Good news today for fans of Tom Cruise and larger-than-life movie screens. The famously short actor won't look quite so small when his starring role in Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol gets thrown up onto IMAX screens five days before its scheduled Dec. 21 release.
The news comes from Bird himself, speaking in an interview with Hero Complex. While the entire movie will be writ large across 200 different multi-story IMAX screens, only a small portion of the film -- around 25 minutes -- was actually shot using IMAX cameras. The early release will hit the 200 IMAX screens plus a handful of "prestige" theaters on Dec. 16.
