21 New Photos from <i>Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol</i>

Paramount Pictures has released new 21 stills and behind-the scenes photos from Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol, the fourth installment of the Tom Cruise-led action franchise.

This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization’s name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this.

Brad Bird's live-action directorial debut, Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol also stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Josh Holloway, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Lea Seydoux and Anil Kapoor. It opens in IMAX Dec. 16 in advance of a Dec. 21 wide release.
