Cruise is High on the 'Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol' IMAX Poster
No, despite the fact that I thought Tom Cruise looked rather sickly on the first teaser poster for Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, this new poster doesn't have the actor actually looking stoned. However, it does have him hanging on for dear life on the side of the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai, the world's tallest building. We've seen a glimpse of the stunt which Cruise took on himself in the movie's first trailer, but with this new poster touting the early IMAX release of the film from director Brad Bird, I'm betting another trailer isn't far behind as the movie hits theaters (IMAX only) on December 16th. See below.
Here's the new IMAX poster for Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol from Yahoo:
Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Brad Bird, of animated films The Iron Giant, The Incredibles and Ratatouille previously. This stars Tom Cruise as Agent Ethan Hunt along with a supporting cast including Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Josh Holloway, Tom Wilkinson, Paula Patton, Léa Seydoux and Michael Nyqvist. Producer J.J. Abrams crafted the story with Cruise, and writers André Nemec and Josh Applebaum (both of "Alias", "Life on Mars") penned the screenplay. Paramount is bringing Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol to theaters + IMAX starting on December 16th this winter.
Last year at this film's press conference in Dubai, Tom Cruise was quoted as saying: "One of the things I always wanted for the franchise was for it not to have a number afterwards. I've never done sequels to films and I never thought of these films as sequels." I think what he meant was that all of the Mission: Impossible movies are set in their own alternate reality/universe and are not sequels or connected to each other. That explains why there is no continuity between the movies and why they keep using mostly new casts. It would have been good if they had emphasised this from the second film onwards and given each film a subtitle instead of a number.

Superwoman Paula Patton is so voluptuous and shapely in ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ after giving birth to her first child with her toyboy husband Robin Thicke merely five months before filming began.In the movie, she flaunts her amazing post-pregnancy figure that boasts an ample cleavage, fuller legs and a fuller backside.Her incredible physique and sexy new curves probably added to her performance in delicious and wonderful ways.

Something went missing in the Mission Impossible movies for me. I still enjoy them, but consider that there was only like one gunshot in Brian de Palma's version. It was more about the conspiracy and solving the puzzle (while still being entertaining) and less about action and crazy stunts. It was like a clever man's spy flick. But I'm still looking forward to this. Tom Cruise is brilliant.

I was thinking exactly about this. Recently rewatched all three I found De Palma's the smartest, scenes are really thought out mostly in my opinion, without over sized action and huge guns. The last one however I think is the best story-wise.

I think it's a great poster. Catches the eye and makes you want to see more.

No painfully obvious photoshopping. I approve.
