Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

Good. Glad they haven't forgotten about Ving Rhames. He's the only link, besides Cruise, to the first film. Glad Pegg is returning, too. Maybe there are some others still to be announced? JJ is still on as producer, so you never know.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

This wouldn't happen, but you know what could fix the issue of the first film's villain that upset a lot of Mission Impossible fans? Have Jeremy Renner play Jim Phelps, Jr. He's under the shadow of the fact that his father (and stepmother who was younger than him) were traitors. And if he takes over the franchise, the names of his team members can be Rollin Hand, Willy Armitage and Barney Collier. Thus the "character continuity" of the TV series is preserved.

Also, random rumor of the day: Kristin Kreuk is auditioning for one of the IMF team members.

Paula Patton (Deja Vu, Precious) has beat out Kristen Kreuk and Lauren German for the female lead in this movie.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

Here is the first trailer, and speaking as someone who was initially hesitant about another installment after not liking the third movie I have to say that this is truly impressive looking. Looks like we're looking at a potential hit.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

The trailer felt pretty generic, and I hated the rap song in the middle of it, luckily they ended on the MI theme instead.

I think the problem I have with it is that it looks action packed(and likely is) while I would prefer less action and more IMF trickery.

I have hope that Brad Bird will deliver something better written and more true to the old show than the movies have done so far, but judging from the trailer that might not be the case.

^Naturally the trailer is going to emphasize the big action stuff to lure in the audience. That doesn't mean there won't be more caper/sting stuff in the movie. Those parts would be less visual, more involved, and wouldn't play as well in the trailer. So you can't assume the trailer is representative.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

Christopher is correct. The first trailer here is obviously meant to both tease and grab your attention with action cuts and a tease of the plot which this trailer did. I had no problem with the Eminem song but then I'm a fan.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

Here's the second trailer...some new footage combined with the old and an introduction from director Brad Bird.

Wish Ving Rhames would've come back also.

Hmm... that trailer makes me worry about the fate of Ving Rhames's character. According to IMDb and Wikipedia, he is in the film -- but maybe not the whole film, judging from what we saw here.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

*looks at IMDB*
Oh, he does have a part.
His lack of a presence in the trailers as one of the main team members then is indeed worrisome.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

I'm guessing Luther is going to be Ethan's go to guy for his weapons and what not. I am pretty sure it was announced before hand that he will have an extremely limited role in the film. I could be misremembering this.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

This is the closest thing I could find to an "official" announcement, but the video they link to has been taken down.

Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

First review I've seen, and says it's the best one yet.
http://www.darkhorizons.com/reviews/...host-protocol/

I don't quite agree with his assessment of the 3rd movie though. Yeah it may have just been a glorified Alias episode, but that still puts it head and shoulders above the vast majority of lame, overblown action movies that are released nowadays.
