Hi all! Reviving a dormant thread. I normally don't post links to my site outside of the Budget Bond Collectors Resource thread, but I Just wanted to let folks know that I did a post on alternatives for previous Ethan Hunt jackets today. You can see it here:
I gave a shout out to the fine folks here on AJB for providing so many of the details on the various jackets. Most of the credit for the research goes to those members.
Matchless currently have a Easter promo (via a code) on the green Craig jacket
Thanks. Unfortunately they don't subtract the VAT for shipments to the United States.
Digging it. The wife would kill me in an extremely painful manner if I were to buy ANOTHER jacket, though.
After a low rez leaked over the weekend, Paramount went ahead and released the full trailer.
Here it is:
It looks as excellent as we've come to expect! 😊
The shots of Cruise riding the horse atop of these high dunes in full gear is just sth else…
I'm just happy we're getting Henry Czerny back as Kittredge from the first film. One of the few mistakes of this franchise was in not keeping him around as an agitator.
I'm amazed how little he's aged.
That looks amazing! Glad they went with more of a "slow burn" pace at the start of it. @Gymkata I hope you don't mind I shared it on my IG account, but I gave you a shout out for sharing it (I didn't know it was out until I saw your post!).
Edit: just watched it again, and I agree it's good to have Czerny return. Also, that little sleight of hand trick Cruise does with the key is a nice call back to his trick with the NOC list disc in the first movie.
And all hail Pirate Ilsa!!! 😁
The trailer looks spectacular and the audience reception is unlike anything i have ever seen compared to a Bond film.
Sometimes i feel like MI has more cinematic 007 vibes than the actual 007 movies of late.
I couldn’t help but see Craig era references in the trailer - don’t get me wrong, it looks very good, and I know there are only so many way you can do stunts, but there was a roof-top train fight a La Patrice in SF, a ‘sillouted’ fight like Bond/Patrice in the building fight from SP, a car chase with black cars no doors with Ethan like DC in QOS and a comedy car chase in Italy with a Fiat 500 (old version) which reminded me of SP car case in Rome, the forests looked like the NTTD forests too!
That was nice of you to do but not necessary. All I did is embed a YouTube link. The credit should go to Paramount, not me. :)
Great trailer. I'm really looking forward to this. It might just cleanse my palate of the lingering bitter after-taste from last autumn's long-anticipated franchise/action/spy movie installment 😎
Yes my palate could do with a good cleanse as well😀
I am looking forward to this more than I was for NTTD. McQuarrie and Cruise have a proven record of delivering exhilarating action films. The callbacks to previous MI films (and a couple Bond films) look fun and in no way lessen my anticipation.
Depressing that we have to wait until next year for the film. It was to originally come out in July, 2021.
Back to the fashion, the looks at the Matchless jacket are nice.
I didn't know a new Spy Kids movie came out last fall!
@Westward_Drift Those photos are from my Instagram! 🤣
@canoe2 Yes, they are. I should have credited you, John. Mea Culpa. Thank you for saving me the trouble of taking screen shots, which would have been these two shots (within a frame or two) since it's our only look at the jacket in the trailer.
By the way, in your update of the Spectre BC jacket alternatives maybe you should update "Meesta Bawnd" to his new username of "The Bond Vivant".
No need to apologize my friend! I just thought it was funny, So many of the screenshots I've used for the website are now being used everywhere by everyone that I just gave up caring. I honestly thought that these MI ones were already out in the "public domain" and you found them in a search.
By the way, in case anyone missed it (or cares), my old IG account was hacked. So I've created a new one (@iconic_alternatives). Not trying to self promote, but I want to make sure that any of you that follow the old account are aware that it is no longer under my control and should be considered very unsafe. My first priority to is to make sure no one else's accounts are put at risk because of this. The old account used a black "IA" avatar and the new one is blue, to help tell the difference.
And thank you for letting me know about Meesta Bawnd/The Bond Vivant. I'll make that update ASAP.
Here are some higher res versions of similar/same frames floating around the internet. Apparently it's always magic hour in Venice.
Not MI related I'm starting to like Tom's attire when he's out and about.
Anyone recognise his polo shirt he wore at the British grand prix and those sunnies.
For 60 years old he is the essence of cool I reckon .
I was thinking he's got to be one of the most important people in the history of sunglasses 😁 He pretty much single-handedly ensured that not just one but two models of Ray Bans became iconic and can never go out of production (he maybe even saved Ray Bans themselves), and in pretty much every film he has a new, great pair! I wish I could find so manny sunnies that suit me! 😊
Agreed love his style think the polo could be Tom ford
Not my discovery, but sharing it here as it is from the Dead Reckoning trailer.
The sunglasses have been IDed on sunglasseswiki as Santos De Cartier Sunglasses with the model number CT0038S and color 016.
I personally am unsure about the 016 color identification. In the trailer and in a close-up below it looks more silver than gold. I also wonder about the 61mm size.
This colorway in 59mm from Jomashop CT0038S 003 looks closer to me.
As does the CT0038S 001 albeit a little darker in the lenses.
This is an MI thread, but I just want to say that Tom Cruise's gray suit in Collateral is what really opened my eyes as a teen to the fact that a suit never has to be boring and blah and typical black. A suit can be slick, badass.
But the mid 2000s as a student on a budget for me still meant wearing jorts and Old Navy graphic shirts wherever I went.
Until the PTS Skyfall suit came along and brought it back home for me and convinced me that I could rock an awesome suit too.
Special mention goes to the Belfast suit in Mission Impossible Fallout. Dark silver with apparently green dress shirt and brown\purple tie.
And I also enjoy the minimalist style of his Maverick outfit: the classic jacket, white T, blue jeans, because I imagine it's a simple outfit that so many of Royale's looks would match with: the Solden jacket, the harrington, either cardigan, the upcoming Royale jacket.
great detective work , Beautiful glasses but £800 ! i'll pass I reckon
I think your right mate , I believe it maybe this one - I've managed to grab one so see how it fits.
Also spotted some other tom ford polos TC has been wearing, some cracking towelling type ones
Unfortunately not. This TF polo has a 2 button placket, Cruise is wearing a 3 button polo.
@OMEGA BOND WATCHES has posted a video review of the MI:DR Cartier sunglasses. He has stated the Cartier's are the colorway 007. Quite possible, and it would explain why the glasses look gold in some pictures but not in others.
