Back to Moviefone 2011 Holiday Movie Preview
'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol'
Release Date: Dec. 16 IMAX; Dec. 21 wide
Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt and his super-spy team go on the run again in 'Ghost Protocol.' If you thought Cruise was getting a little long-in-the-tooth to keep sprinting away from explosions, 'M:I 4' snagged Jeremy Renner as a bit of young(er) blood as well as 'Incredibles' director Brad Bird, making his live-action debut with major flare. 'Ghost Protocol' features some thrilling action set-pieces, including the much buzzed-about skyscraper run set on the world's tallest building. It remains to be seen if this is Hunt's last lap, but you know Cruise will throw himself full throttle into the movie's dangerous stunt-work. -- Eric Larnick
