If you were thinking an image of a brooding Tom Cruise would be the perfect way to top off your week, then Paramount Pictures really delivers with the first poster for Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol, director Brad Bird's live-action debut.
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.
Produced by Cruise, J.J. Abrams and Paula Wagner, the fourth installment of the franchise also stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Josh Holloway, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Lea Seydoux and Anil Kapoor. It opens Dec. 21.
