Los Angeles – Oct. 5, 2011 – IMAX Corporation and Paramount Pictures today announced that Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol will begin previews in IMAX beginning Friday, Dec. 16 and playing through the film’s run at the box office, which begins worldwide on Dec. 21, 2011. This marks the first time a domestic feature release has been released early in IMAX® theatres and reinforces the event nature of this highly-anticipated film. Directed by Academy Award®-winner Brad Bird, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Paula Patton.
Coupled with the early window of engagement, the IMAX release of this fourth installment of Mission: Impossible features approximately 30 minutes of scenes shot with IMAX cameras. These specific sequences will expand to fill the entire screen, exclusively in IMAX, and further immerse the audience in the explosive action and vast scope of the film. One featured sequence includes the unbelievable stunt performed by Tom Cruise as he scaled the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai, providing an up-close, you-are-there experience as only IMAX can.
