I’m not sure what the consensus is these days regarding the M:I franchise. I loved the first and third films, thought the second was a bit duff and am thoroughly looking forward to Brad Bird’s live-action debut for Ghost Protocol. What does everyone else think? Sure, the whole hanging off a high building thing has been done to death in the franchise already, but Jeremy Renner has bags of charisma, Simon Pegg improves every film he appears in and Cruise himself is clearly no slouch.

With late December’s worldwide release date fast approaching, we now have another poster and TV spot, this time from Japan. The poster, as might have been expected, makes much of Cruise and nothing much of anyone else (unless those characters down the side read, “forget Cruise, Pegg is in this one”), though the TV spot does contain perhaps a couple of new beats. Frankly, it all comes rushing past so fast it can be hard to make sense of it. One can only hope that the film is edited a little more compassionately.

Thanks to Coming Soon.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
