Trailer Blazer: 'Mission: Impossible III,' 'Miami Vice'

161034__mi3_lMission: Impossible III (May 5, 2006) You know the drill. Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise, left) has a third mission, and it’s pretty damn near impossible. This time, Capote‘s Philip Seymour Hoffman plays the baddie, and he’s threatening Ethan’s woman (Michelle Monaghan). Nary a pane of glass goes unbroken, nor municipal bridge or roadway that lacks a devastating explosion when Cruise is in town. Watch as he slides down the side of a building, misses getting beheaded by a fighter jet by mere inches, and impersonates a priest. The familiar theme song is pumping, the action sequences look hot, of course, but, again, who gave Felicity a gun?

Miami Vice (Summer 2006; enter your date of birth for access to the trailer) There are only two snippets of dialogue in the first trailer for Michael Mann’s feature-film adaptation of his ’80s TV hit, and neither is especially encouraging. At the start of the quick-cut teaser, Crockett (Colin Farrell) says: "You understand the meaning of the word foreboding? As in badness is happening right now…" Then, at the end, Tubbs (Jamie Foxx) says: "Smooth — that’s how we do it…" In between is a jarring, though familiar array of explosions, cigarette boats, and neon-lit scenery. No sign of the ladies (28 Days Later‘s Noemie Harris and Geisha‘s Gong Li reportedly play love interests), or — sadly — of Jan Hammer’s addictive, percussive theme song, though MTV’s catchy mash-up of Jay-Z’s "Encore" and Linkin Park’s "Numb" sets the appropriate, "foreboding" mood.

    yeah!! keri russell is hot! too bad she’s hardly in the trailer but it’s nice to see she’s getting good roles in big movies!! YEAHHHH

    Looks so good! I hope J.J. gives us the best of the three…

  • Lyssa

    Keri Russell (and I don’t take anything away from her as an actress by saying this) mostly got a role in MI3 because JJ is VERY loyal to his people.
    And I wouldn’t judge Miami Vice until I see a more extended trailer. It’s Michael Mann, for crying out loud- the man knows how to do the whole cops and robbers thing.

  • sharon

    Oh please…Colin Farrell as Crockett??? Don’t get me wrong I think he’s a fine actor, and not bad on the eyes, but Don Johnson has this part locked down for eternity.

    MI3 looks awesome. Philip Seymour Hofman looks like a fantastic chioce for the villian, and I’m pumped that JJ is doing this one. Should be a lot better than 2.

    MI:3 should be a fun ride with JJ behind the wheels as long as they keep Tom quiet during the press junket. His craziness during the lead-up to War of the Worlds ruined it for me because I kept thinking “I hope the aliens kill him soon…”
    Miami Vice remade by Michael Mann…I hope its a fantastic reinvention. His track record is pretty impressive, so I’m willing to give it a shot.

  • David Shane

    Remember people- Michael Mann invented and wrote the original Miami Vice. So obviously he is the absolute best choice to direct the remade, updated version. It’s simple math on this one. And yes, the dialouge was beyond corny and I don’t know a single person questioning not questioning this cast, but if it Mann-handled (get it?), that’s the best we can hope for.
