It would seem that the marketing team behind Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol likes seeing Tom Cruise wearing a hood. It began with the film’s first teaser trailer, where protagonist Ethan Hunt is seen sneaking around with his head covered, and then they released a new image with the exact same hood. So guess what article of clothing is prominently featured in the film’s first poster?
What’s so strange about this one-sheet is that it seems so hastily put together in layers. It’s as though the designer said, “Okay, we need a big picture of Tom Cruise in a hood. No that’s not enough. How about we include the trademark fuse at the bottom. No, still looks to plain. I know! The same three lines of code repeating over and over again!” It looks lazy, but perhaps it only seems that way because it’s just a teaser poster. Check it out below or full size over at Yahoo!
In the new film, Ethan Hunt and his team are forced to go on the run after they are framed for a bombing at the Kremlin. Working in the shadows, the group works to not only clear their names, but to find the people who are actually responsible. Directed by Brad Bird, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol co-stars Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg, Josh Holloway, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Lea Seydoux, and Anil Kapoor.
