An English-language trailer is supposed to debut later this week, but if you just can't wait for it, here's the French trailer for the 4th installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise, titled Ghost Protocol, which sees the return of regulars Tom Cruise, and Ving Rhames, as well as the addition of newcomers Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner, and others, with Renner's role here being Cruise's heir apparent, as this might be his last go-round with the franchise.
Also, Brad Bird directed this one, his first live-action film, after directing animated critical and crowd-pleasers like The Incredibles and Ratatouille.
The film opens December 16th, and I gotta say, despite the language barrier, I'm liking what I see here.
Watch it now before it disappears (h/t The Playlist):
