With just a little over a month and a half to go until Tom Cruise and his IMF team returns to the big screen, Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. The trailer hits a lot of familiar beats from the first, with some new footage throughout, but it doesn’t make it any less thrilling. Following up Brad Bird’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocal was always going to be a challenge, but it seems Cruise, with director Christopher McQuarrie, were more than up to the task.
On top of a new trailer, Paramount has released a slew of new character posters for the film, which you can check out below.
It’s hard to imagine that this series would become what it is after Brian DePalma’s 1996 film. Even harder to imagine is that almost twenty years later, we’re even more excited to see the Mission Impossible series continue, and each film seems to get bigger than the last.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, starring Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, and Ving Rhames, opens July 31, 2015.
