Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol 2011 Movie Trailer

 

Are you ready for another mission?

It’s hard to believe that the Mission Impossible franchise is going on its FOURTH film! Where did all the time ago? It’s not too surprising that the franchise has been so successful, perhaps more than any other television property, Mission Impossible is best suited for feature films. What’s interesting about the franchise is that each film is incredibly distinct and unique in it’s own right. Tom Cruise recently clarified his vision for the series, stating that each film exists in it’s own universe. That they aren’t really connected. Despite the presence of Cruise’s character ,Ethan Hunt and also Ving Rhames character Luther Stickell. When I first heard about the project, it was being billed as a transition film with Jeremy Renner taking over the reigns of the franchise. But what I’ve seen so far in the trailers indicate that this film is still a Tom Cruise starring vehicle. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

I thought Mission Impossible 3 was the best film of the franchise so far. That film was directed by J.J. Abrams, who is serving as a producer on this film. MI3 utilized the concept of a team of IMF agents better than the previous films. I think that’s the best way to approach the material, as an ensemble.

Based on the trailers, this latest installment features some great stunts.The movie also will feature sequences filmed exclusively for IMAX. Which seems pretty cool to me. Another interesting aspect to the film is that it is being directed by Brad Bird, who is primarily known for his work in animation. Specifically as the director of Pixar films The Incredibles and Ratatouille. He follows in the impressive footsteps of Brian De Palma, John Woo and J.J. Abrams.

Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Josh Holloway, Tom Wilkinsen and Ving Rhames. The film is scheduled for release December 16, 2011. Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol is directed by Brad Bird and written by Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec and Christopher McQuarie.

 

Official Synopsis:

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.
