Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Trailer

Cool. Brad Bird (Iron Giant, The Incredibles) directs his first live action film with this fourth instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise. Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt, and brings his usual jumping, running and serious talk with him. Simon Pegg also comes back, after showing up as geek support in the excellent MI3, although seeing him here as an action man field agent looks a bit odd. Ving Rhames returns too, and Lost’s Josh Holloway, and The Hurt Locker’s (and The Avengers’ Hawkeye) Jeremy Renner also help round out the cast.

Cruise looks like a DJ in the freeze frame above. It opens on December 16.
