Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation Character Posters

Paramount unveiled a bunch of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation character posters today, showcasing cast members Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames and, in our first good look at the film's apparent primary villain, Sean Harris. Presumably there's a Simon Pegg poster still to come. (Update: Sure enough, a Pegg poster has materialized!) The last movie, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, also advertised this way. I like the character posters because they serve to emphasize the team nature of Mission: Impossible, which was a staple of the TV series, but took a backseat to Tom Cruise action stardom in the first three theatrical films. I was very happy to see it return in Ghost Protocol, and I'm hoping that dynamic continues in the new film, which sees the Impossible Missions Force taking on an antagonist familiar to fans of the show, the mysterious Syndicate. opens July 31. A second trailer is set to hit tomorrow. Watch the superb first one here.
