The second and probably final trailer for ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ was released last night (hd copies here), and it seems that, for the fourth movie in a row, Tom Cruise has to spend the entire time clearing his name. Doesn’t anyone at his spy agency find that suspicious? When is someone gonna say, “Wow, Tom Cruise sure does get framed a lot, don’t you think.” I would have just fired him by now. I don’t know if he just has bad luck or what but he really seems to be way more trouble than he’s worth.
Warner Brothers will attach a 6-minute clip of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in front of all IMAX versions of ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’ when it opens in IMAX theaters on December 16th (it opens on regular screens 5 days later), similar to the way they showed the entire opening bank robbery scene of ‘The Dark Knight’ as a trailer of sorts in front of ‘I Am Legend’. There’s no word what the footage will show, but it will almost definitely be enough to make me wish I was rather watching that than MI4.

The trailer for ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’ will premiere in front of ‘Transformers: As If It Matters Because These Are All The Same’ starting tomorrow night, but an early bootleg copy has leaked onto this French website for reasons that are probably explained in French.
If this is any indication, it seems (the great) Brad Bird was more than up to the task in his live-action directorial debut. Tom Cruise is doing wildly dangerous stunts (really), there looks to be more Simon Pegg this time, with plenty of Josh Holloway being handsome and Jeremy Renner poised to take the franchise over starting with ‘MI:6′. It also promises “Re-pensez L’Imposible”, which sounds appropriate.
