Tom Cruise ramps us action in latest “Mission: Impossible” trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We’re getting excited for “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” but not for the reasons you might be thinking.

Oh, sure, tons of folks will want to line up to see Tom Cruise risk life and limb as Ethan Hunt. The shots of him hanging off of the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai, the world’s tallest skyscraper, are breathtaking. I’m more interested, however, to see how animator Brad Bird (“The Incredibles”) handles full-blown action scenes in his first livce-action effort. The latest trailer for “Impossible,” posted to Yahoo Movies, suggests Bird’s style. We have it below, but be warned … there are serious spoilers contained within:

Wow. So again, Cruise is on the lam hoping to clear his name and salvage the reputation of the entire IMF squad. Can he handle it?

Have you seen any of these films?

“Ghost Protocol” will have an early IMAX opening on Dec. 16 before going wider on Dec. 21. Fans should be lining up around the block for that, as Warner also plans to sneak peek the opening prologue from Chris Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” ahead of Bird’s feature.

Exciting times at the theaters. Are you ready?
