Full Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol Trailer: Cruise vs. Renner vs. Gravity

The posters and the first teaser for Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol leaned heavily on an odd new marketing plan: Instead of simply putting the stunts and scope front and center, Paramount sold us Tom Cruise in an emo hoodie and action sequences scored to Eminem. We're happy to report, then, that the new full trailer does away with all that, making great use of Lalo Schifrin's classic Mission: Impossible theme and teasing several gargantuan-scaled set pieces — among them the total structural collapse of Moscow, a car and foot chase set during a sandstorm, and a breathtaking leap down the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. And yes, you'll get a couple more shots of Josh Holloway. After hearing about his Chris Brown dance movie, we know you needed that.
