    Mission: Impossible III (stylized as M:i:III [and sometimes as M:I-3]) is a 2006 American action spy film co-written and directed by J. J. Abrams (in his directorial debut), co-written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and co-produced by and starring Tom Cruise in the role of IMF agent Ethan Hunt. It is the third installment in the Mission: Impossible film series, following 2000’s Mission: Impossible 2. In the film, Ethan (Cruise) has retired from field work for the Impossible Missions Force (IMF) and trains new recruits. However, he is sent back into action to track down the elusive arms dealer Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman). — Wikipedia

    The poster shown at the top combines Bullet Small Caps (House Industries) with smaller type in Bank Gothic. Type designer Tal Leming writes:

    Bullet was based on a bit of lettering drawn by Ken Barber for the House Industries Pop Art package. House got so many calls from people looking to buy the “Pop Art font” that they had no choice but to actually make it, so they turned to me. Since then Bullet has been used for all sorts of racing, speed, xxxxxxtreme, etc. matters. It also appeared on Arrested Development. Mission accomplished!

    The other poster versions feature what appears to be a custom logotype (probably based on Bullet), plus stretched and slanted Eurostile with gradient fills, outlines, and other effects.
