The minute-long teaser for the recently titled ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ which dropped yesterday gave us a taste of what to expect from the fifth installment in Tom Cruise’s biggest franchise. And it was delicious.
Today’s trailer confirms we can have our cake and eat it too.
Watch it now!
Damn. Isn’t that shit great? I have high hopes for Ethan Hunt & team’s latest “Impossible” adventure following ‘Ghost Protocol,’ the franchises best film since the original in 1996 (Damn that makes me feel old…).
“You want to bring down the Syndicate? It’s Impossible.”
Perfect. An Impossible Mission for the recently disbanded IMF (Impossible Mission Force), courtesy of CIA stooge Alec Baldwin. Just as the Syndicate, described as an anti-IMF, seems to be gaining more power.
With a new (hopefully) ally played by Rebecca Ferguson, Hunt and his team are again off-the-grid with no support, fighting Hunt’s equivalent of 007’s S.P.E.C.T.R.E.
So, what we’ve got here is a lot of new action, a few plot points (Damn you, Alec Baldwin!), and some real footage of Luthor (Ving Rhames) and Agent Brandt (Jeremy Renner) who were mostly absent in yesterday’s teaser. But don’t worry, the new trailer still has plenty of Benji (Simon Pegg).
And that plane stunt at the end… with Hunt yelling at Benji to open the door (no, the other door!) hits classic Hunt & Benji notes while throwing Cruise into his craziest stunt yet.
Hunt and his team will have to take on “The Syndicate” when ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ is released on July 31st.
