New Ghost Protocol Trailer Arrives
'We all have our secrets...'

28 October 2011  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo

The first trailer for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was an impressive burst of adrenalin-pumping action, and the new promo is clearly engineered to keep that tradition alive while adding just a little bit of extra plot and another moment for Simon Pegg to inject some humour. Take a look below.

 

In this instalment of Ethan Hunt And His Team Have A Very Bad Day, we find the IMF agents dealing with another round of betrayal and bombings. After a mission at the Kremlin goes spectacularly wrong thanks to a double cross and a very large explosion, Hunt (Tom Cruise) and co are told that Russia considers the incident an act of war and in response, the US government is implementing Ghost Protocol. What’s that? That would be disavowing the entire Impossible Mission Force and classifying them as renegades. When their convoy is shot up and several members are killed, the remaining team of Hunt, Brandt (Jeremy Renner), Benji Dunn (Pegg) and Jane Carter (Paula Patton) must use what resources they have left at their disposal and track down the people who are truly responsible. But is there a traitor lurking in their midst?

The likes of Ving Rhames, Josh Holloway, Michael Nyqvist, Anil Kapoor, Tom Wilkinson and Lea Seydoux are also aboard the film, which Brad Bird directed and will be out on December 26. You may start humming the iconic theme tune… now.

And before we forget, there's loads more about the film in the new issue of Empire, in shops now. Get it even if you have to break into the server room from the outside.

Spoilerific!
Fair play this looks fantastic but I really wouldn't bother watching the trailer - it gives away far too much of the plot. More

RE: There are four of us left in the IMF...?
Turned it off after 15 seconds. Teaser trailer's enough for me, thanks. The thing with thrillers is that most of the fun comes from the twists and turns. Give 'em away in the trailer and it's like pressing a pin against a balloon – all the fun escapes in one big bang. More

There are four of us left in the IMF...?
Cruise, Pegg, Patton, Rhames, Renner, Holloway. All of these are credited as members of the IMF. So clearly someone dies or someone is a traitor. Hmmmm More

I think you can put it down to the choice of Directors this 1 & the last have been story driven Directors without any real history in Action although I suppose you can make a point for Mendes in Jarhead & Road To Perdition somewhat. More

RE: Still waiting...
L: Toby Dammit ...for a proper film version of Mission: Impossible, so far it's just been Tom Cruise playing at being James Bond rather than the ensemble cast and role playing of the series. While we're on the subject of Bond, benskelly probably shouldn't get his movie news from the Sun newspaper. kay, you may have a point on the beard part...but the budget being $100 million less than it was on QOS is a fact. And the only location outside the UK is South Africa. While we get a More

Why are they always getting double-crossed? Can't they actually just do a mission rather than uncover a deadly deceit? Still, I've always felt they've gotten progressively better with each installment, and I suspect that this will finally nail the formula (MI3 nearly did it... just a gutless finale ruined it). More

Love you guys...
This is why I read the comments, spoiler heavy trailer means no watchy for watchy for me, cheers for the heads up guys. As soon as Brad Bird was named director I was excited so I was on the 'this'll be awesome' band wagon long, long ago. Hoping the soundtrack rules (Bare Island, MI:2 soundtrack, Amazing)! More

EXCITEMENT
However much they bugger about with the MI theme music it still gets me all jumpy and want to do 'spy stuff'. No idea what that means... Anyhow, this looks top (ha ha!) and Tommy C is looking like he's never gonna get old (sickening, all that hair too). Mr Pegg does his best to steal the show simply by speaking and confirming the suspicion of all Americans (bless their little hearts) that us English are a right bunch of nerdy cowards with thin legs and an a love of avoiding trouble and/or mor More

Less is more....
What a great trailer, but why oh why do we need to get spoon fed so much information about the contents of a film. This is something thats being bothering me for ages about modern trailers and indeed the amount of information film makers feel they need to release in order to sufficewnt buzz and box office. It would be a pleasure to go to my cinema for once and only know the outline of a film rather than most of the twists and turn. Perhaps I also need to stop reading Empire and other websites!!! More

RE: full of spoilers
I actually think that Rhames shows up late in the movie in some surprising way to save their ass...I'm guessing that's why they aren't showing him, because it's basically a cameo but important to the plot. More

full of spoilers
great trailer in fairness, but half the plot is gone.. between that and Empire's analysis that 'the four of them are all that remain of IMF' which means Ving Rhames defo goes bye-bye close to the start of this, to answer the above question... More

More Bondian Than Bond
After hearing that we're getting a "cheap" Bond with less action and more "drama" next time, no exotic locations and the dour Mr. Craig with a beard...somehow this movie looks all the more cool and exciting. This looks like it could be as good as the first M:I, the only one I really like. More

I really want some confirmation or denial that Ving Rhames is involved from sources other than Empire and IMDB. Other than that, this film really can't come soon enough More
