Tom Cruise reprises Ethan Hunt in the fourth movie released exactly one month from today in IMAX theatres.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is vastly approaching and Paramount Pictures have debuted four new characters posters on their Facebook page for the movie. These had leaked in Russia early in the week but now we get the English ones... though annoyingly the UK facebook page don't have the Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg or the Paula Patton character posters so we have had to include the Russian ones for those. See them below... featuring Cruse, Renner, Pegg, Vladimir Mashkov, Paula Patton and Lea Seydoux. Surprisingly no character poster for Josh Holloway who we believe is a major player in the new movie. Update: Looks like Facebook now have English posters (or maybe I missed them all along?) so I have updated these... It's been a little while since we blogged about the fourth Mission: Impossible movie and I somehow missed the debut of the latest trailer below, but man this is the festive blockbuster I'm looking to the most. Given the choice between this and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows... well there is no choice. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol will be the live action debut of The Incredibles helmer Brad Bird and the movie itself looks incredible. High octane adrenaline and a stunning array of eye-gouging set pieces, this looks to the biggest Mission: Impossible movie to date. Watch the latest trailer below and yes, it does reveal a major character death but at least unlike Mission: Impossible 2 when Anthony Hopkins was all over the trailer only to not be in the movie very much at all, at least they aren't hinting at a major role for this person...

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is released exclusively on IMAX on December 16th (yes, with The Dark Knight Rises 6 minute prologue attached if you are lucky) and then five days later nationwide.
