Hold my bike! Tom Cruise amazes fans in new 'Mission Impossible 7' trailer
- The first trailer for 'Mission Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One' has arrived
- Tom Cruise, 59, returns as Ethan Hunt while Esai Morales is the antagonist
- The film is slated to release on July 14, 2023
The first trailer for 'Mission Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One' has arrived and viewers have been captivated once again by Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt, who embarks on a cool new adventure to save the world.
Meghan O'Keefe, deputy editor at Decider couldn't decide between what looked better - Rebecca Ferguson sporting an eye patch and aiming with a sniper rifle or the actor wielding a sword on a bridge.
Meanwhile, another Twitter user couldn't stop gushing about how they couldn't do anything but watch the new 'Mission Impossible' trailer since it arrived.
Yvette Nicole Brown, who's known for her work on shows like 'American Guy' simply expressed her enthusiasm, saying "Yes, please", and sharing a link to the trailer.
Another Twitter user engaged in a rhetorical conversation saying that just when one thought the new trailer couldn't get crazier than the previous film, Tom Cruise asked viewers to hold his motorcycle and literally jumped off a cliff.
The trailer includes the usual gamut of chase sequences, hand to hand combat scenes, and shots of European streets. It starts with Hunt being told that his days of fighting for the greater good are over. Then we snippets of the villains played by Esai Morales and Vanessa Kirby. Hunt's IMF director Eugene Kittridge tells him that the spy is now fighting for an ideal that doesn't exist.
Soon, the trailer shifts to shots of an expansive desert, as the IMF agents take on a new evil, leading to some intense face-offs.
Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Ferguson return while Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, and Cary Elwes join the cast as new characters.
The film suffered delays with both the 59-year-old actor and the director Christopher McQuarrie contracting COVID. It was originally slated to be released on September 30, 2022, but will now hit screens on July 14, 2023. The next instalment in the franchise has had its release date pushed back from July 7, 2023, to June 28, 2024.
