Why am I excited for this movie? Because I like the first one and love the third one. Because Tom Cruise, despite being a fucking trainwreck of a person and quite possibly an alien from another dimension bent on subjugating our species and devouring our brains, is a great action star. Because I’m excited to see what Brad Bird can do with a live-action cast. Because Tom fucking Wilkerson is in it. Because Jeremy fucking Renner is in it.
Because Simon Pegg looks like he’s gonna fuck someone up, and that’s something you’re just not gonna see very often. And Paula Patton, and God knows the world needs more Paula Patton.
I’m just saying, there are some good reasons to be excited. Not the least of which is the utterly ridiculous looking stunt that takes place on the Burj Khalifa building in the United Arab Emirates.
So yeah. There’s some cool going on here, and now we have it in English, and not blurry as my Sunday mornings.
