When Pixar's resident genius (as far as this blogger is concerned) decided to depart momentarily from animation and segue into action films, I was nervous. When it turned out said action film was going to be the fourth installment of the somehow popular Mission: Impossible franchise, I was still nervous. With story by Tom Cruise and J.J. Abrams, the film becomes ever more curious. Each film since the first one has seemed sort of...useless, even with the addition of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. However, in this we have both Tom Cruise and the heir apparent Jeremy Renner, who curiously doesn't get his name mentioned in the trailer, which is below. Don't expect much Oscar love from this film though, not even in the technical categories.
Also co-starring Precious's Paula Patton, Lost's Josh Holloway, and Hot Fuzz's Simon Pegg.
