The first trailer for the fourth installment of the
Mission: Impossible franchise was released June 28 online, with the debut screenings of
Tranformers: Dark of the Moon in US theaters.
The cast stars Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames, as well as Lea Seydoux ( Midnight in Paris), Anil Kapoor ( Slumdog Millionaire) and Jeremy Renner ( The Hurt Locker).
Opening with the Kremlin exploding, the "Ghost Protocol" is enacted, meaning the entire IMF spy team is shut down and Ethan Hunt must go rogue, operating undercover.
Producer/co-writer J.J. Abrams ( Super 8, Star Trek) delivers an intense action-packed promotion filled with nonstop excerpts.
The fast-cut shots include a standoff between Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner and a series of wild and daring action sequences that concludes with Cruise scaling a glass skyscraper.
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is directed by Brad Bird ( Ratatouille, The Incredibles), making his live-action debut.
Besides the iconic MI theme music, Eminem raps under a section of footage.
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol hits theaters December 14-16 in Australia, Hong Kong, Russia, Japan, North America, France and other European countries. It opens in the UK on December 26.
