I only barely know what’s going on in this trailer. It’s a leaked trailer, it’s in French, and apparently it’s recorded by someone in the midst of an apoplectic fit. But it’s interesting.
The Mission Impossible series is an interesting study in films and sequels. The first one is quite good — a little dated now, but still very good and highly entertaining. The second one, directed by John Woo, is fucking atrocious and the less said about it, the better. The third one is a pretty divisive picture, as is the case with a lot of JJ Abrams projects. Personally, I loved it. It was full of illogical, fast-paced fucknuttery, but it had a superb cast and some wicked action sequences, and it was just fun, damn it.
The fourth entry has another monster cast — Cruise, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner, Léa Seydoux, Josh Holloway, and Michael Nyqvist. It’s supposed to have some absolutely ridiculous stunts. To make things even more interesting, it’s directed by Brad Bird (The Iron Giant). Anyway, here’s the blurry, leaked trailer, dubbed in French. Good luck in figuring out what the hell is going on. From what I can tell, Tom Cruise punches a lot of people and things explode.
