Where was Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation filmed?


The new installment of the action spy films Mission Impossible, it's already the fifth from a franchise that travels a lot in every episode of the saga. It's been almost 20 years since the first movie of the series was released, in 1996. The last one, nicknamed Ghost Protocol, happened to be the most international part of all of them. It included spectacular sequences from different places around the globe. We could see from Tom Cruise climbing the tallest building in the world in Dubai, to the Kremlin blowing up in Moscow.

This time, Morocco is the star country where Mission Impossible was filmed. The other main shooting locations, though less exotic, are located in the United Kingdom and Austria. As usual, this post no contains spoilers:
