Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

Don't get me wrong, the first trailer for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol certainly got me excited to see what The Incredibles director Brad Bird can bring to live-action filmmaking. It has everything a Mission Impossible sequel needs: a great ensemble team that includes Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Josh Holloway and Jeremy Renner, some promising action, a story full of deception and intrigue, and of course, Tom Cruise running. However, in this new teaser poster for the sequel, I have to say that IMF agent Ethan Hunt looks rather sickly, almost like Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 50/50. Anyway, see the poster below!

Here's the teaser poster Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol from Yahoo! Movies:

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.

Tom Cruise stated 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.

So did that mean the Luther was able to travel between the each universe?

Paula Patton gave birth to her first child with her toyboy husband Robin Thicke merely five months before filming began. In Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, she flaunts her post-pregnancy figure that boasts an ample cleavage, fuller legs and a fuller backside. I'm a new mother myself and I highly recommend having children. My hips are breasts are bigger. I'm loving it! I feel like more of a woman now. It definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before.

Always loved Toms movies and became a massive fan of his person after the couch jump at Oprahs. Coolest dude ever. Can`t wait for this, it is going to be epic.

Looks like poster for Assasin's Creed 10

I think it's just the result of photoshopping a 49 year old to look 25 The weird part of the poster to me is the size difference between Mission:Impossible and Ghost Protocol. No 'Tom Cruise' written on the poster, either. It's like they're embarrassed about everything that got this film greenlit in the first place.

I think it looks pretty damn cool. What Alex thinks its sick? Go figure.

ShawnKeim on Sep 9, 2011


Sick as in cool? Yes. I'm feeling a bit of Minority Report here, with that hood and all. Or sick as not looking that healthy? I wouldn't agree with that.

Robert L. Tuva on Sep 9, 2011


How can you tell through all the Photoshop?

jc on Sep 9, 2011


Are they still letting Ethan write stuff?

Mr_orange12 on Sep 9, 2011


Ehh, it's just Tom Cruise grimacing like he has a tummy ache.

Mayhem on Sep 10, 2011


Damn it. I had managed to put this movie out of my mind, and here you go reminding me of it.  No more Ghost Protocol posts until December, okay? I can't handle all this anticipation.

Craig on Sep 10, 2011


What a shit poster. There's nothing good coming from this movie.

Anonymous on Sep 10, 2011


Whatever! I think it looks cool. Not that I will actually see the movie anytime soon after it releases.

Jordyn on Sep 11, 2011


the mi's get better with each movie and judging by the trailer this should be the best so far

Gary thomas on Sep 12, 2011


Even if he's considered a kook now, Tom is the quintessential movie star in my opinion. Can't wait to see this. Love Bird and Cruise.

Johnny Neat on Sep 12, 2011


Looks kick ass. Sickly? I think it's called being in chacacter. What's he supposed to like, Zohan or Captain America? Geez.

David on Sep 19, 2011


all M:I installments have Tom facing sideways.  Now he's facing us.  Next part we'll see the back of his head.  That's what Ron Hubbard told me.

Excited to watch Josh holloway. Btw cruise still looks better than renner. I don't know why they talkin about his replacement.
