Tom Cruise returns for a fifth outing as IMF super spy Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
As first trailers go, this one is pretty excellent. Broken down into almost three miniature trailers each of around a minute in length, the first introduces a new member of the team Rebecca Ferguson (who looks wonderfully lethal). It also sets up the main plot of the movie: the ‘good spy’ IMF vs the ‘bad spy’ Syndicate.
The second part of the trailer is a beautifully accompanied action montage, merging Fugees’ “Ready or Not” with Lalo Schifrin’s iconic Mission: Impossible theme, all to the backdrop of exciting action set-pieces.
Then comes the grand finale. Clearly not wanting to be outdone by the last Mission: Impossible, where Cruise hanged from the tallest building in the world, this time Cruise clasps the side of a cargo plane as it takes off. He reportedly had to do this eight times just to get the right shot, which will surely have a huge pay-off when the film hits cinemas around the world.
Check out Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation from July 31st this summer.
