Explosive French Bootleg Trailer for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

Whoa! Gotta admit, this looks a lot better than I was expecting. Explosive, action-packed, thrilling, and yes, even sexy, but maybe that’s just the Paula Patton quotient. Take your very first gander at a lengthy teaser trailer for Tom Cruise’s latest “Mission Impossible” movie, “Ghost Protocol”, the fourth in the franchise. Animated guy Brad Bird (“The Incredibles”) steps behind the camera for his very first live-action feature-film work, and it looks like he’s brought plenty to the table. The bootleg, French trailer below.

The official trailer is expected to show up in front of “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, and not long after that, online, so stay tune to actually understand why Tom Cruise is running from explosions and climbing really, really tall buildings, and what exactly Tom Wilkinson is laying down in that limo ride.

Cruise is once again the leading man (though persistent rumors have “Ghost” being a grooming flick for co-star Jeremy Renner to take over the franchise), and co-starring Paula Patton, Tom Wilkinson, Josh Holloway, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Michael Nyqvist, Anil Kapoor, Lea Seydoux and Vladimir Mashkov.

Disappearing into theaters December 16, 2011.

Update: Official trailer below.
