The IMAX poster for Brad Bird’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol has been released, this time with 100% more dangling Tom Cruise. Bird shot a portion of the film using the uber high-quality IMAX cameras, and the image on display in this poster is one such shot. Cruise even performed this death-defying stunt himself, as he was suspended off of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world located in Dubai (pics or it didn’t happen proof can be found here). Bird’s impeccable animation resume includes The Incredibles and Ratatouille, and MI:4 marks the director’s live-action debut. I liked what I saw in the theatrical trailer, so I’ve got high hopes for this one.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. The film stars Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg, Josh Holloway, Michael Nyqvist, and Tom Wilkinson. Previews for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol begin in select IMAX and conventional theaters on December 16th, with the film opening wide on December 21st.
Here’s the poster (via Yahoo!):
Here’s the official synopsis:
Director Brad Bird and Producer J.J. Abrams bring us the action packed, entertainment event of the holiday season with MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL. 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.
