Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1 looks like it will have a little bit of everything: horses, a submarine, train, swords, boats, and car chases. Obviously, masks will play a role, too (they’re a series tradition), though those weren’t noticeable in the newest trailer for the upcoming action movie.
Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt will also have to protect his friends once again during a dangerous mission. It’s a voice and figure from the first film of the Mission: Impossible franchise who sets the tone for the trailer–Eugene Kittridge, as portrayed by Henry Czerny. “Our lives are the sum of our choices. And we cannot escape the past,” Kittridge says. “Ethan, this mission of yours is going to cost you, dearly.”
Kittridge is also the one who tells Ethan that “the world’s coming after you.” The teaser also sheds some light on Dead Reckoning Part 1’s villain played by Esai Morales, who tells Ethan he “has no idea the power I represent.” This eventually leads to Ethan telling the antagonist that he’ll go anywhere to kill him, before the trailer cuts to Ethan riding a motorcycle off a cliff. Cruise has apparently had that particular stunt in his mind for Mission: Impossible for years.
The Dead Reckoning Part 1 trailer also showcases some more footage from writer-director Christopher McQuarrie wrecking a 70-ton locomotive. Near the end, Ethan is even hanging off a dismantled train car (giving off some Nathan Drake vibes).
In addition to the trailer, Paramount unveiled a new poster for the movie that can be seen below. Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1 premieres July 12 in theaters.
