Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol gets its first proper trailer

“Your mission, should you choose to accept it…”

mission: impossible

Well, that didn’t take long.

After the French version of the Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol trailer leaked online on Monday, Paramount has released an official version in English.

Basically a mash-up of enticing images set to the violent tones of Eminem, the trailer sets up M:I4’s basic premise before throwing us head first into the action.

So the Kremlin building’s been blown up, and somebody needs to take the blame. That someone appears to be IMF, who are about to be branded terrorists.

Which, of course, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) isn’t happy about. So he and his team go rogue, initiate operation Ghost Protocol and attempt to root out the real culprits.

So far so awesome. This first trailer for the action fourquel keeps all manner of images barrelling onto the screen, including the requisite shots of pretty ladies and Cruise in moments of “that’s gotta hurt” scuffles.

Jeremy Renner’s new agent even gets a slick segment that nods to the first film’s ceiling-hanging infiltration - before having a scowl-off with Cruise himself.

Check out the new trailer below…

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol opens 26 December 2011.

      I am mildly interested. Curious to see how Brad Bird handles live action.

      Looked like a Mission Impossible film; heights, swinging, running from big explosions near misses. (Never beat the chopper blade from the 1st one) so er... yes. Well done. No Ving Rhames. What's up with that? Not that I dislike Simon Pegg but... I could kick his a**e accidentally. Why do we need more comic relief? Let's have tough as nails.
