Is there really a movie titled Mission: Impossible - Rouge Nation?

No, there is not. The correct spelling for that next-to-last word in the title is Rogue, not Rouge. But, interchanging the letters g and u will slip right by a spelling checker program and has to be caught by a sharp-eyed human proofreader. It’s a reminder to be careful when preparing visual aids like PowerPoint slides for your speech.

The title is wrong in a review at Made In Hollywood. It also shows up in listings by movie theaters in Minnesota (IMAX), Australia, Hong Kong, and Ireland. Movie Madness Trailers even put that wrong title on a bunch that items they put out at YouTube: #1, #2, #3, etc.

If there really was a Rouge Nation movie, it might look like an extended version of the video for Taylor Swift’s song Bad Blood.
