Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (12/16) - Too little is known on this one, but the prospect of Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille) in the director's chair, and J.J. Abrams having a hand in the writing could mean great things. Love that subtitle, too.Adam Corn wrote:
Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol - Will see this one based on the strength of the third movie, which was by far the best in the series.
We've got our first trailer for Ghost Protocol. Thoughts?
Needs more Ving Rhames, methinks.
I don't know. Something seems off about Cruise in this trailer. There isn't a trace of the confidence or swagger that I would expect him to exude in a role like this. He looks out of place, actually, like a stranger in his own franchise.
Perhaps part of the problem is that he doesn't know how to act considering that the Mission: Impossible movies have been wildly inconsistent in tone and style. Part of the problem certainly is that he looks old and tired, when just a few years ago he was managing to keep the ravages of time at bay (although perhaps with the help of some movie magic). It's a shock to see a actor who rose to stardom when he was young and handsome suddenly have every one of his years etched into his face.
