'We all have our secrets...'
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.
