‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One’ trailer: fans hail sequel as “movie of the summer”

Ethan Hunt is back in July

A trailer has been released for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One – check it out above.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the seventh installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise sees Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) confront faces from the past as a new weapon threatens to wipe out humanity.

Alongside Cruise, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Henry Czerny and Ving Rhames reprise their roles from previous outings. New additions to the cast include Hayley Atwell, Esai Morales, Shea Whigham and Pom Klementieff.


A synopsis reads: “In Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, Ethan Hunt and his IMF team embark on their most dangerous mission yet: to track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands.

“With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, and dark forces from Ethan’s past closing in, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission – not even the lives of those he cares about most.”

McQuarrie directed both parts of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning back-to-back, with the sequel set to be released on June 28, 2024.

After the trailer debuted on Wednesday (May 17), fans have described it as the “biggest movie of the summer”.

“I’m pretty sure that film is going to dominate the box office once released,” another wrote. You can check out more reactions below.
