Paramount Pictures just released the official trailer for Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. The trailer features so many aspects we’ve come to expect from Mission Impossible films: Tom Cruise running at full speed, death-defying stunts and stunning locations.

There also appears to be callbacks to earlier films. There’s a whole desert sequence that’s reminiscent of Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and a train set piece that brings to mind the very first Mission Impossible film. In the trailer, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) talks about his team, and that his utmost priority is keeping them safe. “Your life will always matter more to me than my own”, he says to them. It reminds us of what happened in the first film, when he lost nearly his entire team, and how hard he’s worked to prevent that from happening since.

The main narrative involves Hunt searching for a dangerous weapon, and he needs to get to it before the bad guys do. So basically the plot of nearly every Mission Impossible film. In addition to Cruise, a whole host of familiar faces are back again. The cast includes Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson, who make up the core team. It also features Vanessa Kirby, Hayley Atwell, Cary Elwes, Henry Czerny and Esai Morales.

Christopher McQuarrie, who directed Rogue Nation and Fallout is back again in the director’s chair for both parts of Dead Reckoning. He also co-wrote the screenplay for both films, with Part Two releasing sometime next year.
