A few months ago, Paramount released the first teaser trailer for Mission Impossible 4, awkwardly titled “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol“. How’s that for a mouthful of jibberish. With the release date only a couple of months away, the studio debuted a brand new full-length trailer yesterday. Director Brad Bird even appears in it to introduce the clip. What, Tom Cruise wasn’t available?
Gone is the previous hip-hop background track and back is the traditional score associated with the spy series. Why mess with a good thing, right? The music isn’t the only thing that’s changed. With a longer trailer, more action, more chases, more explosions and fights have been jammed in. Somewhere in between all that, a few plot insights have been revealed. Ethan Hunt and the remaining IMF team go rogue to clear their organization’s name. Intrigued yet?
Joining Tom Cruise for the fourth installment are Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Kegg and Josh Holloway. Filming for the film took place in various international destinations including Dubai, Prague, Moscow, Mumbai and Vancouver. Props to Vancity, my hometown, for making that list. ” Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” is scheduled to premiere in North America on December 16, 2011. Should you choose to accept this fourth mission, check out the new trailer below.
Based on the new trailer, I’m not sure if I’m itching to run to the theaters. The teaser trailer did a better job, IMHO, of creating excitement for the film. Perhaps, I’m a little biased since “Mission: Impossible III” was the best in the franchise. Even though my dear Felicity (Keri Russell) died early on, I loved it. J.J. Abrams directed that film, but stepped down for the sequel. Hopefully, with him still on as a producer, Ghost Protocol will be more watchable than that awful John Woo-directed “Mission Impossible II”. What did you think of the trailer? Are you willing to join Ethan Hunt for another impossible mission? Post all your thoughts below.
