Waiting for action movies like Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One to release a new trailer can be torture at face value. However, the wait for the latest peek at Tom Cruise and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie’s latest opus of destruction feels like it’s taken an eternity to elapse. That’s about to change, thanks to the new trailer that just landed that includes, among other things, a stunt that’s finally crazier than Cruise and Hayley Atwell’s handcuffed Fiat chase. Paramount and Skydance let loose this latest view of Ethan Hunt and the IMF team’s continuing adventure to save the world from threats that loom in the shadows.
Dead Reckoning Part One Official Trailer gives us a little more of that threat, as these new Mission: Impossible 7 details show that Esai Morales’s villain believes he knows how Ethan Hunt’s story is going to end. In a world where truth is supposedly vanishing and “war is coming,” we’re set up to expect the worst. And that theory also fits in with what we heard in last year’s first trailer for Dead Reckoning – Part One, as Eugene Kittridge (Henry Czerny) was spouting dialogue along the same lines.
Cue the moment when Ethan Hunt and Hayley Atwell’s character Grace find themselves floating in mid-air, as a train car slams into a literal cliffhanger scenario. This is what Mission: Impossible fans have been feeling while waiting for this new footage to arrive. And who could blame them, especially when this final product was absolutely worth the wait?
Well, the wait is almost over, and this latest glimpse into Mission madness is looking like another heart-stopping journey to the brink of international security. Prepare for Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning to become your new obsession for the near future. Part One lights the fuse on July 12th, with Part Two set to arrive on June 28, 2024.
