Filming was held up for seven weeks. When he limps away once he has climbed up to the roof, he's not acting - that's the result of his injury.

Searching picture

Trivia: Spoilers. You can briefly see at one point that Margot's high school mascot is an anthropomorphic catfish. In internet slang, "catfishing" is when someone pretends to be someone else online in order to "lure in" others. This is a very subtle clue to the ending, in which it is revealed that the user "fish_n_chips" was a boy who was "catfishing" Margot online.
