It looks like the reports were true. As Transformers: Dark Of The Moon gets set to storm theatres this evening, Paramount is launching the trailer for another one of their huge franchise films, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. If you’re heading out to see Michael Bay‘s latest robot fighting film tonight, you’ll likely be seeing Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner going all action-y in the new Mission Impossible trailer as it will be showing ahead of Bay’s Transformers flick.
We saw a trailer last week but being in French, not a whole lot could be gathered from it. This time though with English being the spoken language, we can really get a grasp on the story/setting of the film, both of which look very exciting. The adrenaline fuelled trailer is backed by Eminem‘s Won’t Back Down as high octane stunts assault the screen. The whole thing is rather impressive and despite my doubts about it, I think this is shaping up to be a top notch action film.
I was a bit worried at first due to Brad Bird’s lack of experience with live action films but judging by this trailer, I think Paramount made the right decision going with Bird for the directing role. He looks like he’s going to pull it off and possibly give us the most exciting film of the series.
For those of you who can’t make it out to the theatres tonight, we have the official trailer below, and like I said above, it really does look great. The Incredibles and Ratatouille director Brad Bird leads the charge with J.J. Abrams producing and Tom Cruise heading up the cast. Supporting players include Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Josh Holloway, Tom Wilkinson, Paula Patton, Léa Seydoux and Michael Nyqvist.
December 16th is the release date for this one and it will be arriving in IMAX as well as regular theatres.
Director Brad Bird and Producer J.J. Abrams bring us the action packed, entertainment event of the holiday season with MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL. This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization’s name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this.
