The trailer shows Tom as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, who is on a new mission — to track down a weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands.
Tom's death-defying stunts in the action-packed trailer are all that everyone seems to be talking about. But soon after the release of the trailer, netizens noticed some similarities between Tom in Mission: Impossible and Shah Rukh Khan in this year's blockbuster hit, Pathaan.
In one of the sequences in the trailer, Tom can be seen hanging off a cliff. While another scene is about a train crash. Both of these stunts were part of SRK's Pathaan.
Twitteratis were quick to point out the similarities, with some even saying that the same people who poked fun at Shah Rukh and Pathaan are now lauding Tom and Mission: Impossible.
Many others said that "Lord Anand" (Pathaan director Siddharth Anand) and Bollywood should be proud that Hollywood is aping Hindi films.
What do you think? Is this a coincidence, or has Tom copied Shah Rukh?
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is slated to release in theatres on July 12.
Pathaan is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
