Coming Soon has a new clip from the upcoming Tom Cruise franchise actioner, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, which is directed by Brad Bird.  It finds Cruise’s Ethan Hunt tracking a bad guy in the midst of a heavy sandstorm.  The film centers on the Mission Impossible team, led by Hunt, having to go rogue when they’re implicated in a terrorist bombing.  The film was partially shot in IMAX, and on the subject, Bird had the following to say: “When we were first looking at the image of Tom climbing the Burj, in the long shots we could not only see the traffic in the reflections when he presses down on the glass… But you actually saw the glass warp slightly because of the pressure of his hand. You would never see that in 35mm. The fact that the screen fills your vision and is super sharp seems more life-like.”

Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Anil Kapoor, Vladimir Mashkov, Lea Seydoux and Josh Holloway costar.  The film opens on December 16th in IMAX and December 21st in regular theatres.
