UPDATED 3/23 12:15pm PST: The trailer for the film has now been released! Watch it below.

Original Story: The fifth installment of Tom Cruise’s action film series Mission: Impossible — loosely based on the 1960s television series of the same name — is hoping to return to a degree of prominence as a summer blockbuster when it gets released in just about four months’ time. While we hadn’t seen nor heard much about the film and what it’ll entail, that changed this past weekend.

Yesterday, Paramount Pictures and Skybound Entertainment released our very first look at the new film in the form of a sixty-second teaser for a forthcoming trailer, which is expected to drop later today. The title for the film is Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and looks to be one of the most ambitious films in the entire series thus far. Watch the first look that the studios released below.

In addition to returning series stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames, Rogue Nation will also feature Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson, and Sean Harris. The story seems to revolve around Ethan Hunt’s discovery of a group called the “syndicate,” which counteracts much of what the Impossible Missions Force tries to do. The stakes look to be very high as far as the series goes, and franchise fans will likely applaud the return of Ving Rhames’ character, Luther Stickell, who — aside from Ethan Hunt — is the only remaining series character that’s been around since Brian De Palma’s first film released in 1996.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), and  released on July 31st. For more on the film as it develops, keep an eye on GeekNation!
