The Cruise is heading back to action territory this year for the fourth film in the Mission: Impossible series and the first official trailer has just landed.
What can we really say about Cruise? A superstar who made the mistake of actually letting people in on the secret that he is actually a crazy person, he hasn’t had anything approaching a leading man success since M:I III back in 2006. He’ll be hoping to turn that all around with the latest entry in the franchise – Ghost Protocol and judging by the action packed trailer it might just be doable.
The fourth film is directed by Brad Bird – who will forever hold a place in my heart for the creation of one of Pixar’s finest achievements; The Incredibles. Here, he takes on his first live action directing job while there’s some help on the story from the likes of Cruise, M:I III director Abrams and some unproven TV writers...
Cruise is joined on screen by the returning Simon Pegg (who looks more menacing than you might expect with a gun) and the always delightful Jeremy Renner.
There are many moons to go until the December release of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol but this is a strong early showing and we can’t wait to see what Brad Bird has cooked up for us.
