Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt is on the run in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning’s new trailer that finds the notorious Impossible Missions Force agent being drawn into another job whose work will shape the arc of human history. It isn’t explained what sort of MacGuffin former IMF director Eugene Kittridge (Henry Czerny) is describing Hunt as the target of this special mission. But its ability to “control the truth” makes it a powerful enough thing that Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), and Alanna Mitsopolis (Vanessa Kirby) are all drawn into the combat for control of the thing.
Though Ethan and his allies will work together to take down the movie’s mysterious villain played by Esai Morales, the trailer makes clear that newcomer Grace (Hayley Atwell) will play a significant role as a thorn in Ethan’s side as the two jets across the globe.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is set to hit theaters on July 14th, 2023.
